‘Good draw’, ‘Basically our academy players vs us’ – Man City fans react to Carabao Cup quarter-final draw

The draw for the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup has been made after Manchester City became the last team to book their spot in the last eight on Thursday night thanks to a fine win over Liverpool.

Seven Premier League clubs are involved in the final eight, with just League One’s Charlton representing the Football League, after they stunned Brighton on Wednesday evening.

Plenty of big teams have already fallen, with the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and now Liverpool out of the competition, with the Reds falling to City on Thursday, losing 3-2 at the Etihad.

There is till plenty to look forward to in the quarter-final draw, though, with the question being, as it is almost every season: who can stop Man City in this competition?
