Arsenal v Manchester City is the pick of the quarter final draw in the Carling Cup where Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy get braced for their first game against their former club. Nasri can expect a warm reception to say the least; such was the nature of his move to the Etihad Stadium.
Elsewhere Fernando Torres and Raul Meireles get the chance to face off against their former employers, while in-form Crystal Palace get a money spinning tie at Old Trafford.
