Carling Cup: Arsenal Vs Manchester City (0 - 1) On November 29th 2011 by mukina2: 11:14pm On Nov 28, 2011
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed he will give some of his fringe players a chance to impress in their Carling Cup quarter-final against Manchester City at Emirates Stadium.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Emmanuel Frimpong, Yossi Benayoun and South Korea captain Park Ju-young are all in contention as some of the Gunners key men will be given a break.

Midfielder Abou Diaby is a doubt after picking up a muscular injury in Saturday's 1-1 Barclays Premier League draw with Fulham.

Wenger has challenged those fringe players to show they have the strength of character to come through.

"I believe that some players are on the fringe of being really limited. I will rest some players, but I still want to play a team that has a chance to win the game,'' Wenger told Arsenal Player.

"Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Emmanuel Frimpong will play, but I consider them to be first-team players.

"Park is adapting to the level he is facing here and he has another opportunity against Manchester City tomorrow night to show that he can do it."Yossi has been absolutely fantastic, but we have so much choice in midfield and we play with three strikers. The chances for the midfielders are not so big and that is why he has not played as much as he deserves.''

Wenger added: "The attitude of all the players that came in has been great, everybody helps focus the team to win and he does that as well.''

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is planning wholesale changes.

Striker Mario Balotelli and midfielder Gareth Barry are suspended, but may have been left out anyway after featuring in yesterday's Barclays Premier League game at Liverpool.

Former England midfielder Owen Hargreaves, fit after a recent calf injury, and defenders Kolo Toure and Stefan Savic are among the more high-profile players who could be involved.

Mancini is set to make wholesale changes for a match which kicks off around 50 hours after the Anfield encounter finished.

Gael Clichy said: "That is up to the manager again and you have to accept his decision, but of course I am ready and if asked to play I will be more than happy to.

"I don't need to speak about Arsenal, it is a great club, a great team with many of my friends there.

"If I can play on Tuesday, or even be involved, it would be something that I would really look forward to. But the manager is rotating the players, so we will have to wait and see what his decision is.''

Manchester city assassins will murd, the Arsenal boys. the only way Man city can justify the ridiculous amount of money they have spent buying players is by winning anything they can get their hands on
