Manchester City travel to Premier League rivals Southampton in the quarter-finals to continue their seventh qualification for the Carabao Cup in 10 years. Manchester City beat cup holders Liverpool 3-2 at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday in the first match between the two English football giants since the World Cup break. Shortly after, the Premier League champions were drawn to top-flight strugglers Southampton for a draw at St Mary’s Stadium in the week beginning January 9.

Meanwhile, third-tier Charlton fans can look forward to a trip to the Theater of Dreams as they beat Brighton on penalties in their last-eight tie at Old Trafford against Manchester United.

Charlton are the last non-Premier League team in the League Cup this season and the scale of the task facing the London club can be gauged by the fact that United are currently 57 places above them in the league table.

Four-time League Cup winners Nottingham Forest host Wolves, who lifted the trophy twice in the Midlands derby.

Newcastle, top of the Premier League in their last quarter-final, welcome three-time League Cup winners Leicester City at St James’ Park.

All four games will be played in the week beginning January 9.
