Arsenal pair Cedric Soares and Nicolas Pepe have been named in the Carabao Cup Team of the Tournament, with the selection being named prior to the final interestingly.
I’m not sure why players’ performances in the final are to count for nothing for the award, but two of our squad players have been named in the selection.
Pepe and Cedric haven’t been playing a key role in our side this term, with Takehiro Tomiyasu favoured at right-back and Gabriel Martinelli and Emile Smith Rowe having been keeping the Ivory Coast international out of the side, but their displays in the League Cup clearly caught the eye for some.

This could well pose as another confidence boost to Pepe, who arrived back from the AFCON with a new lease of life, but it is just a shame that our side couldn’t reach today’s final.
