League Cup fourth-round draw throws up mouth-watering clashes

League Cup fourth-round draw, which took place on Wednesday night, has thrown up some very exciting ties.

In the most exciting tie of the round, Manchester clubs will face each other for the second time at Old Trafford this season. City have already defeated United 2-1 in the league this season.

In another eye-catching tie, last year’s runner-up Liverpool will host Tottenham at Anfield. There is also a London derby on the cards, as Chelsea will travel to London Stadium to take on West Ham United.

North London club Arsenal have been handed a relatively easy tie as compared to their Premier League counterparts. They will host Championship club Reading City at Emirates Stadium.

Hull City, who defeated Stoke City in the third round, will travel to Championship club Bristol City. Sunderland will travel across the length of the country to face South coast club Southampton.

The draw has also thrown two all-Championship ties. Leeds United will host Norwich City at Elland Road while Newcastle United will host Preston North End.

All the games will be played during the week starting from October 24.
