Gunners face Liverpool test in cup
As a reward for seeing off West Brom on Tuesday, Arsenal’s Carling Cup youngsters have been drawn against Liverpool for a fourth-round tie.
Unlike the past two seasons, Wenger’s kids have been denied a comfortable task for a place in the quarter-finals but like three seasons ago, the young Gunners will have to settle a big showdown with Rafa Benitez’s men at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal stormed the reds impressively with a 6-3 win at Anfield in 2006/07 but are likely to face a sterner test in the tie which will be played on either 27 or 28 October.
Fourth round draw:
Blackburn Rovers v Peterborough United
Manchester City v Scunthorpe United
Tottenham Hotspur v Everton
Barnsley v Manchester United
Chelsea v Bolton Wanderers
Sunderland v Aston Villa
Arsenal v Liverpool
Portsmouth v Stoke City
