U23s to face Swansea in Premier League Cup

Luke Williams' U23s have been handed a Premier League Cup round of 16 tie against Swansea City.

The academy side will travel to South Wales for the game, on a date yet to be confirmed.

The draw for the first knockout round of the Premier League Cup was made live on Twitter shortly after 10am today (March 1st).

City have already beaten Liverpool in the group stage, which also included wins against Stoke and Charlton Athletic.

The Premier League Cup draw in full:

  • Middlesbrough v Liverpool
  • Newcastle United v AFC Bournemouth
  • Brighton & Hove Albion v Everton
  • Aston Villa v Blackburn Rovers
  • Wolves v Exeter City
  • Swansea City v Bristol City
  • Southampton v Leicester City 

All knockout ties, from the last 16 through to the final, will be one-off matches. If the teams are level after 90 minutes, they will be decided by extra-time and then penalties if there is still no winner.

City's run in the Premier League Cup group stage:

  • W 3-1 v Stoke
  • L 0-7 v Liverpool
  • W 1-0 v Charlton
  • D 3-3 v Stoke
  • W 1-0 v Liverpool
