LUCK DEVILS

LONDON. Manchester United landed an astonishing 12th home cup tie in a row as Newcastle were “rewarded” for beating Man City with a Carabao Cup trip to Old Trafford.

West Ham host Arsenal in what should be a tasty derby following Wednesday night’s fourth-round draw.

And, at least one club from outside the top two divisions will make the quarter-finals.

That’s because League Two Mansfield will face League One Port Vale at home.

Everton were drawn to meet Burnley at Goodison Park after a hard-grafting 2-1 triumph at Aston Villa.

And, after walloping Championship rivals Cardiff 5-2, Blackburn will go to Chelsea.

The ties will be played on the week commencing October 30.

Nicolas Jackson had helped the Blues forget their Premiership woes with their first goal of the month to see off Brighton earlier on Wednesday evening.

Relieved Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino said: “This is very important to build our confidence, and important for our fans to feel a victory again.”

And of Jackson he added: “I hope this moment can build his confidence and trust. He’s a very good player. I am very pleased for him.” – Sun.
