'Watch him have a blinder' - Arsenal fans react to confirmed Man City team news for Carabao Cup
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed that he will be sticking with Claudio Bravo in goal for his side’s Carabao Cup final clash against Arsenal at the weekend.
The Chilean stopper will take the place of mainstay Ederson in the Blues net as they aim to win their first trophy under the Spanish manager’s reign.
And Gunners fans feel that even with the 34-year-old in goal for the Champions-elect and well-known for being prone to making a gaffe or two, his appearance in the final will have no bearing on the outcome of the game.
One supporter said that the keeper would likely become ‘Oliver Khan just for one night,’ while another was even more negative, saying that Arsenal would ‘have zero shots on target probably.’
The final due to be played at Wembley on Sunday is likely to be Arsene Wenger’s side’s highlight of the season.
There isn’t much else for supporters of the club to look forward to after the weekend as the club are out of the running for the Premier League title and it is also looking unlikely that they will make it into the Champions League places for next season now that they are eight points off Liverpool in fourth.
And judging by some of the reactions on Twitter, even the return of Bravo doesn’t give the Gunners supporters any ray of hope ahead of the match.
Here is a selection of Arsenal responses to the news of Bravo’s place in goal:
Bravo will become prime Oliver Khan just for one night

One of the worst GK’s I’ve ever seen. Will we take advantage of it? Probably not.
