Carabao Cup: Arsenal to host Spurs in quarter-finals

Adjust Comment Print

Blackpool boss Terry McPhillips bemoaned a red card to Paudie O'Connor as his side pushed 10-man Arsenal all the way before losing their Carabao Cup clash at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners will also be without Konstantinos Mavropanos and Laurent Koscielny, as the wait for the duo goes on.

Salah enjoyed a successful season against Arsenal past year, scoring against the North Londoners in both Premier League fixtures.

At the beginning of the season, the Football Association announced that yellow cards received will no longer be carried across varying football competitions, staying specific to each competition the booking is awarded in.

However, the Gunners could receive a fitness boost in the form of Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac.

However, the midfielder was still not able to rejoin full training with the rest of the Liverpool squad on Wednesday afternoon so time is running out for the 23-year-old to recover in time for the trip to north London.

Bellerin, Monreal and Shkodran Mustafi have made up three-quarters of the regular Arsenal back four this season, with Rob Holding or Sokratis the other member.

But he reckons the likes of Salah will be keen on winning trophies at Anfield.

Arsenal overcame the disappointment of Sunday's draw with Crystal Palace by making it 12 wins in their last 13 matches.

"When Arsenal win I'm happy", he said.

Arsenal host Tottenham in the Premier League on December 2, meaning the London rivals will meet twice within the span of a few weeks.

It's also Emery's birthday on November 3, the day of the match; Klopp and the Reds will be hoping they'll be the ones celebrating at full-time, though.
