Southampton were handed a semi-final clash with Liverpool after knocking Arsenal out of the EFL Cup.

The Saints recorded a 2-0 win at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night to reach the last four of the competition for the first time since the 1986-87 season.

Liverpool, winners of the cup a record eight times and finalists in 2016, had seen off Leeds on Tuesday evening with a 2-0 victory at Anfield where 17-year-old Ben Woodburn became the club's youngest goalscorer.

The other semi-final will see Manchester United play Hull.

United beat West Ham 4-1 at Old Trafford on Wednesday night, while Hull had needed penalties to get past Sky Bet Championship leaders Newcastle following extra-time in their tie on Tuesday.

The first legs will be played the week commencing January 9, with the second legs a fortnight later.
