The Seasiders have reached the third round stage having beaten Exeter City and Solihull Moors, the latter coming after extra time of a replay.

Terry McPhillips' men have already faced Unai Emery's men this season, bravely losing 2-1 in their last-16 Carabao Cup clash at the Emirates back in October.

The Gunners went 2-0 up thanks to goals from Stephan Lichtsteiner and Emile Smith Rowe goals, yet struggled after being reduced to 10 men after Matteo Guendouzi was shown a second yellow card.

Paudie O’Connor pulled one back for the Seasiders but the centre back was then sent off himself and Arsenal were forced to hold on with a man less to advance to the quarter-finals, where they were beaten by North London rivals Tottenham.

When does the game kick off?

The third round tie takes place at Bloomfield Road on Saturday, December 5 at the later time of 5.30pm.
