Arsenal will face Sunderland at the Emirates in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals.
The Gunners have beaten West Brom, AFC Wimbledon and Leeds United in the competition so far, keeping three clean sheets and scoring 11 goals.
The showdown with the Black Cats, who play their football in League One, was definitely the most favourable of the available opponents.
Elsewhere, Liverpool will play Leicester, Brentford will take on Chelsea and West Ham host Sp*rs. The ties will be played during the week commencing 20 December 2021.
For the Gunners that means between matches at Leeds United and the Boxing Day clash with Norwich.
Arsenal haven’t won the League Cup since 1992/93.
Time for Nketiah to score a hattrick then!
Wow, that couldn’t have turned out much better
Good draw. Time for our fringe players to shine ✨
That’s the draw we’d surely all pick and the rest of the draw isn’t too bad either, a nice way to start the day.
The day keeps getting better and better. Now for the El-Sackico
I’m actually supporting utd today. I need Ole permanently at the wheel! A draw will be sweet 😁👍
That’s a favourable one for us. We got the easiest draw.
Fantastic draw and I’m hoping that we blast many goals past them after their manager basically called us an easy tie
