Carabao Cup quarter-final draw throws up two London derbies with new winners guaranteed

Tottenham and West Ham will renew their London rivalry in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup as both sides set eyes on a semi-final place.

The two clubs met in the Premier League only last weekend, with West Ham running out 1-0 winners before going on to end Manchester City’s run of four-straight Carabao Cup successes thanks to a penalty shootout win in midweek.

Chelsea also face a London derby as they host Brentford at Stamford Bridge, with the Bees looking to reach a second successive semi-final, having made the last four as a Championship club last season.

While Thomas Frank’s side beat second tier Stoke to reach the last eight, Chelsea needed penalties for the second round in a row as they overcame Southampton, having taken care of Aston Villa on penalties in round three.

Arsenal will be the happiest of London’s clubs with their quarter-final draw as they face the only non-Premier League team left in the competition, Sunderland, who knocked out QPR in a shootout this week

The fourth and final tie sees Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side host Leicester City at Anfield. The ties will all be played in the week starting December 20.
