Liverpool have been drawn to play away to Man City in the Carabao Cup fourth round.
The Reds’ reward for beating Derby County on Wednesday night is a match against Pep Guardiola’s side.
The exact date is to be confirmed, but it will be on either December 20, 21 or 22 – potentially just two days after the World Cup final.
Liverpool will be hoping to have Luis Diaz back from injury for the match, while anybody not involved in the latter stages of the World Cup will also be available.
Liverpool will have fewer players than Man City at the World Cup.
Should Liverpool progress, the fifth round takes place in the week commencing January 9.
