Carabao Cup: When do Liverpool play Bournemouth in the fourth round?

Liverpool will travel to Bournemouth for the fourth round of the Carabao Cup, having seen off Leicester City 3-1 on Wednesday night.

The Reds went a goal down early on to Enzo Maresca's Championship-topping side, but completed a second-half comeback thanks to strikes from Cody Gakpo, Dominik Szoboszlai and Diogo Jota.

After a shaky start, the much-changed Liverpool side found their feet, with fringe stars like Wataru Endo – who was voted as Anfield Watch's Player of the Match – and Jarell Quansah impressing, while Curtis Jones shone at right back.

After the game Jurgen Klopp hailed a 'top night' with 'top goals'.

He said, via Liverpoolfc.com: "Minute by minute, we grew into that game and it was a top performance, to be honest.

"With all the quality of Leicester, we have to admit that as well, super-coached team obviously, super set-up, you can pretty much see, feel and smell the confidence they have because of their situation, so that made life difficult. But we kept going and improved during the game as a team clearly but individually as well, a lot of performances stepped up and here we are, and I like that a lot.

"[We scored] top goals, absolutely top goals. But I think the goals we didn't score were pretty beautiful as well, just didn't go in – like the last of Harvey, I have no clue who blocked that.

"How I said, now looking back, a top night for us because you look at Wataru, how he grew into the game and how dominant he was in the second half, how he really won the balls, passed the ball. I'm not sure it was the last pass before Dom scores but for sure probably he passed the ball through the lines again, what he did quite frequently. That was really, really good, he played a super game.

"Jarell Quansah, not only playing outstandingly well, setting a goal up. So exciting, you cannot watch him without smiling, to be honest. It's really, really nice to see."

As a reward for their win, Liverpool were drawn to face Premier League side Bournemouth in the fourth round.
