We think Jurgen Klopp’s main priority when it came to the EFL Cup quarterfinal draw was that we’d be playing at Anfield to avoid more travelling – but a short trip to Birmingham probably won’t cause him too many sleepless nights.
The Reds are playing Aston Villa, although at the moment, nobody knows when.
The EFL Cup quarters are currently due to take place the week we’re in Doha for the Club World Cup, but we obviously won’t be able to play then – so the FA will need to find an appropriate date that’s outside of the fortnight off every club gets at the end of January and the start of February.
Elsewhere in the draw, Manchester United host Colchester United in what’s likely an easy path to the next round, while City travel to Oxford United.
Everton host Leicester in their quest for a first trophy since 1995!
Whenever we play our game, Klopp will be fielding the kids – and any rotation players who need minutes.
CONFIRMED QUARTER-FINAL DRAW!
