We were paired with Division One side Blackpool in the next round of the Carabao Cup, after Saturday night’s (wait, what?) draw. You might remember we ran out 3-1 winners against Brentford this week in the 3rd round of the competition and once again face a lower league side beginning with B at home.

We face them at The Emirates, week commencing October 29th and basically the rest of this report is just fluff to make up the numbers/word count.

Arsenal 2-0 Watford, Arsenal leave it late…

Frank Lampard’s Derby visit Frank Lampard’s Chelsea while the 1961 League Champions Tottenham will go to West Ham as they bid to secure some silverware for the first time since 2009.

Full draw:
Manchester City vs Fulham
Bournemouth vs Norwich City
Arsenal vs Blackpool
Leicester City vs Everton / Southampton
West Ham vs Tottenham
Middlesbrough vs Crystal Palace
Chelsea vs Derby County
Burton Albion vs Nottingham Forest
