For the second year in a row, Manchester City and Leicester City will meet in the quarterfinal round of the English League Cup.

The English Football League Cup tournament, now known as the Carabao Cup, fires up again on Tuesday. Last year’s winners, Manchester City, will be facing the same club that they narrowly defeated in the 2017/2018 League Cup quarterfinal, Leicester City. Leicester City will be looking for revenge and, more importantly, passage to the semifinals. Leicester City will get their chance in a match that will live stream from King Power Stadium.

To find out how to watch a live stream of the English League Cup Tuesday quarterfinal clash, one pitting the English Premier League’s 12th-place team Leicester City against second-place Manchester City, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:45 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time on Tuesday, December 18, at 32,000-seat King Power Stadium in Leicester, England.

Both sides come into the Tuesday quarterfinal off of recent struggles in the Premier League. Manchester City rebounded after a stunning 2-0 loss to Chelsea by beating eighth-place Everton at home. But Leicester City have dropped two in a row — and looked so uninspired against Crystal Palace on Saturday that Manager Claude Puel substituted for the team’s co-leading goal scorer at the half, citing “poor intensity,” according to the Leicester Mercury.

After defeating Leicester in a penalty shootout in last season’s quarterfinal, Manchester City topped second-tier Bristol City 5-3 in a two-legged semifinal before blanking Arsenal 3-0, as the Telegraph reported, to win the cup.
