Leicester City overcame a second half stumble to eventually beat Everton 4-2 on penalties (2-2 after 90 minutes) to advance to the Semifinal of the League Cup - the Foxes’ first Semifinal since they won the competition in the 1999/2000 season.

The draw took place immediately after full-time in tonight's games, with Leicester joined by 3 Premier League rivals, Manchester United, Manchester City and Aston Villa, who qualified after beating the mighty Colchester United, Oxford United and the Liverpool youth team, respectively.

Surely it wouldn’t be Man City again?

No! Not this time.

With the two Manchester rivals out of the pot 1st and 2nd, Leicester were drawn against midlands “rivals” Villa, who won 5-0 on Tuesday.

The semi is a two-legged home and away affair, set to be held in January.

The Foxes were drawn out first, so the first leg will take place at the King Power stadium on the 7th or 8th of January, with the return fixture at Villa Park on the 28th or 29th.

The final will be on Sunday March 1st and this draw gives Leicester great chance to book their place.
