Jamie Carragher comments on Liverpool’s League Cup draw against Leeds United

Jamie Carragher has his say about Liverpool's League Cup quarter-final clash against Leeds United next month

Jamie Carragher believes that Liverpool have been handed a good draw after they were pitted against Leeds United in the quarter-finals of the League Cup.

The Reds booked their place in the last eight thanks to a 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield on Tuesday night.

Leeds United, meanwhile, secured their place in the draw with a 3-2 win over Norwich City at Elland Road on Tuesday.

Liverpool will now host Leeds in the last eight of the EFL Cup next month.

And former Reds defender Carragher believes that Jurgen Klopp and his team will be satisfied with their EFL Cup draw.

Speaking on Sky Sports immediately after the draw was made, Carragher said: “Leeds United are a Championship side. They’ll bring a great crowd like they always do, Leeds.

“But you look at some of the teams in the draw, and they could have gone away to a Premier League side, so it’s a decent draw for Liverpool.”

Liverpool return to Premier League action this weekend with a trip to Crystal Palace in the top flight.
