Quarter Final Draw sees Manchester City pushed into evens for Carabao Cup



Manchester City are now evens to win the Carabao Cup after the draw for the quarter-final of the competition was made on Thursday.

The holders have been drawn away to League One outfit Oxford United, and have been made evens by Paddy Power to win the competition outright.

Pep Guardiola’s side have eased through the previous rounds, and have been afforded the luxury of being able to rest key players as they also go in search of both a Premier League and Champions League title.

They overcame Championship side Preston 3-0 in the Third Round, before beating Premier League strugglers Southampton 3-1 in the Round of 16.

Oxford meanwhile needed penalties to overcome League One rivals Sunderland after a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes.

Should City make it past Oxford, they could come up against a number of top-flight teams in the semi-final.

Their Manchester rivals have been given a home tie against Colchester United. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are currently 7/2 to win the entire competition and restore some pride at Old Trafford.

Marcus Rashford was the hero as his set-piece double helped see off Chelsea 2-1 at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

Liverpool meanwhile have been drawn away at Aston Villa after their heroics against Arsenal. Jurgen Klopp’s men can be backed at 9/2 to win their first EFL Cup since 2012.

Villa meanwhile can be backed at 20/1 to beat the Reds and win the entire competition. They remain in the tournament after a weakened side edged past Wolves 2-1.

And another all-Premier League tie completes the draw. Everton host Leicester in what looks set to be arguably the most competitive fixture of the round. The former are currently 9/1 to taste EFL Cup glory, with the latter available at 8/1.

A talented Leicester side defeated Burton to reach this stage, while the Toffees needed two late goals to knock out struggling Watford.

Man City, however, will be the team to beat. They’ve been involved in four of the last six finals, winning all four of those.

They beat Chelsea on penalties in last season’s competition to complete their domestic treble, and defeated Arsenal 3-0 in the final before that.

It’s currently 175/1 for a major shock and Oxford to win the competition. And it’s an even bigger 500/1 for League Two Colchester to bring home the Carabao Cup.

The quarter final ties are scheduled to take place the week beginning 16th December.
