Carabao Cup: Arsenal to host Spurs in quarter-finals

Carabao Cup: Arsenal to host Spurs in quarter-finals

"It will have been a tough pill to swallow to miss out on winning the Champions League previous year", Murphy told bwin.

Unay Emery will need to find the delicate balance between rotating his squad for the League Cup game against Blackpool while also addressing the injuries issues among the Gunners defensive ranks.

Emery dodged a question about Ramsey's contract after Wednesday's 2-1 win over Blackpool in the Carabao Cup, but said he is confident the player is remaining focused on his job.

Emery insists the youngster was unlucky to see red.

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. Hector Bellerin had to be subbed off on Sunday, and it appears that Granit Xhaka may be asked to deputize at left-back once again.

Real have won the Champions League there seasons in a row and four out of the last five years.

It could well leave the Gunners somewhat unstable, particularly in the wide areas, if the two full-backs fail to recover in time-and with the likes of Mohamed Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri showing impressive form of late.

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

He went on to break the record for Premier League goals scored in a 38-game season.

The Gunners are now on a 12-match unbeaten run which saw them win 11 games in a row in all competitions before drawing with Roy Hodgson's Crystal Palace 2-2 last Sunday at Selhurst Park.
