Eddie Nketiah fired Arsenal into the quarter-finals of the League Cup with a brace against Norwich City on Tuesday, and the Gunners will find out their opponents in the next round on Thursday.
When is the draw?
The draw for the League Cup quarter-finals is on Thursday, with the final last-16 matches being played on Wednesday night. The draw starts at 4pm and will be streamed live on Twitter.
These are both welcome changes, particularly after one of the previous draws took place in the early hours of the morning, with no method to watch it from the UK.
Who could Arsenal face?
The teams that have already made it to the next round, who could potentially face Arsenal, are as follows.
- Bristol City
- Leicester City
- Manchester City
- Manchester United
Fighting for the final two spots, Chelsea play Everton at Stamford Bridge, and Tottenham face West Ham at Wembley.
What that means, is that wins for Chelsea and Spurs would leave five of the big-six still in the competition – with Liverpool already eliminated.
If that’s the case, there will be at least one big-six clash in the quarter-finals, potentially two. Personally, I hope Arsenal aren’t involved in it.
When will the quarter-final take place?
It’s set to be on the 19th and 20th December, per the Arsenal fixture list.
Most likely, it’ll be on Tuesday 19th, because the Gunners play Liverpool in the league on Friday.
