Liverpool draw Leeds in EFL Cup quarter-finals as Arsenal host Southampton


The draw for the quarter finals of the EFL Cup has been made, with Liverpool hosting Leeds United in the tie of the round.




The round of 16 came to an end last evening, with wins for Arsenal, Hull City, Leeds United, Liverpool, Manchester United, Newcastle United, Southampton and West Ham United this week.

Last season's winners Manchester City are out after a defeat away at fierce rivals Manchester United, meaning a fresh name will be on the trophy this time around.
