Carabao Cup draw LIVE: Semi-final ties revealed as Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham bid to join Arsenal

The Carabao Cup semi-final draw will take tonight following the conclusion of the three remaining quarter-final ties.

Arsenal have already progressed into the last four of the competition after Eddie Nketiah starred with a clinical hat-trick in a 5-1 thrashing of League One Sunderland. That result ensured that only Premier League sides remain in competition, although we are already guaranteed to see a new winner crowned after Manchester City’s four-year stranglehold was finally brought to an end by West Ham in the fourth round.

The Hammers travel to Tottenham in one of two London derbies tonight, with a heavily-depleted Chelsea side visiting Brentford. The final tie sees Liverpool host Leicester with managers having to juggle their priorities carefully between player welfare and the chance of claiming a piece of silverware at such a chaotic and uncertain time of the season. Follow the draw live below at the conclusion of Liverpool vs Leicester:

51 mins: Milner fouls Daka as the Leicester striker wins an aerial ball. The Foxes are awarded a free kick that is slid into the left side of the box for Daka to chase down but he’s beaten to it by one of Liverpool’s defenders, Gomez I think, and the Reds work the ball out of the box.

48 mins: Neco Williams has dropped back to right-back with Diogo Jota taking up the spot on Liverpool’s right wing. Klopp is giving it a go with those substitutions but Liverpool will have to score the next goal. It’ll set up an interesting finish this game if they do.

Williams carries the ball down the right wing but is tackled by Dewsbury-Hall who knocks the ball out for a throw in.

Second half: Liverpool 1 – 3 Leicester

Kick off: Liverpool get the game back underway with three changes made by Jurgen Klopp. James Milner, Ibrahima Konate and Diogo Jota are all on with Conor Bradley, Billy Koumetio, and Tyler Morton the men replaced.
