Carling Cup Quarter-Final Draw Sees Tasty Games for Arsenal, Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Man Utd

carling cup trophy Carling Cup Quarter Final Draw Sees Tasty Games for Arsenal, Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Man Utd

The draw for the quarter-finals of the 2011-12 Carling Cup has been made, and there are quite a few mouthwatering matches in store.

The draw revealed:

Arsenal v Manchester City

Chelsea v Liverpool

Manchester United v Crystal Palace

Cardiff City v Blackburn Rovers

The matches between Arsenal and Manchester City and Chelsea versus Liverpool, should be entertaining ones, no doubt. In the two other games, the two high-flying Championship sides Crystal Palace and Cardiff City will be looking forward to shock wins against Manchester United and Blackburn Rovers respectively.

Rovers manager Steve Kean must be counting his lucky stars. Even if the team continues its poor form in the Premier League, he can leverage his team’s success in the Carling Cup as a reason to keep him employed. And now the former Swansea player will be looking forward to the game against Cardiff. A win will book Blackburn a semi-final dream match.

The Carling Cup games will be played on or around November 28, 2011.
