Football League Cup 2014: Quarterfinals schedule and scores
The Capital One Cup returns for the quarterfinal stage in midweek.
We are already at the quarterfinal stage of the Capital One Cup, with the action to return on Tuesday. In action is Premier League leaders and tournament favourites Chelsea, who head to Pride Park to play high-flying Championship promotion contenders Derby County. Meanwhile, the lowest-ranked club left in the tournament, third tier Sheffield United, play host to an off-colour Southampton, who will look to finally get back to winning ways.
On Wednesday, the only all-Premier League clash sees Tottenham Hotspur welcome Alan Pardew’s Newcastle United to White Hart Lane. Meanwhile, down on the South Coast, second-tier league leaders Bournemouth will look to inflict further pain on Brendan Rodgers‘ struggling Liverpool, who head into this game smarting from their heavy defeat away at rivals Manchester United on Sunday.
If you’re a fan of big cup upsets, you might get to see one during this slate. Derby, Sheffield United and Bournemouth are all on great runs at the moment, and their stadiums should be full and loud for their matches against Premier League opposition.
The full schedule is below, with all kickoffs at 2:45 p.m. ET. Scores will update below as the matches finish.
