Manchester Derby within the semi-finals; Spurs versus Brentford


Manchester United will welcome Manchester City to the Carabao Cup semi-finals at Old Trafford while Championship Brentford travels to Tottenham.

In the other game there will be a London derby, in which Brentford will go to the first major semi-finals at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The semi-finals usually consist of two legs, but will only be played over one game in the week from January 4th.

The final was originally scheduled for February 28, but will now take place on April 25 at Wembley.

The EFL said, "The league's goal is to have the final with as many supporters as possible, so it has been decided to postpone the final from its original date."

The Manchester clubs have won the last five finals. United's 3-2 win over Southampton in 2017 interrupted a dominance of the city.
