What's coming up in the Carabao Cup Quarter-Finals?

22 December 2021

The Wembley arch is almost in sight as eight teams compete in the Carabao Cup Quarter Finals this week for a place in the Semi-Final.

Round Four provided plenty of drama, including West Ham United ending Manchester City’s 1,827-day reign in the competition and here’s to hoping for more of the same in the Quarter Final...

The action kicks off tonight at the Emirates, as two-time winners Arsenal welcome the last EFL side remaining in the competition, Sunderland. After overcoming fellow Premier League side Leeds United in Round Four, the Gunners will be hoping to add to that with victory over the Black Cats.

As for Lee Johnson's men, the Quarter-Final brings another trip to London, having come out on top in a penalty shoot-out in Round Four at Queens Park Rangers to secure their place in the draw for the next round.

The three remaining fixtures in the Quarter-Final of the Carabao Cup are all due to kick off at 19:45 on Wednesday evening.

There’s a West London derby as Chelsea make the short trip to Brentford. The Bees' route to the Quarter-Final includes a 2-1 victory away at Stoke City in Round Four. Chelsea, on the other hand, have had to see off the likes of Aston Villa and Southampton to reach the last eight. Could this be Brentford's toughest test yet in the competition?

Elsewhere in the capital on Wednesday night, Tottenham Hotspur take on West Ham. The Quarter-Final will mark the first match that the hosts have played on home soil in this season’s competition, securing victories away at Burnley and Wolverhampton Wanderers to reach this stage.

West Ham arguably pulled off the biggest shock in Round Four, defeating four-time consecutive Carabao Cup winners Manchester City on penalties to do the double over the Manchester duo, having overcome Manchester United in Round Three. And the Hammers will no doubt come into this match on a high.

The final match of the Quarter-Final takes place on Merseyside as Liverpool entertain Leicester City at Anfield.

This season presents an opportunity for Liverpool - the joint record eight-time holders of the Carabao Cup, level only with Manchester City - to claim that record. Liverpool have come out on top against Norwich City and Preston North End so far in the competition, with the Reds yet to concede a goal.

It took victory on penalties over Brighton and Hove Albion in the last round for Leicester City to earn a Quarter-Final tie in the Carabao Cup. And the Foxes themselves also have history in the competition, having won the Carabao Cup three times in their existence - their last time as champions being in 2000.
