Carabao Cup semi final draw

Manchester United will come up against their former midfielder Jesse Lingard at the penultimate hurdle in the Carabao Cup after being drawn against Steve Cooper’s Nottingham Forest.

Which of course means that the transformed Newcastle United will take on Southampton in the other last four encounter. The struggling men from the south coast of England have caused the sensation of not only the night but God knows how long by ousting a Manchester City side who have farmed the competition in recent seasons.

Eddie Howe has taken Newcastle United from the brink of oblivion to within reach of European football.

Semi final ties to be played over two legs during the weeks of January 23rd and 30th.
