Capital One Cup: Quarterfinal draw

Scott Heavey

Most of the big guns are out, so the quarterfinals of the Capital One Cup are going to be pretty interesting. With Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool all dumped out of action on Wednesday, the field's opened up for Chelsea and Arsenal, who've both managed fairly easy draws. The Blues, winners of a 5-4 thriller against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, will travel to Leeds United, while Arsenal who won an equally ludicrous game against Reading on Tuesday, have been rewarded with a trip to minnows Bradford Town.

There's also an all-Premier League grudge match, with Norwich hosting Aston Villa in the second installment of The Battle of Paul Lambert. The Canaries were good for a point at Villa Park last weekend, and they'll be hoping to inflict more misery on a scuffling Villa side by knocking them out of the competition. Elsewhere, Liverpool-killers Swansea get to face Middlesbrough -- who just beat Sunderland at the Stadium of Light -- in Wales. Should be a good set of matches, although it'd be tough to compare to the fifth round, which were absolutely crazy.

The full draw is below:

Leeds United vs. Chelsea
Norwich City vs. Aston Villa
Swansea City vs. Middlesbrough
Bradford Town vs. Arsenal
