Carabao Cup quarter-finals: Arsenal host Sunderland, West Ham at Spurs

Sunderland will travel to Arsenal in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup after the draw was made on Saturday morning.

The only Football League club left in the competition were able to avoid Chelsea and Liverpool, but the League One side will face Mikel Arteta’s side at the Emirates in the week commencing 20 December.

Elsewhere, Tottenham will host their London rivals West Ham after they were the first teams drawn out. Another derby between two sides in the capital will see Brentford host Chelsea again. The two west London clubs faced off earlier in the month with Thomas Tuchel’s side clinching a narrow 1-0 win after a hard-fought Premier League contest at the Brentford Community Stadium.

Liverpool were the penultimate team drawn out and they will entertain Leicester at Anfield, with the Reds looking to add to their eight overall wins in the competition – the joint-most along with Manchester City, who had won the tournament in each of the last four seasons but were knocked out by West Ham in the fourth round.
