The 2020-21 season has only lasted a few weeks but we are already approaching the final stages of the Carabao Cup with the quarter-finals in sight
In an effort to get through matches to avoid match congestion, the EFL transformed the Carabao Cup into something of a lite Champions League with matches taking place every midweek
Tottenham Hotspur, who were left bye in the fourth round after their third-round opponent Leyton Orient suffered numerous positive tests for Covid-19, are the first team to enter quarterback after beating Chelsea in the shoot to the net
Mason Mount missed the decisive kick after Harry Kane gave Tottenham a 5-4 lead in the shootout
This game took place earlier in the week due to Tottenham’s Europa League commitments on Thursday, with the remaining seven matches of the fourth round set to take place on Wednesday and Thursday
The draw for the quarter-finals will take place as soon as the fourth round match between Liverpool and Arsenal at Anfield ends on Thursday night
The game is expected to start at 7.45pm (BST) and assuming it ends on time the toss should start shortly after 9.30am unless penalties are required to separate the teams
The draw will be featured as part of Sky Sports’ coverage of Liverpool vs Arsenal, which is televised on the Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Football
Fans who do not have a Sky Sports subscription can still watch the match and the subsequent draw if they purchase a daytime broadcast pass from NowTV
The fourth round match between West London rivals Brentford and Fulham is also broadcast on Sky Sports just ahead of the Liverpool vs Arsenal game
There is bad news for those who enjoyed their midweek contribution to Carabao Cup football, as the quarter-finals will only take place just before Christmas
The four games will be spread over two days, with the first two games taking place on Tuesday September 22nd and the second lot the following day Wednesday September 23rd.
Interestingly, this season, the semi-finals will be a one-legged affair rather than the traditional two and will take place in the hat-first team stadium.
