Carabao Cup fourth round draw was made ahead of this week’s third round ties

by wongani Chipeta

Arsenal, Chelsea and Fulham have joined West Ham United in progressing to the fourth-round of the Carabao Cup this evening.

The Gunners defeated Premier League rivals Leicester City 2-0 at the King Power Stadium, Chelsea made light work of Championship side Barnsley at Stamford Bridge, winning 6-0, and Fulham had to dig deep to record a 2-0 home triumph over a much-changed Sheffield Wednesday side at Craven Cottage.

Victories for the London trio mean they join West Ham, who defeated Hull City 5-1 on Tuesday evening, in having advanced to the last-16 of the competition, with the prospect of a trip to Wembley now one step nearer.

As has been the case with the Carabao Cup so far this season, the draw for the fourth-round ties took place last week following the conclusion of the second-round, meaning clubs knew who their fourth-round opponents would be before they had even kicked a ball in the third-round.🇲🇼
