Any hope of a repeat of the 2009-10 League Cup semi-finals clash between the two Manchester clubs were dashed as the duo were kept apart following Wednesday’s draw.

Manchester United, who beat Stoke City 2-0 last night, will now meet Sunderland- Chelsea FC eliminators- while Manchester City, who grabbed a comfortable 3-1 win at Leicester on Tuesday, will lineup against West Ham, who came from behind to beat managerless Tottenham Hotspur.

The first-leg ties are scheduled for the week commencing 6 January, with the second-legs set to be played a fortnight later.
