For the second straight season Man City head to Leicester for the quarterfinal, with Pep Guardiola‘s men beating the Foxes on penalty kicks last season on their way to a 3-0 win in the final against Arsenal. With Claude Puel under pressure after recent results, Leicester need a big win to reach the final four and inject new life into their 2018-19 campaign.

City have a strong starting lineup as both Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero start after time spent on the sidelines through injury, while Riyad Mahrez returns to play against his former club. Leicester have also named a strong team with Harry Maguire, Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfried Ndidi all starting.

Elsewhere, Middlesbrough is heavily favored against third-tier Burton Albion as Tony Pulis‘ side are the hosts and will look to build from their solid start to the Championship season. Boro currently sit sixth in the second-tier table after a run of four games without a win, while Nigel Clough (a two-time League Cup winner as a player at Nottingham Forest) and Burton are 15th in League One.

Both games kick off at 2:45 p.m. ET.
