After edging past Liverpool on penalties, Arsenal would face another tough test against Manchester City in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup. The Gunners had to dig deep to fight for their place and would be thankful to their goalkeeper, Bernd Leno, for some fantastic saves that saw them through against a resilient Liverpool side.

The draw for the quarter-final pairings was held immediately Arsenal’s victory was confirmed, and there are some mouth-watering encounters to look forward to.

The rejuvenated Everton side will hope to shatter the dreams of Manchester United as they have been paired to meet in the quarter finals. Carlo Ancelotti seems to have injected some winning inspiration to his Everton side and their encounter against the Red Devils should be something to look out for.

Arsenal, on the other hand, couldn’t have had a more difficult test with their pairing against Manchester City. Pep Guardiola’s side wound probably be feeling like the wounded lion going into the match after Arsenal defeated them in last season’s FA Cup semi final, en route winning the trophy for a record 14 times. However, Mikel Arteta would want to prove a point once again to his ex-boss and perhaps earn himself another bragging rights in the committee of football tacticians. It’s all spiced up to be one delicious battle in the Carabao Cup quarter finals.

The other two pairings would see Championship side, Brentford, take on Newcastle United, while another Championship team, Stoke City, would be hoping for a good day against Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur.
