Carabao Cup draw LIVE: Liverpool face Man City in fourth round as Manchester United host Burnley

Carabao Cup holders Liverpool will face Premier League champions Manchester City in the fourth round, with the match set to be played within days of the World Cup final.

Liverpool won last season’s tournament by beating Chelsea on penalties, ending a run of four years in a row in which Pep Guardiola’s side lifted the Carabao Cup trophy.

City and Liverpool played out a fractious clash at Anfield earlier this season following last campaign’s title battle and their latest meeting was the pick of the fourth-round ties.

Elesewhere, Newcastle drew Bournemouth at home while Manchester United will play Vincent Kompany’s Burnley. Gillingham, the lowest ranked team still in the draw, will play Wolves away from home in what will be Julen Lopetegui’s first match in charge.

The next stage of the competition takes place following the World Cup final and before the return of the Premier League - on December 20 and 21.

It’s already been a big day of football news with Gareth Southgate’s England squad announcement for the World Cup. The headline inclusion was that of James Maddison and although it has been a considered decision from Southgate, it’s one that comes with a risk, too.

Here’s Mark Critchley’s analysis of the England squad:

Erik ten Hag, speaking to Sky Sports: “Two halves, never the same! It’s true. But first half we controlled the game by good pressing, but we then did the wrong things in transition. We missed a lot of opportunities and we were sloppy on the ball. At half time we said keep the pressing, but be more direct. We fought back and I’m proud of the team that they could do that after Sunday’s defeat.

“It’s a quick game, it’s an intense game. We have made a step in the right direction but we need to find the moments where we can have more composure. But we have a long way to go. Of course, we now have time to reflect and see where we can improve.”

Frank Lampard admitted Everton’s fringe players had come up short after being sent crashing out of the Carabao Cup at Bournemouth.

Lampard defended his decision to make eleven changes as the Toffees’ hopes of moving a step closer to winning their first trophy since 1995 were dashed with a 4-1 third round defeat in Dorset.

Manchester United may not see it as revenge for Sunday, let alone 2021’s Europa League final defeat, but they found a way of overcoming Unai Emery.

A prowess in knockout competitions helped give the quadruple Europa League winner such appeal to Aston Villa that they appointed him but their first defeat under the Spaniard came against a club who can testify to his excellence.

Emery’s Villarreal are a major reason why United have not lifted a trophy since 2017 but Villa have gone 26 years without winning silverware and, four days after his first game, the Spaniard cannot claim the Carabao Cup this season after a night of fluctuating emotions.

In a game of two halves, a subdued first followed by a stunning second, Villa led twice but succumbed to a familiar tormentor.

Boubacar Traore’s late winner sent Wolves through to the last 16 of the Carabao Cup.

The substitute struck with five minutes left to down much-changed Leeds and seal a 1-0 victory for the hosts.

It settled an uneventful game which looked to be heading to penalties and gave new Wolves boss Julen Lopetegui and his coaches food for thought.

Lopetegui is due at the club’s Compton training base on Friday, ahead of watching Saturday’s visit of Arsenal, before officially taking charge on Monday.

The former Spain manager’s lieutenants were at Molineux having already briefly introduced themselves to the squad and they would have been concerned and encouraged in equal measure early on.

Mikel Arteta admits Arsenal could add to their “short squad” in the January transfer window after his much-changed side slumped to Carabao Cup defeat to Brighton.

The Gunners showed 10 changes from their weekend win at Chelsea which took them back to the top of the Premier League as Brighton left the Emirates Stadium with a 3-1 win.

Eddie Nketiah opened the scoring for the hosts with his 11th goal in 12 Carabao Cup outings, but Brighton stormed back.

Danny Welbeck levelled from the penalty spot after the former Arsenal man had been fouled by Gunners debutant Karl Hein, the Estonia goalkeeper slipping over before jumping back to his feet just in time to trip Welbeck.

Kaoru Mitoma and Tariq Lamptey scored on the break to send Brighton through as Arteta’s call for the cavalry – Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Martinelli, Gabriel Magalhaes, Granit Xhaka and Oleksandr Zinchenko all coming off the bench – failed to rouse a response.

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe backed goalkeeper Nick Pope’s World Cup claims after witnessing his penalty shoot-out heroics as England boss Gareth Southgate prepared to name his squad.

The 30-year-old, a £10million summer signing from Burnley, saved spot-kicks from Luka Milivojevic, Jean-Philippe Mateta and Malcolm Ebiowei as the Magpies progressed to the last 16 in the Carabao Cup courtesy of a 3-2 shoot-out win after the 90 minutes at St James’ Park had ended goalless.

Pope is widely expected to be included in Southgate’s squad when it is announced on Thursday, and his performance will not have gone unnoticed after he also produced a fine first-half stop to deny Mateta.

Jesse Lingard admits he has underwhelmed at Nottingham Forest so far, but wants his first goal to kick-start his City Ground career.

The former England international had not scored or assisted in his opening 12 games following his surprise summer free transfer after leaving Manchester United and has spent plenty of time on the bench as Forest have endured a tough start to their Premier League return.

But he put that right against Tottenham in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, setting up Renan Lodi for the opener and then nodding home as Forest secured a 2-0 win.
