Manchester City fullback Gael Clichy has warned teammates to be wary of Arsenal's young guns in tonight's Carling Cup quarterfinal.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will field a team of youngsters tonight. But Clichy has warned his City team-mates they will not have it easy.

He said: "Arsene will play his young players but they'll always be Arsenal. I remember nine years ago the boss played the young players and we went right through to the semi-finals.

"We shouldn't think we will win the game easily just because they are fielding a young team.

"They have emerging talent but it's a quarter-final so we have to make sure that we win."
