Carabao Cup trophy

United learn last-eight Carabao Cup opponents

Thursday 01 October 2020 22:12

Manchester United's next opponents in the 2020/21 Carabao Cup have been confirmed, following the draw for the quarter-finals.

The Reds will meet Everton away at Goodison Park in the week commencing 21 December.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side secured a place in the last eight of the competition with Wednesday's 3-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium.
Although our two games so far in the Carabao Cup were separated by just seven days, the quarter-finals will not be played until just before Christmas.
United reached the quarter-finals thanks to a 3-0 win over Brighton, with Juan Mata our standout performer.
The Everton tie comes at a busy period, and will be sandwiched between a reunion with old rivals Leeds United at Old Trafford - provisionally scheduled for 19 December - and a trip to Leicester City on Boxing Day, both in the Premier League.

It will be only the fourth time the Reds and the Toffees have met in the League Cup and the record so far could be a good omen, given the away team has won on every occasion. The Merseysiders won 3-0 at Old Trafford in 1976, and triumphed 2-1 there eight years later; United claimed a 2-0 victory at Goodison Park in 1993, thanks to goals from Mark Hughes and Ryan Giggs.
We have now reached the quarter-finals of the competition 22 times, going on to win the trophy on five occasions (1992, 2006, 2009, 2010 and 2017) and finishing as runners-up in four other finals (1983, 1991, 1994 and 2003).

Our most recent game at this stage came last season, when we beat Colchester United 3-0 to progress to the semi-finals for the 16th time in our history.
