Manchester City v Burton Albion: Carabao Cup semi-final preview

Gills players bundle Elliott List in celebration after his 81st minute winner

Gills players bundle Elliott List in celebration after his 81st minute winner

While that looked ominous for League One Burton, who are at the Etihad on Tuesday for the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final, the Brewers showed they could see the amusing side in a post that appeared on their official Twitter account on Monday.

Luton's last meeting with Chelsea was in this semi-finals of this competition in 1994, where goals from Gavin Peacock sent the Blues into the final for the first time in 24 years.

It will be a physical match-up and it could be quite a bitty game but with Heung-Min Son, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane, Tottenham will score and I'm backing them to edge this first leg.

"We've never been to the Etihad, so we're looking forward to that and to seeing all the facilities and it will be a big learning process for our players seeing some of the best players in Europe at close quarters".

Mohamed Elneny's Arsenal have been drawn against Manchester United in the fourth round of the FA Cup while Hegazi's West Bromwich travel to Brighton.

The League Cup may no longer be everyone's cup of tea - with Guardiola admitting it was fourth out of four on his list of priorities this season - but it was under Brian that Nigel learned standards should be maintained whatever the occasion. No disrespect but, like in the FA Cup, I think it will be done.

Last month, Unifor presented the automaker with a number of options to keep the plant open. "We're not going anywhere", he said. But the company's current stance won't stop Unifor and its leaders from continuing to fight, Dias said.

The final of the competition will take place on Sunday 24 February at Wembley Stadium.

The defending Premier League champions are four points behind league leaders Liverpool, but manager Pep Guardiola insists his side are taking the tie "very seriously".

Clough, however, admits seeing his League One strugglers in the last four of the League Cup and the other three teams that his side could face, was a little surreal. Nigel Clough has done a fantastic job but the cup run ends here.

I think both will go after the game and field full-strength sides.

"Anything's possible. We've had some very hard opposition in the previous rounds and we managed to pass those tests".

"That said, the opportunity to play City overrides everything else at this stage".
