Arsene Wenger’s side booked their place in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals after beating Doncaster Rovers 1-0 in the third round and Norwich City 2-1 in the fourth round. Arsenal have looked less than impressive in the competition this season, but they remain just two wins away from the final nevertheless.
Arsenal will play their League Cup tie at home on the weekend beginning December 18. They’ve been in fine form in recent weeks and will be hoping that continues by the time they lock horns with their fellow quarter-finalists.
The League Cup has been a competition Wenger has never prioritised, instead allowing his fringe players and youngsters the chance to prove their worth. Eddie Nketiah has recently become an Arsenal hero after coming off the bench to score the equaliser and winning goal against Norwich.
Arsenal have a poor record in the Carabao Cup down the years, and it’s the one domestic trophy Arsene Wenger has not won during his time in charge. This season’s competition will be incredibly difficult with so many elite Premier League clubs joining Arsenal in the last-eight – Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea.
