Which teams are in the Carabao Cup quarterfinals?
There are seven Premier League clubs left standing and only one lower division side in League One club Sunderland. Four of the eight quarterfinalists needed a penalty-kick shootout to this stage.
The quarterfinal matches will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 21 or Wednesday, Dec. 22.
|West Ham||Premier League|
|Leicester City||Premier League|
London sides Chelsea and Arsenal knocked off Premier League opposition to advance to the final eight, though Chelsea needed penalty kicks to oust Southampton. Arsenal made tidy work of Leeds United with a 2-0 win at the Emirates.
League One club Sunderland survived against Championship side QPR, also on penalty kicks. The Black Cats will have their work cut out for them in the quarterfinal stage when they travel to face Arsenal.
Liverpool, Brentford and Tottenham all won outright on the road against their Round of 16 opponents. But Leicester City and West Ham United needed a penalty-kick shootout to get past their Premier League foes.
West Ham eliminated four-time defending title holders Manchester City, which means we’ll have a new team hoisting the trophy in 2022.
