English League Cup: Iheanacho, Moses, Mikel in crucial derby ties


Kelechi Iheanacho’s Manchester City as well as the Chelsea duo of Victor Moses and Mikel Obi were Wednesday night handed tricky derby clashes in the EFL Cup Fourth-Round draws.

Iheanacho has another Manchester derby looming as Man City were pitched against fierce rivals United.

On their part, it will be a West London derby as Chelsea were pitched against neighbours, West Ham United.

Iheanacho and his Manchester City teammates booked a ticket to the Fourth Round of the EFL Cup after edging Swansea City 2-1 at the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday night.
