Carabao Cup: Arsenal to host Spurs in quarter-finals

Share

League One side Blackpool should not offer too much competition for the north London side, and with Liverpool making the trip to the Emirates on Saturday, Emery is set to shuffle the pack.

Arsenal are looking to get back on the winning track after their 2-2 tie away to Crystal Palace ended their 11-game winning streak. Nacho Monreal, Sead Kolasinac and Konstantinos Mavropanos all remain out.

The central midfielder has been a regular for Emery this term, but he will now miss the Premier League game against the Reds through suspension.

Paudie O'Connor, who was later sent off, pulled one back for Blackpool in the 66th minute before the visitors looked to have found an equaliser as Cech was dispossessed by Jay Spearing inside his penalty area.
