Chelsea Await Potential London Derby in 2020-21 Carabao Cup Fourth Round

Chelsea await a London derby in 2020-21 Carabao Cup Fourth Round headline tie whilst reigning champions, Manchester City face a potential North-West derby at Turf Moor. 

If Frank Lampard’s Blues get past Barnsley in the Third Round next week, they will visit the winner of Leyton Orient’s tie against Tottenham Hotspur in a mouth-watering London derby clash.

Should Orient get past Spurs then they will face Chelsea for the first time in all competitions since May 1982 when they drew 2-2 at Stamford Bridge in the old Second Division, otherwise Lampard will meet his former Blues manager – Jose Mourinho in cup competition for the very first time.

Defending champions, Manchester City meanwhile face a tough away trip to Turf Moor if Burnley beat Millwall in the Third Round and they win against Bournemouth at the Etihad Stadium, otherwise it will be an equally tough trip to The Den for Pep Guardiola’s Citizens to take on Gary Rowett’s Lions.

Premier League champions, Liverpool meanwhile face an all top flight tie at Anfield against either Leicester City or Arsenal if they can defeat Lincoln City at Sincil Bank on Thursday 24 September 2020.

In the event that Liverpool and Arsenal both progress to meet at Anfield in the Fourth Round, it will mark the second consecutive season in which these two Premier League giants have collided on Merseyside at this same stage, after the Reds won on penalties following a dramatic 5-5 draw in which the North Londoners led 3-2 at half-time.

Elsewhere, Manchester United face an away trip to the winner of Preston North End’s clash against Brighton if the Red Devils can take victory at Luton Town on Tuesday 22 September 2020.
