- Carabao Cup quarter-final fixtures have been made and there are exciting matches
- Manchester City will take on Arsenal while Brentford host Newcastle United
- Manchester United will play away to Everton and Stoke host Tottenham
Carabao Cup quarter-final matches have been scheduled for December this year and fans will be treated to mouthwatering fixtures as last eight clubs battle for the coveted trophy.
Arsenal have drawn Manchester City in a game that will see Gunner’s manager Mikel Arteta square-up against his former boss at the Etihad Pep Guardiola as he was his assistant before he took the coaching role at the Emirates Stadium.
Arteta guided Arsenal to victory over Liverpool in the fourth-round via penalties after the game ended goalless as the Gunners now face the Citizens for a chance to reach the semis.
Recall that the Citizens were knocked out of last season's FA Cup semi-final by Arsenal on their way to winning the title and Arteta will be hoping for a repeat.
Also, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United will face-off with Everton while Newcastle travel to Brentford.
The final draw saw Stoke City pitched with Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham and all quarter-final matches will be played on December 22/23, 2020.
"Great draws. The one that stands out is Pep Guardiola vs Mikel Arteta - Arsenal are in really good form," SkySports pundit Jamie Redknapp said.
"It depends on what teams are put out but anything can happen and at this stage you're really close to a major trophy.
"I've been very impressed with Arsenal and it's going to be a very good game against City. Arteta was smiling about the draw - they're good friends but he'll still want to win!"
