ARSENAL AND TOTTENHAM will face off in a mouthwatering north London derby in the pick of the Carabao Cup quarter-final draw.

Both Spurs and the Gunners won their respective fourth-round ties on Wednesday, and have now been drawn together in the fifth round of the competition. 

Elsewhere, Chelsea and Bournemouth will make up another all-Premier League tie, with the Blues barely escaping against Frank Lampard and Derby County on Wednesday. 

League One side Burton Albion and Championship side Middlesbrough are the only two non-Premier League teams remaining in the comptition, and they will face off in another quarter-final.

The winner of Man City and Fulham will take on the winner of Leicester and Southampton in the final quarter-final match. 

Leicester City were set to face Southampton on Tuesday, but the match was postponed following the tragic death of Foxes chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha in a helicopter crash.

The matches will be played during the week commencing December 17.
