Leicester 0-2 Arsenal: Carabao Cup win for Gunners sets up possible Liverpool clash

Christian Fuchs' second-half own goal gave the Gunners the lead and Eddie Nketiah bundled home in stoppage time to add gloss to the victory for a Mikel Arteta's side that once again did not include Mesut Ozil.

The result maintains their strong start to the season and secures a possible trip to Anfield to face Liverpool if the Premier League champions can beat Lincoln City on Thursday.

How Arsenal won it

Brendan Rodgers made 11 changes to the team that beat Burnley but his side still started brightly with Marc Albrighton doing brilliantly to carve out the game's first chance.

Bernd Leno, preferred to new arrival Alex Runarsson, came off his line to save well from Kelechi Iheanacho at point-blank range after the Nigerian had been put clean through.
