Defending champions Manchester City will face Leicester City or Southampton in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup if they defeat Fulham in the fourth round.

Pep Guardiola’s team, who beat Arsenal 3-0 in last season’s final, face newly-promoted Fulham at the Etihad on Thursday.

Chelsea, who are yet to suffer defeat in the Premier League this season under new manager Maurizio Sarri, beat Frank Lampard’s Derby County 3-2 on Wednesday.

And the Blues will now take on Bournemouth as they bid to win the League Cup for a sixth time.

Arsenal proved too strong for League One outfit Blackpool this evening, winning 2-1, to book a quarter-final meeting with north London rivals Tottenham

The four quarter-final matches will be played over the weekend beginning December 17.

The games will still be played over one leg, with the two-legged matches being played in the semi-finals.

On Chelsea drawing Bournemouth, assistant manager Gianfranco Zola said: ‘There are no easy games.

‘They did really well [against Chelsea in the Premier League] and were unlucky on a few occasions. They should have scored.’
