Arsenal legend David Seaman has delivered his verdict on the Gunners’ Carabao Cup victory over Leeds United in the Emirates.
Mikel Arteta’s men beat Marcelo Bielsa’s side 2-0, earning a place in the quarter-finals.
Arsenal substitute Calum Chambers scored the opening goal in the 55th minute, moments after coming on.
Former Leeds lender Eddie Nketiah then put the game out of the hands of the Whites with a second that left a few hearts in his mouth at first.
The forward passed the ball over Illan Meslier and did just enough to push it over the line before the Leeds keeper could recover.
Seaman rose through the ranks at Leeds and still has a soft spot for holding Elland Road.
Although he is happy with the way Arsenal played, he also admitted that he would have been happy “whoever won” the game:
Arsenal last won the competition in 1993, with Seaman between the sticks.
Chelsea also advanced on Tuesday night after beating Southampton on penalties.
Likewise, Sunderland came out on top after a shootout victory over Queens Park Rangers.
The remaining five matches will be played on Wednesday, October 27.
The Gunners will find their opponents in the quarterfinals in Saturday’s draw.
