Manchester City to face Leicester City in Carabao Cup fifth round

Manchester City will face Leicester City at the King Power Stadium in the Carabao Cup fifth round.

Carabao Cup fifth round matches are scheduled to take place in the week commencing 18 December, with an official date and time to be revealed in due course.

City also met Leicester away in the fifth round of this competition back in 2013, with an Edin Džeko brace helping them to a 3-1 win.

The full draw is as follows:

– Chelsea vs. Bournemouth
– Arsenal vs. West Ham
– Leicester City vs. Manchester City
– Bristol City vs. Manchester Utd

City edged past West Brom in September’s third round clash at The Hawthorns and had another difficult match in the fourth round, as they required a penalty shoot-out to beat Champions leaders Wolves on Tuesday night at the Etihad Stadium.

The Blues have won the EFL Cup, historically known as the League Cup, on four different occasions, including twice in the last three years (2014, 2016) and will hope to become five-time winners this season.
