Arsenal and Chelsea have both progressed to the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup following their respective wins over Southampton and Leeds United on Tuesday, 26 October.

Playing with a home-field advantage at Emirates Stadium, the Gunners opened the scoreboard with a header from Calum Chambers in the 55th minute. Fourteen minutes later, team-mate Eddie Nketiah mis-hit a shot from a tight corner into the net.

The 2-0 win means that Arsenal has now won six of its last eight games in all competitions.

Over at Stamford Bridge, hometown heroes Chelsea were in the lead 1-0 after Kai Havertz delivered a header in the 44th minute. But Leeds evened the score three minutes into the second half, thanks to a tap-in shot by Che Adams.

The game went into penalties – ultimately, the Blues sealed themselves a victory after a 4-3 win on spot kicks.
