Liverpool will host Leeds in the EFL Cup quarter-finals when the two teams meet for the first time since a League Cup match in 2010.

West Ham's reward for dumping Chelsea out at the London Stadium is a trip to Old Trafford after Man United's narrow victory over Man City.

Newcastle will fancy their chances against Premier League strugglers Hull after thrashing Preston, while Arsenal face a tricky home tie against Southampton.

EFL Cup quarter-final draw:

  • Liverpool v Leeds
  • Man United v West Ham
  • Hull v Newcastle

Leeds want Monk to replace Evans as manager

Former Swansea manager Garry Monk appears to be the man Leeds want to replace Steve Evans.

United announced Evans' protracted departure on Tuesday night, saying they wanted to go in a different direction to the Scot who had claimed he would be given a new deal beyond the end of this month if he kept the club in the Championship.

That contract was not forthcoming, though, and after a three-week wait to learn his fate - a time during which owner Massimo Cellino interviewed other people for his role - he was let go.

Monk is not thought to be one of those Cellino met while Evans was in place - MK Dons' Karl Robinson was one while an approach was made for Bristol Rovers' Darrell Clarke - but he now looks to be the front-runner, with some reports suggesting talks have begun.

Press Association Sport understands Monk is the leading candidate Cellino is now focussing on to replace Evans, with the 37-year-old out of work since leaving Swansea in December last year.
