Premier League leaders Manchester City will travel to London to face Arsenal in the League Cup quarter-finals, after the draw was made for the Cup competition between the four tiers of English League football.

Chelsea resume their cup rivalry with Liverpool, the latest in a series of several meetings between the clubs in recent years in a match which also pits Chelsea striker Fernando Torres against his former club.

It's a repeat of the 2005 final between the Blues and the Reds.

In the other two quarters, promotion candidates Crystal Palace travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United while another Championship side, Cardiff City, welcome Premiership strugglers Blackburn Rovers in the Welsh capital.
