The draw for the semi-final of the Carabao Cup was conducted on Wednesday night, January 11, 2023.

Southampton, who eliminated Premier League champions Manchester City, will take on Newcastle United.

The only big shock of the round came at St Mary's thanks to Mara and Djenepo, with City now failing to win two League Cup tournaments in a row after winning four on the bounce.

City went into the game as huge favourites thanks to the respective form of the two sides, with Pep Guardiola never losing a domestic cup quarter-final at the helm.

Jones watched his side start the gane with purpose and make that pressure count through Mara - with Djenepo's goal coming from a mistake by back-up keeper Stefan Ortega.

That shock result came as Forest beat Wolves on penalties after Willy Boly scored against his former club but it was cancelled out by Raul Jimenez.

Erik ten Hag's United had already booked their spot thanks to a 3-0 win over Charlton which included a late Marcus Rashford brace after Antony's opener.

Manchester United, the hot favourites to win the competition face Nottingham Forest.

The two-legged ties will take place in the week commencing January 23 and January 30 respectively.

The final will be played February 26 at Wimbledon.
