Here's a look at the full Quarter-Final schedule, with all matches kicking off at 7.45pm:

Tuesday 1st December

Manchester City v Hull City
Middlesbrough v Everton (live on Sky Sports)
Stoke City v Sheffield Wednesday

Wednesday 2nd December

Southampton v Liverpool (live on Sky Sports)

Sky Bet Championship Boro sealed their place in the last eight with a historic 3-1 penalty shoot-out win at Manchester United, while the Toffees also needed penalties, after a 1-1 draw with Norwich City over 120 minutes.

The pair will be renewing acquaintances for the first time since 2009, with Everton currently riding a six-game unbeaten run against Middlesbrough.

Boro's Championship rivals Hull City, and Sheffield Wednesday, are also in action on Tuesday, visiting Premier League duo Manchester City and Stoke City respectively.

While Hull are going well in The Football League, Manchester City are riding high in the Premier League, sitting top, which should make for an interesting match-up at the Etihad.

Although they haven't met since 2008, Sheffield Wednesday and Stoke are familiar opponents as the pair have played each other 89 times over the years. It's the Owls who lead the historical head-to-head record, with 37 victories to Stoke's 31, alongside 21 draws.

On Wednesday, eight-time League Cup winners go up against Southampton in another tie being screened live on Sky Sports. The pair have already clashed in the top flight this term, sharing the spoils in a 1-1 draw, but they haven't met in the League Cup since 2002, when the Reds ran out 3-1 winners.
