The fourth round ball number for Arsenal in this season’s Carabao Cup has been revealed ahead of the draw scheduled to take place on Saturday.

The Gunners booked their spot in the fourth round following the 3-1 victory over Brentford in their third round match on Wednesday night.

Arsenal raced into a two-goal lead in the London Derby clash in the first half courtesy a brace from England international forward Danny Welbeck.

The former Manchester United star headed the Gunners into an early lead in the 5th minute before adding a second goal eight minutes in the 37th minute following a fantastic buildup play from the home side.

Alan Judge scored the 58th-minute freekick to reduce the deficit for the Championship high-flyers and thereafter put Arsenal under pressure only for substitute Alexandre Lacazette to put the game beyond doubt with a third goal in added time.

Arsenal have therefore been assigned ball number 2 for the fourth round draw on Saturday behind fellow Premier League side Bournemouth, who will occupy ball number 1.

The trio of Blackpool, Burton Albion and Chelsea were assigned ball numbers 3,4 and 5 respectively.

Crystal Palace (ball number 6), Derby County (ball number 7), Fulham (ball number 8), Leicester City (ball number 9) and defending champions Manchester City (ball number 10) are also in the hat for the fourth round draw.

Others include Middlesbrough (ball number 11), Norwich City (ball number 12), Nottingham Forest (ball number 13), Tottenham Hotspur (ball number 14), West Ham United (ball number 15) and Everton/Southampton (ball number 16).

Fourth round ties are scheduled to take place on October 30 and 31.
