Carabao Cup quarter-final draw: Arsenal to host Spurs

This is Arsenal's biggest test for two and a half months and in that period they've done nearly everything asked of them.

Leno started last weekend's draw at Crystal Palace, but Cech had only just returned to fitness after a hamstring injury.

Unai Emery's side are now eight unbeaten in the Premier League and looking impressive.

Central to Liverpool's strong start to the season has been their quality defensively, having just conceded four goals in their opening ten games of the Premier League season.

Hector Bellerin (thigh) is being assessed ahead of the game alongside fellow full-backs Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac - who are both recovering from hamstring issues - and Sokratis Papastathopoulos (ankle).

Jame Milner's strike shortly past the hour mark appeared destined to help Jurgen Klopp's side record a statement victory in pursuit of their first league title since 1990.

The last time these two sides met in the Premier League at the Emirates, a frantic clash in December a year ago, the full time scoreline read 3-3 and while we should expect goals, I highly doubt this Liverpool backline will concede three in one game. "The new history is in the present", he told a news conference on Friday.

The 22-year-old Khachanov, ranked 18th, is the first Russian to win here since Nikolay Davydekno in 2006. "Karen played really well and he deserved to win", Djokovic said.


Whether you put Arsenal in such a bracket is, I suppose, key to how you will bet in this one, but I suggest their attack is more than good enough to find the target.

"We have to check the dressing room at Basel again about what happened in there because the game changed immediately when we came back out".

Arsenal got their leveller with eight minutes remaining as substitute Alex Iwobi played Lacazette through on goal; as he half-rounded Alisson, he turned back to goal and found the far corner with a sweet finish after taking a touch to compose himself 12 yards out.

"Generally, the Premier League is a very intense league; we play against smaller clubs who play with huge intensity". "The most important thing for us is that every supporter enjoys the match, but we want to enjoy winning!"

The Gunners have been one of the surprise packages in the Premier League this season after Unai Emery took over the reins from Arsene Wenger in the summer.

Midfield duo Matteo Guendouzi (suspended) and Mohamed Elneny (thigh) are out, along with Laurent Koscielny (Achilles) and Konstantinos Mavropanos (groin). They are also likely to miss the Champions League trip to Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday.
