Arsenal’s reward for the 2-1 win over Blackpool this evening is a quarter-final tie against North London rivals Sp*rs.
They beat West Ham this evening to make progress themselves, and the game will take place at the Emirates Stadium on the 18th or 19th of December, just a couple of weeks after we play them at home in the Premier League.
The last time the two sides met in this competition was in September 2015 when Mathieu Flamini became the scourge of White Hart Lane both two goals in a 2-1 win.
It adds a certain something to the tie, particularly heading into the busy festive period.
Meanwhile, Arsenal have confirmed that the red card received by Matteo Guendouzi against Blackpool will rule him out of the Premier League game against Liverpool on Saturday.
Guendouzi's red card means he will serve a suspension against Liverpool in the league on Saturday, Arsenal have confirmed.

Which is a shame, and hopefully we’ll have a left-back available so Granit Xhaka can slot back into midfield.
