The draw took place immediately after the the Gunners booked their place in the last eight of the competition by beating Liverpool on penalties on Thursday night. Things do not get any easier for Arsenal in the next round, with current champions City set to offer them another stern test.
The game will see Gunner boss Mikel Arteta lock horns with Pep Guardiola, the man he previously served as assistant manager.
Stoke City, who secured passage to the last eight with a 1-0 win over Aston Villa, have been rewarded with a game against Tottenham. The Potters also defeated Wolves in the second round and will be hoping to secure a third Premier League giant killing to book themselves a place in the semi finals.
Meanwhile, Brentford, who defeated Fulham to get this far, will host Newcastle. The Magpies have not won a major honour in decades and against second tier opposition will fancy their chances of progressing into the final four.
Here is the draw in full:
Stoke City vs Tottenham Hotspur
Brentford vs Newcastle
Arsenal vs Manchester City
Everton vs Manchester United
The ties will not be played for some time with the current schedule pencilling them in for just before Christmas. The current holders of the Carabao Cup are City, who defeated Aston Villa 2-1 in 2019/20's final back in March.
