  1. Good night

    And on that note, we wil say goodbye.

    An exhausting day for all concerned! Join us in the morning for the latest from Old Trafford, and tomorrow night for two more EFL Cup quarter-finals.

    See you there.

  2. Post update

    It doesn't look like we will be getting an announcement regarding the identity of the caretaker manager for Manchester United tonight. Stand by your phones though.

  3. 'We are alone in that situation'

    Man City win on penalties

    Manchester City

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola on Sky Sports: "A tough game, it is always difficult at Leicester. We played with a guy who is 17 years old and some injured players, it was a good game.

    "Raheem took that decision [to chip his penalty], unfortunately he missed it but that is OK."

    Reaction to Mourinho sacking:

    "I am always sad for the manager when that happens. We are alone in that situation. I am close to all of the managers. You are sacked when results are not good.

    "He doesn't need me, he is so strong. I wish him all the best and he will be back soon."

    Leicester 1-1 Man City

    Stephen Warnock

    Ex-Liverpool defender on BBC Radio 5 live

    City did not put Leicester to bed and the home side made it hard for them in the second half. Claude Puel changed the game, it was not going for them and they got back into it. Albrighton scored a fabulous goal but Puel will be disappointed because the penalties from his side were very poor.

  5. 'I feel a bit stiff...'

    Man City win on penalties

    Manchester City

    Kevin de Bruyne

    Manchester City goalscorer Kevin de Bruyne on Sky Sports: "It's a relief, it was difficult for us. It was a lot of players who hadn't played a lot. We did a good game, it was an open game and in the end the keeper helped us. He's got veins of ice! He did what he had to do in the shootout.

    "It is difficult to start when you are injured for five months but it felt good to play for 70 minutes. It is a good sign for me.

    "I feel stiff but I am happy to contribute. We want to win titles and now it's two games more and we can battle for another trophy."

  6. Soft at the back?

    Man City win on penalties

    Marc Albrighton

    Manchester City have failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last seven games in all competitions, their longest run without a shutout since December 2016 (eight successive games).

  7. Post update

    Gary Flintoff

    BBC Radio 5 live reporter at King Power Stadium

    Raheem Sterling and Pep Guardiola are all smiles now, but the Manchester City boss was fuming when he missed his penalty in the shoot out. Now goalkeeper Muric takes the applause from the City fans.

  8. Nothing more Christmassy than a World Cup

    December 18 2018 - EFL Cup quarter-finals

    December 18 2022 - World Cup final

  9. FA Cup latest

    Blackpool 2-2 Solihull Moors

    The FA Cup tie has gone to extra-time, confusingly, and you can follow all of the action here.

  10. Post update

    John Bennett

    BBC World Service

    I feel bad criticising Claude Puel after a good second half performance but it proved that if he’d played his strongest team (ie Maddison etc) from the start, that probably would’ve been a very different story.

  11. Post update

    So Manchester City and Burton Albion are through to the League Cup semi-finals.

    They will be joined by Tottenham or Arsenal, and Chelsea or Bournemouth. Those two ties tak place tomorrow night.

    Manchester City players celebrate
