Manchester City’s stranglehold over the Carabao Cup has finally been broken after West Ham defeated Pep Guardiola’s side on penalties at the London Stadium.
It means, after four successive years of City dominance, a new winner will be crowned in February and plenty of sides in the quarter-final draw will feel confident of their chances.
Arsenal brushed aside Leeds to secure their place in the last-eight, with Mikel Arteta looking to lift his second trophy as a head coach, and are now unbeaten in their last eight matches in all competitions. Chelsea required penalties to edge past Southampton but have been in imperious form since lifting the Champions League last summer and currently top the Premier League table.
Sunderland are the weakest side left in the draw after edging QPR on penalties, while Liverpool and Tottenham saw off Preston and Burnley respectively. Brentford are through, too, having held off a late fightback at Stoke, while Leicester were twice pegged back by Brighton in normal time but came out victorious in the shootout.
Here is everything you need to know ahead of the draw.
