The matches will be played between January 8 and 22, 2018.

On the other hand, Chelsea defeated Bournemouth 2-1 at their stadium, Stamford Bridge, while Bristol City continued their unbelievable run in the competition, defeating the reigning champions, Manchester United, 2-1 thanks to a late goal from Korey Smith.

Who impressed for Arsenal against West Ham in the Carabao Cup quarter-final?

Arsenal faced West Ham while current league leaders Manchester City travelled to Leicester, Chelsea were at home against fellow Premier League side Bournemouth while Manchester United had a trip to border city Bristol to face Bristol City who now are in the Championship, 2nd tier of English football.

Chelsea won in the cup against the Cherries 2-1 at home thanks to an Alvaro Morata victor in the stoppage time. "I have had good and bad times against them", he said, in quotes reported by the Evening Standard.

If I put myself in the Arsenal camp, I don't think it's ideal for them to play us over two legs.

"Do the recent results against them give us extra motivation? Yes".

The reverse fixtures take place a fortnight later, with Bristol City hosting Pep Guardiola's side on January 23 and Chelsea travelling to the Emirates Stadium on January 24.

'Last season we were able to win the league and to reach the FA Cup final as well - it was a great achievement for us. These are two big teams going at it.

"You still expect the big teams to have enough to get through and that's what's happened with our semi-final".
