Flashback: Shrewsbury Town 0-1 Arsenal, 1991
Tuesday night's fixture is only the fourth meeting between these clubs, and the first in the League Cup.
The previous three matches were in the FA Cup. Arsenal won 2-0 at Highbury in a Third-Round replay in 1968 and beat Shrewsbury in a Fifth-Round tie in 1991.
That game was notable for Tony Adams' return to the Arsenal first team after missing eight matches while he served a jail sentence.
