Arsenal to Face Sheffield United again in Carling Cup 2008-09

North London club Arsenal will take on Sheffield United once again in a knock-out competition as Gunners have been drawn against the Championship side in the third round of Carling Cup 2008-2009. Arsenal emerged winner in last year’s fourth round Carling Cup meeting with Sheffield United when they visited Bramall Lane.

Arsenal, this year, will have home advantage as the Blades will come to Emirates stadium to face the challenge of Arsenal. There is no doubt, Arsenal is clearly favorite for the match and the Gunners should not have any problem to get through the fourth round of the tournament.

Reigning champion Tottenham Hotspur will face premier league rival Newcastle United. Suprs could not win against Newcastle in their last five encounters, so defending the title would not be so easy for Tottenham Hotspur this season. Manchester United will welcome Middlesbrough in the third round Carling Cup meeting, while last year’s beaten finalist Chelsea will travel to Portsmouth in their pursuit to retain the title. Previous season’s semi finalist Everton will visit to Blackburn, while League One side Crewe will come to Anfield with some strong challenges for Premier league club Liverpool.
