We've reached the quarter-final stage of the competition that offers teams the chance to lift some mid-season silverware and both Liverpool and Leicester will fancy themselves as serious challengers. This should be a thrilling match at Anfield this Wednesday night.
Liverpool vs Leicester FINAL SCORE: 3-3 (5-4)
This, then, is the very beginning of our Liverpool vs Leicester live blog, with all the build-up and then minute-by-minute updates coming to you below. As always, the entries nearest the top are the most recent ones.
Penalty 12: Liverpool... SCORE AND REACH THE SEMIS!
It's Jota up with the next chance to win it for Liverpool... and he does! It's low and left and beyond the reach of Schmeichel. What a game this was, finishing 3-3 and then 5-4 to Liverpool after a dozen penalties. They're going to the semi-finals.
Penalty 11: Leicester... MISS!
Kelleher saves another, this time getting to a poor and low penalty from Bertrand.
Penalty 10: Liverpool...MISS!
It's the man who scored the equaliser. It's Takumi Minamino. It's over! It's 4-4 from the first five penalties each.
Penalty 9: Leicester... SCORE!
Jamie Vardy doesn't step up. It's Kelechi Iheanacho instead, which is quite a surprise, but he does his job by scoring up high.
Penalty 8: Liverpool... SCORE!
It's Keita next and he is so confident, converting brilliantly to edge Liverpool closer to the semi-finals.
Penalty 7: Leicester... MISS!
Luke Thomas is trusted to take a penalty, but it's saved well by Caoimhin Kelleher.
Penalty 6: Liverpool... SCORE!
Schmeichel almost reaches it, but Oxlade-Chamberlain's penalty goes in.
Penalty 5: Leicester... SCORE!
Substitute Marc Albrighton makes it yet another net ripple, as these sides can't be separated.
Penalty 4: Liverpool...SCORE!
Roberto Firmino is Liverpool's next taker and he converts after his typical pre-penalty stutter.
Penalty 3: Leicester...SCORE!
James Maddison scored in the game itself and now in the shootout as well.
Penalty 2: Liverpool... SCORE!
Next up is James Milner and he beats his opposite captain by firing into the corner.
Penalty 1: Leicester... SCORE!
It's Tielemans first up and he is so confident, leaving Kelleher with no chance.
Full time: We're going to penalties!
This Carabao Cup quarter-final will be decided by penalty kicks. Liverpool fought back from two goals down to make it 3-3 with a very late Takumi Minamino equaliser. The semi-final berth will be won and lost from the spot.
Minute 90+5: GOAL!!! LIVERPOOL EQUALISE!!!
We're going to penalties! Liverpool get the equaliser as Takumi Minamino brings the ball down and finishes perfectly. Leicester came so close to holding on, but the Reds have made it 3-3 in stoppage time.
Minute 90+3: Off target from Oxlade-Chamberlain
You knew Liverpool were going to have a chance or two and they create one here for Oxlade-Chamberlain, but his attempt is miss-hit and goes well wide. Time is running out.
Minute 90: Six minutes of stoppage time
Leicester players are hitting the ground as they try to run out the clock, but they will have six more minutes to navigate. Let's see if they can do that and reach the semi-finals of this Carabao Cup.
Minute 86: It's not falling for Liverpool
They're still pushing, but it's just not falling for Liverpool tonight. Passes are being spun just a little too far or crosses are being put in just a little too close to Schmeichel. The Foxes are inching towards the semis.
Minute 82: What a save from Schmeichel!
Kasper Schmeichel does really well to save an effort that Jota directs on goal after an effort from Keita. The goalkeeper came up big there to maintain Leicester's slender advantage.
Minute 80: Ten minutes to go!
This has been a thriller so far and we have 10 minutes to go until full time. If it's a draw then we go to penalties, but Leicester will hope to avoid that and to hold on.
Minute 78: Williams hits the side netting
After one foray forward for Leicester, it's Liverpool back on the attack and they create another good chance, this time for Neco Williams. He fires wide and hits the side netting, although Schmeichel probably had it covered.
Minute 74: A chance for Liverpool after a no-call
Leicester want a freekick and they should have had one, but it's not called and the Reds break up the other end with Jota and produce a shooting chance for Oxlade-Chamberlain that he hit over.
Minute 69: Jota wastes a good chance
There's a great chance for Jota as the ball comes right to him on the edge of the area, but he seems to be caught be surprise, or thinks he's offside, as his touch is way off. He let Leicester off there.
Minute 66: GOAL!!! IT'S JOTA!!!
We mentioned him and now Jota gets the goal that makes it 3-2. He starts the move and then receives it again after some terrible Leicester defending and some good awareness from his attacking colleagues.
Minute 60: Jota is starting to make an impact
Diogo Jota was one of the players to come on at the half and he is really warming up now, starting to make things happen. Every time he touches the ball, Anfield gets excited.
Minute 56: Soyuncu makes a vital block
Caglar Soyuncu injures himself in the process, but he does really well here to make a vital block on a Roberto Firmino shot. That allows Kasper Schmeichel to gather.
Minute 51: Another save from Kelleher
He may have conceded three, but Caoimhin Kelleher has made some saves too. He makes one here now from Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, with Milner deserving credit too for forcing the Leicester man onto his weaker foot.
Minute 46: Three changes for Liverpool
We go again at Anfield, where Liverpool have made three half time substitutions, bringing on James Milner, Diogo Jota and Ibrahima Konate. Leicester make no substitutions for now.
Half time: Leicester hold the advantage
Well, that was a wild first half of football and it's Leicester who lead at the break, winning 3-1 thanks to a Vardy brace and a blast from Maddison. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain pulled one back for Liverpool, but the Reds have it all to do.
Minute 42: Albrighton has to go off injured
There is some bad news for Leicester City ahead of the half time break, as Marc Albrighton needs to off with an injury issue. He is replaced by Ricardo Pereira.
Minute 38: Off the post from Vardy!
It could have been a Vardy hat-trick after Joe Gomez fails to control a back pass, but this time the English forward can't ripple the back of the net. Instead, it's off the post and Liverpool are still alive.
Minute 33: GOAL!!! IT'S MADDISON THIS TIME!!!
It's a two-goal lead again for Leicester, with James Maddison scoring this time. He smacks a bouncing ball from outside the area and beats Kelleher, who could probably have done better since it was a quite central shot.
Minute 32: Vardy denied this time
Jamie Vardy goes on another foray forward. After looking for support, he decides to go alone and gets into the area, forcing a save from Caoimhin Kelleher.
Minute 28: Minamino hits the deck
There are mild shouts for a Liverpool penalty as Minamino hits the deck. He was surrounded by many bodies in blue shirts, but there was no foul and it's play on.
Minute 25: Kelleher gathers Leicester's latest chance
Caoimhin Kelleher is involved again, this time getting his hands on a ball that goes wayward as Maddison tries to find Paston Daka. This is so back and forth.
Minute 19: GOAL!!! LIVERPOOL PULL ONE BACK!!!
What a wild game this is! We have three goals already, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain now pulling one back for Liverpool. Roberto Firmino does very well, holding the ball up and then teeing up his teammate. 2-1.
Minute 16: Kelleher has to head away another good ball
There's another long ball forward from Leicester towards Daka and this time Caoimhin Kelleher has to rush out of his area to head the ball away. Liverpool have started terribly.
Minute 12: GOAL!!! IT'S VARDY AGAIN!!!
It's 2-0 already to Leicester City, with Vardy scoring both of the goals. This time it's Paston Daka who finds space against Liverpool's young back line and he lays it off perfectly for the centre-forward.
Minute 10: GOAL!!! VARDY ON THE COUNTER!!!
Leicester take the lead, with Soumare winning the ball back in midfield and then leading the counter by feeding Maddison who then passes for Jamie Vardy. The English forward fires in with a shot across goal to make it 1-0 to the Foxes.
Minute 7: First save of the match
Paston Daka breaks free and is bearing down on Caoimhin Kelleher, but the Irish goalkeeper makes a good save to put the shot out for a corner that comes to nothing.
Minute 5: Nobody reaches Neco Williams' cross
Liverpool's first dangerous attack of the match comes from their right flank, but Neco Williams' cross is too strong and flies by everybody. He could be one of the men to watch in this one.
Minute 1: Kick off!
Here we go then! This should be a good one, with many fans in the stands for this one. Both these sides have weakened line-ups, but they should be up for the cup. We'll soon find out who progresses.
