Carling Cup Draw

Arsenal to travel to Burnley in Carling Cup

Burnley's reward for their Carling Cup upset of Chelsea is a home tie against Arsenal in the quarter-finals.

The Clarets beat Chelsea 5-4 on penalties at Stamford Bridge after a 1-1 draw on Wednesday night and will now host Arsene Wenger's impressive youngsters at Turf Moor.

Arsenal swept into the last eight with a 3-0 demolition of Wigan at the Emirates Stadium despite fielding a team composed almost entirely of teenagers.

Paul Ince will take his Blackburn team to his old stomping ground of Old Trafford to face Manchester United, while holders Tottenham have been drawn away at Watford.

Stoke City and Derby County will meet in an all-midlands clash in the other quarter-final.

Ties will be played week commencing December 1
