Thomas Eisfeld says Arsenal won’t make the mistake of underestimating Bradford City in Tuesday night’s Capital One Cup quarter-final.

Phil Parkinson’s side have started the League Two season promisingly, and defeated Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium in the last round of the tournament.

After an impressive cameo against Reading in the last 16, Eisfeld is hoping to play some part in the fixture, and insists Arsenal must be at their best at the Coral Windows Stadium if they are to progress.

“I heard they beat Wigan in the last round, so it should be hard if they’ve beaten a Premier League team,” Eisfeld told Arsenal Player.

“In Germany we say that cup games have their own rules, because anyone can beat anyone.

“At the moment, I’m very happy. I don’t know what the coaches think. Of course I hope I get the chance to play in the game, it would make me really pleased.”
