City face Liverpool on Thursday in the Carabao Cup

By Ken Andrew

The Carabao Cup marks the return of English football with the round of 16 taking place this week. Manchester City will face holders Liverpool on Thursday in what will be the biggest tie of the round. Both teams had majority of their internationals return early from the world cup due to round of 16 and quarterfinal exits thus, strong squads are expected.

Liverpool celebrate winning the Carabao Cup last season after beating Chelsea on penalties.

Manchester United will be boosted by the returns of their players who featured in the world cup quarterfinals such as Bruno Fernandes and Antony, as they prepare to take on Burnley at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

The fixtures will be used to also gauge the preparedness of the teams for the Premier League as it resumes on the 26th of December.
