    Cedric has been speaking to Sky Sports ahead of tonight's clash, saying: "We always had confidence from day one.

    "You know sometimes it's difficult when things don't go the way we want.

    "But I was sure we could turn it around and the team has showed this.

    "We now need to keep going, it's still so early and we need to keep getting good results and this is the way forward.

    "We are happy to have had a good run now, but we need to stay on it [and] make it as long as possible."

    Leeds have won or progressed from just three of their 12 domestic cup ties against Arsenal.

    But they did beat the Gunners in the 1968 League Cup final AND the 1972 FA Cup final.

    Their other victory came in the fourth round of the 1996-97 FA Cup.

    There's just ten minutes to go now until we find out who the manager's have selected for tonight's clash.

    Will promising youngster Charlie Patino feature for the Gunners?

    He was expected to play in the last round against AFC Wimbledon and didn't, but he is in the squad this evening.

    The 18-year-old is highly rated at the Emirates, and is likely to get his first minutes in an Arsenal shirt tonight.

      This will be the first meeting between Arsenal and Leeds in the League Cup since September 1979.

      The Gunners won a second round second match 7-0 at Highbury that day.

      Incidentally it's also their biggest ever win in the competition.

      Arsenal breezed into the fourth round of the competition with a 3-0 home win against AFC Wimbledon last time out.

      Leeds meanwhile played out a dull 0-0 draw with Fulham at Craven Cottage.

      The Whites ended up progressing though after a 6-5 victory on penalties.

      Here's the Arsenal side SunSport have predicted for this evening's clash.

      Bernd Leno will be thrown back in between the sticks, having lost his place in the Premier League to Aaron Ramsdale.

      Cedric Soares could replace Takehiro Tomiyasu at right-back, while Nuno Tavares can continue to deputise for Tierney.

      Ben White and Gabriel are likely to be given the night off – with Rob Holding and Pablo Mari candidates to return to the side.

      Albert Sambi Lokonga started against Aston Villa and could be given another chance to shine against Leeds as he grows into this Arsenal side.

      Welcome to our live blog of the Carabao Cup fourth round clash between Arsenal and Leeds.

      The two sides enter tonight’s game knowing a place in the last eight of the competition is at stake.

      And although both managers are expected to rest players the tie at the Emirates is arguably the standout tie of the round.

      The two sides come into the game with vastly different fortunes of late.

      Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal are unbeaten in their last seven games in competitions, while Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds have won just two games this campaign.

      One of which was the third-round victory over Fulham, and even that was on penalties after a goalless draw in normal time.

      In team news wholesale changes are expected, with key men set to miss out for both sides.

      The Gunners are likely to be without Kieran Tierney again after he sat out of the 3-1 win against Aston Villa with a bruised ankle.

      Leeds meanwhile will be without the likes of Junior Firpo, Raphinha and Patrick Bamford.

      Kicck off tonight is at 7.45pm, with the starting line-ups coming up in half an hour’s time!
