League Cup Jinx Hits Arsenal

Last time around, it was Manchester United. Now, it's Arsenal’s.

The high-flying Gunners got taken to ground to the tune of a 3-0 League Cup elimination by Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.

Maybe the Premiership giants don't take it seriously enough, but the League Cup gets its revenge by crossing off a big name in the early stages ever year.

Arsenal seems to have given its defense a day off:

Petr Čech is no Keylor Navas, it seems. Lucas João didn't mind.

And for the coup de grace, Sam Hutchinson must've thought scoring on Arsenal was like taking candy from a baby:

It seems like Arsenal not only gave its star players a day off, but also its defensive mantras.
