Carabao Cup semifinal will be action-packed after all favourites for the title have avoided each other in the quarterfinal.
The quarterfinal draw was released on Thursday, October 31, with five-time winners Manchester United set to face League Two side Colchester United on December 16.
Quite notably, Colchester might not be a pushover as plaudits would imagine as they have already knocked out two Premier League sides – Tottenham and Crystal Palace en route to the quarters.
United’s rivals Manchester City have been drawn against League One side Oxford FC; while an all-Premier League quarterfinal fixture will see Everton face in-form Leicester City with Iwobi set to come up against his Nigerian brothers - Ndidi and Iheanacho.
Liverpool, who knocked out Arsenal following a 5-4 penalty win after 5-5 draw at full time, will face another Premier League side Aston Villa at Villa Park
All the ties will be played in the week commencing December 16.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Liverpool's future in the Carabao is in doubt due to their involvement in the club World Cup.
Jurgen Klopp’s men play the Club World Cup semi-final in Qatar on December 18, with the final and third place playoff being played days later.
According to Klopp, their opponents Aston Villa will be handed the automatic progression if the FA is unable to fund a suitable date for the fixture.
