No Arsenal debut for Patino but Tavares, Smith Rowe & Saka sparkle in Carabao Cup win over Wimbledon

The Gunners will go into this weekend’s North London derby brimming with confidence after racking up a third consecutive win in all competitions
Arsenal cruised through to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup with a 3-0 win against AFC Wimbledon on Wednesday night.

The League 1 side fought gamely after falling behind to an early Alexandre Lacazette penalty in north London, but eventually caved in the second half following the introduction of Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka.
