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.
