League Cup Draw: Arsenal to face Chelsea, Manchester giants handed easy opponents
Arsenal will host Chelsea in the mouth-watering clash of the Fourth Round of the Capital One Cup. The Gunners needed a penalty shoot-out to defeat West Bromwich Albion last night to set up a titanic clash with Jose Mourinho’s men.
Manchester United progressed to the next round as well after defeating arch-rivals Liverpool 1-0 at Old Trafford. Javier Hernandez scored the only goal of the match, after the Mexican slotted home from close range, meeting a delicious corner from Wayne Rooney.
The Red Devils, courtesy of that victory have set up a date with Norwich City at home. Derby rivals Manchester City defeated Wigan convincingly on Tuesday night and will travel to Tyneside to face Alan Pardew’s Newcastle United in the next round.
