Last night, Liverpool was drawn to play Leeds United in the last eight of the EFL Cup at Anfield.

Both sides progressed to the quarter-finals with relative ease, although Gary Monk’s Leeds United side had to go to penalties to see off Norwich City. The Championship side is just three points off the play-off places and is tenth in the table.

The last time Liverpool and Leeds played was in 2009 when the EFL Cup was called the League Cup and the Reds saw off Manchester United’s bitter foes with a goal from David N’Gog.

Manchester United defeated their city rivals last night and have made it to the next round and will play West Ham after the Londoners saw off Chelsea. Arsenal will host Southampton and Hull City come up against Rafa Benitez’ Newcastle.

Looking at the teams that still remain in the competition, Liverpool looks set to return to the final and if an early prediction is to be made, the final will probably be an Arsenal vs. Liverpool affair. Both sides have looked very impressive so far this season and are leading the Premier League title race on 20 points each, along with Manchester City.

Liverpool has a great chance of success in just about every domestic avenue this season and I wouldn’t be surprised if Jurgen Klopp inspired his team to silverware on more than one front.
