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.
