Carling Cup quarter finals draw.
October 29, 2011 9:41am CST
The draw for the quarter final is out. There will be two all Premier League clashes. Arsenal v Man City and Chelsea v Liverpool. Arsenal will welcome Nasri back. Arsenal is expected to blood their younger players while Man City is likely to field their "B" team. Make no mistake. The "B" team is quite a formiable side. Gunners have not lost a Carling Cup tie at The Emirates. Is the run going to run? For the other BPL tie, Torres and Mieleres will host their old team. But it is unlikely that they will be in the starting lineup but if they do, it will be interesting to see. So what is your prediction for the semi finals? Arsenal v Manchester City Manchester United v Crystal Palace Chelsea v Liverpool Cardiff v Blackburn

well, this gonna be amazing quarter final..I think those two matches will be great..I think both of Arsenal and City will be great clashed and really personal for Samir Nasri.. he wil be played against old club and meet his former coach Arsene Wenger.. Liverpool fans also will see Torres and meireles and they must show their best to show something for new fans..I think Liverpool will be more serious than ever, since they can focus due to no champion league for them..Then no need to worried about players rotation..As long as they can calm and focus, they will be able to beat Chelsea

Wow! The draw is really an exciting one. Arsenal vs. Man City would be a blockbuster. Similarly Liverpool vs. Chelsea would be another brilliant match. As you pointed out both Arsenal would be welcoming back Nasri and it would be interesting to see how he plays at Emirates for a different club now. I think Man United and Blackburn would fancy their chances of making it to the semis. It might be interesting to see how Blackburn go about it, whether they put Premier League survival ahead of League cup or whether they take their chances of winning a title!! Cheers! Ram
