LEEDS United’s EFL Cup quarter-final at Liverpool will take place on Tuesday, November 29 with the game screened live on Sky Sports (kick-off 7.45pm).

Sky’s decision to broadcast the last-eight clash means Leeds will now be screened live on Sky five times in 20 days in November and December with five of the club’s matches shown in succession.

After the televised Championship home clash with Newcastle United on Sunday, November 20 (1.15pm), United’s league trip to Rotherham United on Saturday, November 26 will also be shown live (5.30pm).

The Sky cameras will then head to Anfield for the EFL Cup quarter-final on Tuesday, November 29, before visiting Elland Road for the Championship game with Aston Villa on Saturday, December 3.

The final instalment of Sky’s spate of United coverage comes away at Brighton in the Championship clash on Friday, December 9.

United’s EFL Cup tie with Liverpool will be the club’s first visit to Anfield since 2003 with the Elland Road club bidding to end a 20-year wait for an appearance in the League Cup’s semi-finals.

The clash with Jurgen Klopp’s side – currently joint top of the Premier League – is United’s reward for their dramatic win over Norwich City in the fourth round on Tuesday.

Liverpool reached the last eight with a 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur.

The bookies have already priced up United’s visit to Liverpool with Leeds as big as 11-1 to win in 90 minutes.

Manchester United’s home tie with West Ham United is the other EFL Cup quarter-final chosen to be screened by Sky, on Wednesday, November 30.

The other quarter-finals see Hull City host Newcastle United on the Tuesday with Arsenal at home to Southampton on the Wednesday.
