Carabao Cup draw LIVE! Man United to host Charlton as Man City face Southampton in quarter-finals

The quarter-final lineup is set for the 2022/23 Carabao Cup. Manchester City booked their place in the last eight on Thursday night after outduelling fierce rivals Liverpool 3-2 in a thrilling affair at the Etihad Stadium, with their reward for that breathless victory coming with a trip to face familiar opponents Southampton at St Mary’s next month.

Charlton Athletic were the only non-Premier League club in the hat for the quarters and face a tough challenge against Manchester United at Old Trafford next after stunning top-flight Brighton on penalties after a goalless draw at The Valley on Wednesday evening.

Two teams currently occupying places in the Premier League’s relegation zone – Nottingham Forest and rock-bottom Wolves – will also meet at the City Ground for a place in the semi-finals of English football’s secondary domestic cup competition, with Eddie Howe’s Newcastle also hosting Leicester in a swift rematch of their next league encounter to come at the King Power Stadium on Boxing Day.

On Tuesday, Leicester eased to victory at MK Dons and there were wins over Lincoln and Bournemouth for Southampton and Newcastle respectively. Wolves are also still in the hat after seeing off lower-league Gillingham 2-0.


Kevin De Bruyne also the target for hefty Guardiola praise after another superb performance against Liverpool that included two perfect assists.


Sky evidently wanted to get interviews with both managers in before the draw.

Guardiola has just finished speaking, so we should be underway very shortly.

Pep full of praise for Rico Lewis, by the way. Fully deserved – a great performance from the 18-year-old tonight.


Liverpool injury update

Jurgen Klopp has just been talking to Sky Sports and confirms that James Milner felt his hamstring before going off in the first half, with hopes that it’s just minor.

He reveals that Trent Alexander-Arnold missed out through illness, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also struggling before yesterday.

Virgil van Dijk trained as scheduled today after his World Cup return.

Just Ibrahima Konate to come back now. He’s due at Kirkby next week.

Van Dijk, Alisson and Alexander-Arnold should all be fit to face Aston Villa on Boxing Day.
