So here’s the draw in full:

Chelsea vs Newcastle

Port Vale vs Middlesbrough

Liverpool vs West Ham

Carabao Cup quarter-final draw

23:12 , Ben Fleming

Another tough draw for Newcastle who have already got past Manchester City and Manchester United to reach this stage of the competition. Given their current form, they will fancy their chances, though.

Fulham got a 1-0 win at Goodison Park earlier in the season and will be hoping for a repeat performance in the quarter-finals.

West Ham delivered a superb performance to win for the first time against Arsenal since 2019. They are winless in their last four games against Jurgen Klopp’s side so will need another inspired performance.

And what a chance for Championship Middlesbrough and League One Port Vale. We’re guaranteed to have a non-Premier League team in the final four which will be some feat for the victorious side.

A reminder that those games will be played week commencing the 18th of December.

Manchester United given humbling look at how far they’ve fallen as Newcastle finally win at Old Trafford

22:39 , Ben Fleming

So much for Erik ten Hag’s belief that Manchester United are heading in the right direction. They instead veered out of the Carabao Cup, the defence of their first trophy in six years ending swifty and ignominiously, as their season goes off the rails. Given their wretched form, this scarcely counted as a cup shock but United were shocking nonetheless. Newcastle did not advance into the quarter-finals as much as storm into them.

The fans who saw their side beaten by the other United at Wembley in last season’s final chorused about a return to the national stadium. More often, however, they serenaded Ten Hag with chants of “sacked in the morning”. And if the Newcastle supporters are scarcely impartial and their predictions will be unfounded, it was nevertheless the sound of crisis enveloping Old Trafford.

Manchester United were abysmal, even by their own standards. Caught in possession for Newcastle’s first and third, Ten Hag’s £400m starting 11 were outrun, outworked, out-passed and outclassed. They looked an insipid assortment of individuals, Newcastle a team far greater than the sum of some relatively limited parts. They nevertheless displayed the characteristics, the work ethic and unity, the counter-attacking verve and the defensive resilience, so sadly lacking in their hosts.

Ipswich Town 1-3 Fulham

22:22 , Ben Fleming

Fulham eased through to the Carabao Cup quarter-finals for the first time since 2004 with a 3-1 win at Ipswich.

Marco Silva’s team were up against a Town outfit that had only lost once since their promotion to the Sky Bet Championship in April, but the Premier League side showed their class in Suffolk.

Harry Wilson provided the breakthrough for Fulham in the ninth minute with a cool finish and Muniz grabbed his first goal for the club in 19 months early into the second period to put the London outfit in control.

Tom Cairney confirmed Fulham’s win with a third in the 77th minute and, while Elkan Baggott reduced the deficit late on, Kieran McKenna’s Championship promotion hopefuls suffered a rare defeat in front of a packed Portman Road crowd.

Manchester United 0-3 Newcastle United

22:19 , Ben Fleming

Manchester United are out of the Carabao Cup. Their trophy defence comes to an end at the fourth round stage as they were hammered by last year’s finalists Newcastle who put three goals past Andre Onana to secure their first win at Old Trafford in a decade.

The home side started off well enough, they controlled possession and took the first shot of the match but Newcastle slowly built their way into the game and began to control the midfield.

Miguel Almiron, introduced early due to an injury to Matt Targett, slotted the visitors ahead and they never looked back. Lewis Hall drilled in a volley to double their lead before Joe Willock nestled a side-footed effort home after the half-time break.

Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth

22:15 , Ben Fleming

Substitute Darwin Nunez fired Liverpool into the Carabao Cup quarter-finals with a stunning second-half winner in a 2-1 success over Bournemouth at a blustery Vitality Stadium.

The in-form Uruguay forward had been on the pitch for just 10 minutes when he collected a pass from fellow replacement Trent Alexander-Arnold and unleashed a thunderous finish into the top right corner.

Cody Gakpo gave Jurgen Klopp’s much-changed visitors a first-half lead before Justin Kluivert’s maiden Cherries goal levelled proceedings amid treacherous conditions caused by Storm Ciaran.

Parity lasted just six minutes as Nunez’s third goal in as many games emphatically earned the nine-time winners a place in the last eight to ensure an entertaining fourth-round tie would not be settled by the jeopardy of a penalty shoot-out.

Chelsea 2-0 Blackburn Rovers

22:11 , Ben Fleming

Benoit Badiashile scored the opening goal as he made his first appearance of the season in Chelsea’s 2-0 Carabao Cup victory over Blackburn at Stamford Bridge.

The France defender had not started a Blues match since he was injured in their draw with Nottingham Forest in May and got himself involved at both ends of the pitch in a game that also saw Reece James return to the starting XI.

Raheem Sterling fired home after the break, and while the visitors had defended well, they never looked close to coming back into the contest.

Chelsea have now reached their 24th quarter-final in 33 attempts, and are one step closer to lifting a first League Cup since 2015, when Blues boss Mauricio Pochettino was in charge of runners-up Tottenham.

West Ham 3-1 Arsenal

22:08 , Ben Fleming

West Ham welcomed Declan Rice back to the London Stadium and then promptly sent him and Arsenal packing on the end of a 3-1 Carabao Cup defeat.

Rice, who lifted the Europa Conference League trophy as Hammers captain last season, was back at his old club for the first time since his £105million switch to the Gunners.

But he will not be getting his hands on the Carabao Cup this season after strikes from Mohammed Kudus and Jarrod Bowen, following an early own goal by Ben White, sent the north Londoners crashing out.
