Football: Arsenal to field Cech in League Cup game against Sheffield Wednesday

(REUTERS) - Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed goalkeeper Petr Cech will be involved in Tuesday's League Cup clash with Sheffield Wednesday after David Ospina was ruled out with a shoulder injury.

Wenger is known to use the League Cup as a platform to give youngsters in the squad a taste of first-team action. However, he has opted against handing 21-year-old Matt Macey his first appearance for the senior team.

"Ospina is still out so Cech will certainly play," Wenger said.

Winger Joel Campbell has struggled to break into the first team this season and Wenger hopes the Costa Rica international will prove he has the quality to play on a regular basis.

"I like Joel Campbell very much for two reasons. One is that he has outstanding individual quality but he is also a team player.

"I'm convinced he will get a chance here and that he will take it.

"He has another opportunity against Sheffield Wednesday and I'm hopeful that he will show that he has the quality to play for Arsenal."
