Arsenal made it into the League Cup quarter-final with a win over Leeds United on Tuesday night, but when is the quarter-final draw?
On Tuesday, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Sunderland booked their places in the quarter-finals of the League Cup. There are five further fixtures to be played on Wednesday night to decide the rest of the quarter-finalists, but the draw won’t take place on Wednesday.
The EFL have confirmed that the League Cup quarter-final draw will take place on Saturday, 30th October at 10:30am BST, so we face a bit of a longer wait than usual.
As for how to watch the draw, it’s on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Football on the Soccer AM programme. John Fendley will be presenting the draw, with Jimmy Bullard and Danny Mays picking the balls out of the bag.
The remaining five fixtures (all to take place at 19:45 BST on Wednesday night) to determine the rest of the teams in the draw are as follows:
- Burnley vs Tottenham Hotspur
- Leicester City vs Brighton & Hove Albion
- Preston North End vs Liverpool
- Stoke City vs Brentford
- West Ham United vs Manchester City
As a result, it’s very possible we end up with all five of the big-six clubs in the last-16 making it through to the next round. If that’s the case, we’ll end up with at least two of them playing each other in the quarter-finals.
After the results of the draw, the ties will be played on December 21st-22nd.
