Carabao Cup draw LIVE: Updates and fourth round fixtures
Manchester City are also in the draw having won the last four editions of the competition

The Carabao Cup third round is all but complete and immediately after Wednesday night’s matches finish, the draw for the fourth round will take place.

On Tuesday, three of the matches went to penalties as QPR knocked out Premier League side Everton and Stoke shocked Watford at Vicarage Road, while there were big wins for top-flight sides Brentford and Man City over lower-league opponents. Liverpool saw off Norwich in the most notable of the all-Premier League clashes, meanwhile. Most sides will want to avoid Pep Guardiola’s reigning champions, given they have won four straight EFL Cup trophies and are aiming for a record-breaking fifth in succession this year – but plenty of rivals who are seeking silverware remain in the competition and will fancy their chances of going all the way this time around.

The fourth round fixtures are currently scheduled to take place in late October, a couple of weeks after the upcoming international break, with the quarters then set to follow in December, the semi-finals across two legs in January and the final itself at Wembley at the end of February 2022. To get that far, however, favourable draws and victories this side of Christmas will be the focus.

Teams in the draw:

  • Brentford
  • Burnley
  • Leeds
  • Man City
  • Liverpool
  • Preston
  • QPR
  • Southampton
  • Stoke
  • Sunderland
  • Brighton/Swansea
  • Arsenal/AFC Wimbledon
  • Chelsea/Aston Villa
  • Man United/West Ham
  • Millwall/Leicester
  • Wolves/Tottenham

Follow all the latest updates from the Carabao Cup fourth round draw after the end of the Man United vs West Ham match below:


Man Utd 0 – 1 West Ham

66 mins: Chance! The momentum may be swinging Man Utd’s way. Greenwood wins the ball by pressing high and slots it across to Lingard. The pass is a little heavy so Lingard hits a first time shot from outside the box when he gets to it. The connection is good but effort comes straight to Areola in goal.

Man Utd 0 – 1 West Ham

63 mins: Save! Immediately Greenwood makes things happen. Van de Beek chips the ball into the box from the right as Greenwood makes the run from deep. He sprints between Diop and Dawson, brings the ball down and guides it to the goalkeeper’s right but Areola drops low and somehow keeps it out!

Man Utd 0 – 1 West Ham

60 mins: Noble needs to be careful. He hands off Bailly whilst in possession and the Utd defender makes a meal of it clutching his face as he goes down. Man Utd are awarded a free kick but Noble gets away without another booking.

Mason Greenwood comes on to replace Juan Mata.

Man Utd 0 – 1 West Ham

57 mins: Mark Noble has used up his length of rope. Sancho deftly flicks the ball around him and looks to drive forward through the middle but Noble tugs him back and knocks him over. Jon Moss’s whistle goes and out comes a yellow card for West Ham’s captain.

Man Utd 0 – 1 West Ham

54 mins: Manchester United are using more runners from deeper positions. It’s opening up gaps in the West Ham defence but the final passes haven’t yet been clinical enough.

Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes are warming up for the home team.

Man Utd 0 – 1 West Ham

51 mins: Chance! Jadon Sancho comes close to opening his account for Man Utd. Mata flicks a dainty pass over the top and Sancho matches it with a good run off the ball. He hits the dropping ball on the volley but has to twist to work it back towards goal and the effort just goes over the crossbar. It would’ve been some goal that one.

Man Utd 0 – 1 West Ham

48 mins: West Ham have a lot of men behind the ball. Man Utd hit them on the counter-attack but Issa Diop whips the ball off Lingard. It rolls out to Van de Beek who quickly knocks it up to Sancho on the left side. He shimmies to the right and shoots but there’s three defenders in front of him and the shot is blocked.

Man Utd 0 – 1 West Ham

Second half: Manchester United restart the game and work the ball down the left. Sancho runs it inside but gives the ball away with a wayward pass towards Dalot. Masuaku intercepts but he’s tackled immediately by Mata who then plays a poor pass into the box for Lingard which is cleared by Dawson.

The Carabao Cup fourth round

The draw for the fourth round of the Carabao Cup will take place after the conclusion of this game and we’ll be following it live. Here’s a look at the all the teams left in the competition:

Brentford, Burnley, Leeds, Man City, Liverpool, Preston, QPR, Southampton, Stoke, Sunderland, Brighton/Swansea, Arsenal/AFC Wimbledon, Chelsea/Aston Villa, Man United/West Ham, Millwall/Leicester, Wolves/Tottenham.

Man Utd 0 – 1 West Ham

Manchester United have had more possession (62%) and more shots (13) but it feels as though West Ham have done more with the ball. Obviously they’ve scored a goal but they’ve created better chances around the box.

That said Man Utd should probably have had a penalty. Mark Noble pulled Jesse Lingard to the floor in his own penalty area but Jon Moss played on and VAR isn’t in action tonight to overturn it.
