The draw for the Carabao Cup quarter finals was made last night, and the four fixtures can be seen below:

Arsenal vs Tottenham

Chelsea vs Bournemouth

Middlesbrough vs Burton

Leicester or Southampton vs Manchester City or Fulham

The stand out tie in the draw is obviously the one at the top, which sees North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham take each other on for a place in the semi finals. Chelsea will fancy their chances of making it through, while Middlesbrough have been handed a draw that could see the Championship team get through to the next round. Burton will be no pushovers though, they have already beaten Nottingham Forest of the Championship in the last round.

Manchester City play against Fulham tonight looking to book their place in the quarter finals, and they will travel to face Leicester or Southampton, with a date for that fixture still to be decided. If the form book comes into play then we will have three of the biggest clubs in the Premier League, and one Championship club making up the semi finals of this competition.

Despite not actually qualifying for the quarter finals yet, Manchester City are the 15/8 favourites to lift the Carabao Cup. Chelsea are the second favourites at 11/4, with Arsenal at 5/1 and Tottenham at 11/2 in behind. You can almost name your price on the rest, the bookmakers think this trophy is going to be won by one of the big four teams left in the competition.

The one game people will be looking forward to is the North London derby and early betting puts Arsenal as the favourites to win that tie at 13/10. There is little to choose between the two teams though, and Tottenham are priced up at 9/5 to win and move into the semi finals.
