There’s more to football than just the Premier League at the beginning of a whole new year of chaos as the Carabao Cup returns at a critical stage.
Just four teams remain in the hunt for a place at Wembley, including a Championship side mixing it with the big boys.
Fans were treated to multiple consecutive weeks of Carabao Cup games on TV – sandwiched between Premier League fixtures – and now each team sits one game away from the final.
Reigning champions Manchester City take on resurgent Manchester United in a tantalising derby clash with both sides in excellent form.
In the other match-up, Tottenham host second-tier Brentford but the game will be anything but a mismatch as the Bees have polished off four Premier League teams – and kept three clean sheets against them – on the way to the semi-finals.
Spurs haven’t won a trophy since their League Cup victory in 2008 and Jose Mourinho will be determined to mark his reign with silverware.
RadioTimes.com brings you all the fixtures, TV games and broadcast information.
