Manchester United’s reward for scraping past Rochdale on penalties on Wednesday night is an away tie with Chelsea in the Carabao Cup fourth round.

The Red Devils struggled to overcome League One opposition at Old Trafford but triumphed 5-3 on penalties in the end, setting up a clash with Chelsea – who put seven past Grimsby Town – in the fourth round’s most eye-catching clash.

Elsewhere in the draw, Premier League leaders ​Liverpool host ​Arsenal. Jurgen Klopp’s youthful side saw off MK Dons with a 2-0 victory, while the Gunners beat Nottingham Forest 5-0 on Tuesday.

Aston Villa were paired with rivals Wolves, while Carabao Cup holders Manchester City will host Southampton.

There are just two ties without Premier League sides remaining as Crawley were drawn against Colchester and Oxford, who caused the upset of the third round by beating West Ham 4-0, were paired with Sunderland.
