There will be a new name on the Carabao Cup this season but will it be a first time winner? Brentford, Sunderland and West Ham have never won the competition but will certainly fancy their chances with just three knockout games left.

But they will be hoping for a favourable draw if they are to go all the way. Draw to take place in five or so minutes.

REPORT: Re-live how the Hammers dumped out holders City in midweek

ADRIAN KAJUMBA AT THE LONDON STADIUM: There will be a new name on the Carabao Cup for the first time since 2018 thanks to West Ham. And the way their season is going, why can’t it be them?

Fourth in the league, one foot already in the Europa League last-16 and now a place in the League Cup quarter finals after becoming the first side to win a tie against Manchester City in this competition for five years.

West Ham won at Old Trafford in the previous round too so nobody would argue they fully deserve their spot in the last eight too.
