When is the Carabao Cup semi-final draw and when are the matches played?

Arsenal were the first team to book their place in the Carabao Cup semi-finals on Tuesday night with three more sides joining them on Wednesday and the draw taking place on the same evening.

The in-form Gunners saw off League One Sunderland 5-1 at the Emirates, with an Eddie Nketiah hat-trick and goals from Nicolas Pepe and Charlie Patino completing the scoring.

The remaining three quarters are played on Wednesday, with Liverpool hosting Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur playing West Ham United and Brentford facing Chelsea.

With Manchester City winning five of the last six League Cups and Manchester United winning in 2017, it will not be a recent winner that lifts the trophy in February, whoever manages it.

In the cases of West Ham and Brentford it would be the first time either club has won the competition.

When is the Carabao Cup semi-final draw and how to watch it?

The draw will take place live on Sky Sports after they have shown the Tottenham vs West Ham quarter-final on Wednesday evening.

The match kicks off at 7.45pm on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Football, while the draw will also be streamed on the Carabao Cup Twitter feed.

When will the semi-finals and final be played?

The semi-finals are still scheduled to be played over two legs, in the weeks commencing 3 and 10 January. Last season they were cut to just single-leg ties due to fixture congestion caused by the pandemic.

The final will be played at Wembley on Sunday 27 February.
