Unai Emery’s side secured a clash with Blackpool after beating Championship side Brentford 3-1 at the Emirates in the third round.

A brace from striker Danny Welbeck put the Gunners 2-0 ahead before Alan Judge pulled a goal back in the second half for Dean Smith’s Bees.

A late Alexandre Lacazette strike sealed the match in front of an attendance announced by Arsenal as 49,586.

The victory means Arsenal will now host Terry McPhillips’ Tangerines on Wednesday, October 31 – which also happens to be Halloween.

McPhilips, the former Halifax striker and Blackburn Rovers assistant boss, has steadied the ship after Gary Bowyer left the club in August.

The Divison One side are currently in ninth place in the third tier and are unbeaten in their last five league games, with two wins and three draws.

The fixture will also mean there is no clash with Freddie Ljungberg’s U21 side who play Chletenham Town in the Checkatrade Trophy at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium – formely known as Whaddon Road – on Tuesday, October 30.
