hoped to avoid this but on the positive note if we progress we will be huge favourites for the final

Liverpool will play City 3 times in 3 consecutive weeks in January.

Going to be some really insane battles.
It won't be a game of who has better players.
It will all boil down to tactics, and which team has the better manager.

Don't know how much Mancini cares about the league cup but Liverpool are out to win it.

Perfect draw in my opinion.

It was fixed so Utd got Cardiff but the FA didn't count on them getting knocked out.

Really?? Wow! Did you not see the draw live on TV!

@buddymagoo - oh gimme a break! them draws have been fixed for years in utds favour I mean all the way through league cup you had an easy ride and you still couldn't get the job done even in Europe for years you had the easiest groups! Only deluded utd fans cant see anything wrong with the draws when other fans have been noticing it for years now. It's easy enough to do.

It's because utd make more money in the cups due to more people watching thanks to more fans. So they use all there power to try make sure they get through. Simple really thats the FA and UEFA would try squeeze every penny out the cups they can.

A match between two of the strongest teams in the league atm. Can't wait.

Well it will be interesting as its over 2 legs. It was a stalemate at Liverpool so if City can do that again and get a win at home it should be a lot easier. But as we know nothings that simple in football as UTD found out last night.
