The other two-legged semifinal will see Arsenal play Liverpool. The Gunners beat third-tier Sunderland on Tuesday, while the Reds needed penalties to eliminate Leicester City in a thriller on Wednesday.

The first legs will be the week of Jan. 3 with the second legs a week later (stream Carabao Cup matches on ESPN+).

A much-changed Chelsea side featuring three teenaged debutants beat west London rivals Brentford 2-0 on Wednesday to reach the semifinals. In the night’s other London derby, hosts Tottenham beat West Ham United 2-1. Goals by Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura edged Antonio Conte’s side past West Ham who had equalised through Jarrod Bowen.

Conte coached Chelsea from 2016-18 where he won the Premier League and the FA Cup. He took over at Spurs for Nuno Espirito Santo, who was sacked after a poor start to the campaign, and is trying to deliver the north London team’s first trophy since winning the League Cup in 2008.
