Wenger has a lot more injuries to contend with than his Italian counterpart, with Olivier Giroud, Aaron Ramsey, Nacho Monreal, Sead Kolasinac and Laurent Koscielny all sidelined.
Santi Cazorla is also unavailable, but new signing Konstantinos Mavropanos could be included in the matchday squad.
Potential Arsenal starting XI: Cech; Mertesacker, Holding, Mustafi, Bellerin, Maitland-Niles; Xhaka, Wilshere, Ozil; Lacazette, Sanchez.
BETTING & MATCH ODDS
Chelsea are 4/6 favourites to win according to dabblebet, with Arsenal priced at 17/4 to beat the Blues. A draw is available at 3/1.
The last game between the teams finished 2-2 and you can get odds of 14/1 for that to happen again.
Seven points may separate Chelsea and Arsenal in the Premier League table, but there has been very little between them in meetings they've had this season.
They have drawn twice in the league, while the only win - Arsenal's Community Shield triumph at the start of the season - came via penalties after an intense 120-minute deadlock.
Both sides are ostensibly out of the race for the league title, so the Carabao Cup represents an excellent opportunity to clinch a trophy, but the tie is probably more important for the Gunners.
Having been unceremoniously dumped out of the FA Cup by Nottingham Forest, the Gunners only have two avenues to collect silverware: the Europa League and this competition.
While the Blues can arguably afford to miss out on this particular trophy, they will, nonetheless, be eager to succeed and close another path to glory on their rivals.
