EFL Cup

Defending champions Manchester City will travel to West Ham in the EFL Cup fourth round, while Arsenal host Leeds United.

Pep Guardiola’s side came from a goal down to thump Wycombe Wanderers 6-1 on Tuesday night, ensuring their hopes of winning the trophy for a fifth season running remained intact.

Liverpool, who share the record for the most EFL Cup titles (8) with City, were handed an away draw versus Championship outfit Preston as the remaining 16 teams were drawn out of the hat shortly after the fixture was drawn.

However, West Ham bounced back from their recent Premier League defeat to Manchester United to secure a hard-fought 1-0 victory at Old Trafford and David Moyes’ Irons will host the reigning champions in the next round.

Chelsea, meanwhile, will do battle with Southampton at Stamford Bridge for a place in the quarter finals after seeing off Aston Villa on penalties, while Mikel Arsenal were drawn against Leeds following their 3-0 victory over AFC Wimbledon.

Tottenham will clash with Burnley at Turf Moor following their penalty shootout defeat of Wolves and Leicester will play host to Brighton after they ran out 2-0 winners away to Millwall. Elsewhere, Stoke City and Brentford were paired against each other, while QPR prepare to welcome League One Sunderland to Loftus Road. The fourth round of the Carabao Cup is scheduled to take place across the week commencing on October 25.
