The draw for the eight remaining teams in — six of which come from the Premier League, with two EFL Championship sides still punching above their weight — was held on Thursday following the completion of the round of 16.

Elsewhere in the League Cup draw, Man United were informed they would be making a rather tricky trip to Goodison Park to take on top-six hopefuls Everton. Tottenham Hotspur will also be away from home, to second-tier Stoke City. Newcastle United will visit the other Championship side to reach the quarterfinals, Brentford.
