Tottenham Hotspur will meet Chelsea in one of five all-Premier League ties in next week’s fourth round of the League Cup.

Spurs were handed a bye into the round after Leyton Orient players tested positive for COVID-19 and Tuesday’s third-round match was unable to go forward.

The all-London draw kicks off the fourth round as the only Tuesday fixture, one of eight meetings that run through Thursday’s 2:45 pm ET scrap between Liverpool and Arsenal.

That’s another subplot of this round, as Liverpool-Arsenal and Brighton-Manchester United are fixtures in this weekend’s Premier League, too.

There are three non-Premier League entrants in this round. League Two side Newport County meets Newcastle, while Championshp sides Brentford and Stoke City play Fulham and Aston Villa, respectively.
