Liverpool to play West Ham in League Cup quarter-final

The draw for the quarter-finals followed Liverpools victory at Bournemouth, with Jurgen Klopps side winning 2-1 in what the manager called brutal conditions on the south coast.

The Reds were drawn at home to West Ham.

When Liverpool last reached this stage of the competition, they went on to lift the trophy at Wembley were all for good omens!

The quarter-final ties will take place on either December 19 or December 20.

For Liverpool, this match will sit between the visit of both Man United (Dec 17) and Arsenal (Dec 23) in the Premier League two huge games for Klopps men.

So far, the manager has used the competition to rotate his squad and it would not be a surprise to see him do so again when the tie comes around.

Under Klopp, Liverpool have reached this stage of the competition five times in nine seasons. As for the two-legged semi-final, the Reds have played three under his tutelage.
