League Cup: Arsenal to meet Manchester City after beating Liverpool

The master has been presented with a second opportunity to teach his prized student a lesson.

Mikel Arteta's Arsenal will host former tutor Pep Guardiola's Manchester City in the quarterfinals of the League Cup. The contest was revealed minutes after the Gunners beat Liverpool on penalties at Anfield.

Bernd Leno was the hero for Arsenal - he made seven saves in a goalless regular time before he thwarted Divock Origi and Harry Wilson from the penalty spot.

Joe Willock calmly bagged the match decider following Wilson's miss, and Arsenal got the better of Liverpool days after losing 3-1 to the Reds at the same venue.

Arteta, who was Guardiola's assistant for three-and-a-half years at City, guided Arsenal past his former employer 2-0 during the FA Cup semifinals last year in the pair's first managerial meeting. Arsenal went on to win the FA Cup final over Chelsea to extend Arteta's still faultless cup run while at the helm of the north London lot.

Also as part of Thursday's draw, Tottenham will take a trip to the Potters to face Stoke City, while Newcastle will also play an away match against a Championship opponent. The matchup follows Brentford's win over Fulham earlier in the day, redeeming their playoff final loss to the Cottagers in early August.

Rounding out the slate, in form Everton will welcome Manchester United to Goodison Park in a series of matches scheduled to kick off on Dec. 21.
