The sides have met twice since then, with Arsenal exacting revenge for a 3-0 Premier League defeat towards the end of last season with a 2-0 win in the 2019-20 FA Cup semi-finals.
"I was enjoying the victory in the dressing room and I got the news," Arteta said in his post-match press conference.
"Another massive challenge for us but we're not getting very lucky with the draws at the moment. But we'll prepare for the game and try to win, of course."
Brentford are the other second-tier side remaining and host Newcastle United – penalty shoot-out winners against Newport County on Wednesday – for a place in the semi-finals. Brentford reached the last eight for the first time in their history thanks to a 3-0 win over Fulham.
The quarter-finalties will be contested over one leg on the week commencing December 21.
