FT: Liverpool (5) 3-3 (4) Leicester; Jota and Kelleher the heroes as Leicester squander a two-goal lead to suffer elimination; Tottenham 2-1; Brentford 0-2 Chelsea; Madrid win, PSG draw >>>

Carabao Semi Final is set

Arsenal vs Liverpool

Chelsea vs Tottenham

Athletic Bilbao 1-2 Real Madrid

Benzema brace ensures away win for Los Blancos. Real Madrid now have an 8-point cushion at the top of the La liga table going into Christmas.

Liverpool WINS

Jota buries from the spot, sending Liverpool to the semi-final round.

They win 5-4 with Jota and Kelleher the heroes as Leicester squander a two-goal lead to suffer elimination.

What. A. Game.

FT: Lorient 1-1 PSG

Difficult to overstate how lucky PSG got to take something from this game.

Another rudderless display that was lit up by the odd moment of brilliance from Messi.

Ramos see red!

Sergio Ramos has been sent off in the 85th minute with PSG down a goal to Lorient.

Two yellow cards in quick succession for the Spanish star and he’s off with his first dismissal since moving to Paris this summer.

Full time

The final whistle has blown across England, but we’re not done yet…

Spurs and Chelsea are through, having won 2-1 and 2-0 respectively, but Liverpool and Leicester will need to survive penalties to join them in the semi-final round of the Carabao Cup.

3-3 oh my word!

Liverpool have come from 2-0 and 3-1 down, levelling the score at 3-3.

Minamino with the goal in stoppage time and Anfield is going crazy as penalties seemingly loom…

GOAL! Brentford 0-2 Chelsea

Jorginho surely secures Chelsea’s place in the final four from the Penalty spot!

Own Goal! Brentford 0-1 Chelsea

Super footwork from Kante sets in James down the right and his cross is turned into his own net by Pontus Jansson! 😁

Liverpool Again! Liverpool 2-3 Leicester

Liverpool are right back in it, and it has been coming to their credit.

Minamino plays through Jota, who rips a shot past Schmeichel and into the back of the net for his seventh goal in eight matches.

The goal brings the scoreline to 3-2 as the Reds now have 22 minutes or so to find an equalizer.

Anfield is rocking, but can they find a third?

Carabao Cup is back on!

The three games in England are back for the start of the second half.

PSG IS LOSING

A tough start for PSG, who find themselves 1-0 at the half against Lorient.
Thomas Monconduit has fired the hosts ahead as Ligue 1’s leaders will need to battle back away from home.

Madrid Leading Atletic Bilbao 0-2 Madrid

Meanwhile, Benzema brace has given Real Madrid a fantastic start.

Half-time in the Carabao

What a start, at least in two of the games.

Leicester are up 3-1 against Liverpool thanks to a Vardy brace and a Maddison stunner, with Oxlade-Chamberlain the goalscorer for the hosts.

Spurs are also leading, as they sit up 2-1 against West Ham after a pair of quickfire goals in that one.

Finally, there’s Chelsea and Brentford, who remain deadlocked at 0-0 after 45 minutes.

KICKOFF IN SPAIN

Atletico Bilbao vs Real Madrid game is underway!

Goaaaal!!! – Liverpool 1-3 Leicester

A 30-yard screamer from Maddison! What a goal from the Leicester man!

Goal – Tottenham 2-1 West Ham

Absolutely incredible footwork from Bergwijn who puts it on a plate for Lucas!

Goal – Tottenham 1-1 West Ham

Brilliant goal from Bowen after Dier gives ball away trying to play out. West Ham fully deserve that, they had three good efforts in the few minutes between Spurs going ahead and Bowen’s equaliser.

Goooooaaal – Tottenham 1-0 West Ham

Bergwijn scores but he owes a lot to Hojbjerg. Drives forward into the box, plays a one-two with Bergwijn. Hojbjerg then squares it back to Bergwijn, who squeezes a shot into the net.

Goal – Liverpool 1-2 Leicester

Really good play from Tsimikas and Firmino in particular, Oxlade-Chamberlain fires home from the edge of the box. Liverpool back in it!

Vardy Again!! – Liverpool 0-2 Leicester

This time Dewsbury-Hall feeds Daka, his low ball across is slotted home by Vardy – his second in a matter of minutes!

Gooooooaaaal – Liverpool 0-1 Leicester

Clinical finish from Vardy low past Kelleher from Maddison’s pass. Came after Tsimikas couldn’t find Oxlade-Chamberlain on the break and Leicester sprung quickly.

KICK OFF!

The Carabao Cup games are underway!!!

Liverpool vs Leicester Starting XI

Salah and Mane do not make the Liverpool squad for the Carabao Cup. Vardy starts in attack for the Foxes as they look to progress to the next round.

Tottenham vs West Ham Starting XI

The Spurs team also see a heavy rotation with players like Doherty and Bergwijn coming into the fold. Moyes field senior players like Bowen, Masuaku and Rice.

Brentford vs Chelsea Starting XI

Tuchel makes eight changes to the team that filed out against wolves. Academy players, Simons, Vale and Soonsup-Bell make their first-team appearance for the Blues while Webster and Hall are on the bench.

Liverpool vs Leicester

Tottenham vs West Ham

Brentford vs Chelsea

Welcome to another Live Blog by Apex football. We would be covering a number of exciting games today so be sure to tighten your seatbelt for the long ride! 

Our coverage begins with the remaining Quarter final fixtures of the Carabao Cup in England. Brentford would play host to Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea, Liverpool will slug it out with Leicester at Anfield, while Spurs have the Hammers to worry about in London. 

In the French Ligue 1, Messi would have to contend with Lorient himself as PSG would be without Neymar (injured) and Mbappe (suspended). In Spain, Madrid would faceoff with Atletico Bilbao in an away encounter that would solidify their grip at the top into the NEW YEAR!
