Carabao Cup draw: Express Sport brings you LIVE coverage of the quarter-final draw
21:55: I fear this is going to take a few more minutes, folks. Sky know we’re at their mercy and right now they are deliberating the difference between Chelsea and Derby. Could take a while with Jimmy Floyd explaining.
21:54: Middlesbrough are in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup! They’ve beaten Premier League Crystal Palace despite making eight changes.
The result doesn’t bode well for Roy Hodgson’s side, who have games against Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United coming up.
21:50: Here are the ball numbers you need to look out for:
1) Bournemouth, 2) Burton Albion, 3) Arsenal, 4) Chelsea, 5) Middlesbrough/Crystal Palace, 6) Tottenham, 7) Manchester City/Fulham, 8) Leicester/Southampton
Once again it feels irrelevant telling you that because I won’t be revealing the draw in such a cryptic fashion.
21:45: Middlesbrough are leading Crystal Palace with around five minutes remaining. Tony Pulis doing what Tony Pulis does – crush dreams and keep clean sheets!
21:43: Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Jamie Redknapp will be pulling the balls out this evening. I’m 28 and still find that sentence hilarious…
Obviously you won’t care who is conducting the draw because you’re stuck with me!
21:40: So tonight’s fixtures are just about done and dusted – and what a night it was! Chelsea were pushed to the limit by Frank Lampard’s Derby while Arsenal just about scraped over the line with a 2-1 win over League One Blackpool.
Spurs eased to a 3-1 win over London rivals West Ham and will join Bournemouth, Burton Albion, Chelsea, Leicester, Southampton and Arsenal in the draw that is fast approaching.
Manchester City and Fulham are playing tomorrow night (for some reason) but will obviously learn their fate tonight.
21:35: Good evening folks, and welcome to our Carabao Cup coverage.
We’re less than 30 minutes away from the quarter-final draw, that will take place after the conclusion of Chelsea vs Derby at Stamford Bridge.
With only eight teams left in the competition – this will be one of those blink and you’ll miss it occasions. So pause The Apprentice and get ready for a bit of Wednesday evening drama!
