The Gunners have been handed the ‘easiest’ of the sides left in the Quarter Final of the Capital One Cup as they are set to face League Two side Bradford City who managed to pip Wigan Athletic yesterday on penalties.
With Manchester United eliminated by Chelsea in the thrilling 5-4 victory for the London side, Swansea seeing off Liverpool and Norwich beating Tottenham, the Capital One Cup is right up for grabs with just five Premier League teams left in the draw out of the full eight.
As the match at Reading proved, any team will be difficult to overcome in the competition especially at home so Wenger will not tread lightly when they travel to Bradford. The home side will be difficult to break down, so the Gunners will need to be full of flair and venom like the second half of yesterday’s historic 7-5 comeback win over Reading.
But at the end of the day all Gooners will be happy to be facing a League Two side over a Premiership side! The last time these two sides met was all the way back in the 2000/2001 Premier League season where the Gunners were victorious at home 2-0, and a 1-1 draw in Bradford.
Full draw for the Quarter Finals of the Capital One Cup to take place in the week of 10th December:
Leeds United v Chelsea
Swansea City v Middlesbrough
Norwich City v Aston Villa
Bradford City v Arsenal
