Manchester United have been drawn away to Chelsea in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.
The draw took place after the Reds eliminated Rochdale on penalties on Wednesday night in the third round of the competition, following a 1-1 draw against the League One side.
Mason Greenwood bagged United’s only goal of the night, while 16-year-old Luke Matheson scored for the visitors.
The Reds netted all five penalties after the conclusion of the game, to win 5-3 in the shoot-out and set up the fourth-round tie with Chelsea, the first time we have met them in the League Cup since the sides played out a nine-goal thriller in 2012.
During that remarkable game seven years ago, which went to extra time, Chelsea emerged as 5-4 winners, with Ryan Giggs (2), Javier Hernandez and Nani getting the goals for United.
We have, of course, met Chelsea more recently than that and, when we last locked horns with the Londoners, United enjoyed a superb 4-0 opening-day win in the Premier League this term.
Elsewhere, Liverpool has been paired with Arsenal, while Manchester City is set to welcome Southampton to the Etihad Stadium.
