Last night saw Mauricio Pochettino’s much-changed Tottenham side turn up to The London Stadium and come away with a comfortable 3-1 win in the Carabao Cup. However, after the game, the Spurs fans eagerly waited for the quarter-final draw where they were drawn to face Arsenal away.

The news of the Arsenal draw is news that will be getting both sets of fans very excited. For The Lilywhites, a chance to dump Arsenal out of the competition and advance to the semi-finals is a tantalising prospect, whilst the Gunners will be keen to show their rivals just how far they’ve come under Unai Emery this season. The game will be played close to Christmas and it will be interesting to see how fixture congestion affects the tie.
As Tottenham were busy wiping the floor with West Ham, Arsenal were struggling through a home tie that looked easy enough on paper against Blackpool. The League One side showed that they could hold their own as they only fell to a 2-1 home loss at The Emirates, putting an end to The Tangerines impressive cup run. It will be a game that a lot of people will want to watch when Sours and Arsenal go toe-to-toe, and the fans will get a feel for how it will go when they travel to The Emirates in early December in the Premier League.
