Both Leicester and Man City make sweeping changes to their starting XI's but it should still make for an interesting match.

The big news today though is the sacking of Jose Mourinho from Manchester United and who could possibly replace him, take a look at the details here...

Michael Jones18 December 2018 18:58

Two names have jumped to the top of the list as replacements for Jose Mourinho and these are Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino and ex-Manchester United star/current manager of Molde, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

15 minutes to go until the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup begin, Middlesbrough welcome Burton Albion in a match that means a non Premier League will definitely reach the semi-finals, but who's it going to be? 

Stay with us to find out...

Middlesbrough won their only previous League Cup meeting with Burton, coming from behind to win 2-1 in extra time in August 2015 thanks to two Cristhian Stuani goals.

This is the furthest Burton Albion have got in the League Cup - they're looking to become the first team from the third tier or lower to reach the semi-finals of the competition since Sheffield United in 2014-15.
