Manchester derby highlights League Cup semifinal draw

Get ready for another edition of the Manchester derby.

The semifinal draw for the Carabao Cup was held Wednesday, and pitted the city rivals against one another in what promises to be another captivating encounter. The other semi, meanwhile, features Leicester City and Aston Villa.

Manchester City, the reigning champions, will travel to Old Trafford for the first leg of their tie, while Leicester and Villa will lock horns at the King Power before the scene shifts to Birmingham for the decisive second leg.

The first legs are set to be played the week of Jan. 6, with the return fixtures slated for the week of Jan. 27. The winners will meet in the final on March 1.

Manchester United and City advanced to the final four on Wednesday by virtue of comfortable wins over Colchester United and Oxford United, respectively. The Foxes made things more difficult on themselves, but ultimately booked their ticket by dispatching Everton on penalties.

Aston Villa were the first side to clinch a place in the semifinals, hammering a youthful Liverpool team 5-0 on Tuesday.
