Manchester United are in similarly good form. The Red Devils will also take plenty of confidence from their fairly recent 3-1 win at Goodison in November.
The two sides appear to be very evenly matched – as is reflected in the league table – so we could see a close game.
Manchester United have failed to win a trophy in the last three seasons and will view this competition as a chance to end that run.

Everton vs Manchester United: Carabao Cup quarter-final preview
Everton welcome Manchester United to Goodison Park on Wednesday night for their Carabao Cup quarter-final clash.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side beat Leeds 6-2 at Old Trafford on Sunday. Scott McTominay (2), Bruno Fernandes (2), Victor Lindelof, and Daniel James all netted in an emphatic win.
Sunday’s win lifted United up to third in the table on 26 points, although they have a game in hand over the two sides above them. Man United have won four of their last five away games in all competitions.
Everton extended their unbeaten run to four matches with a 2-1 win over Arsenal on Saturday. A Rob Holding own goal – via Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s head – and a Yerry Mina header secured victory for the Blues. The Toffees are level with United on 26 points, but have played a game more.
How Man United & Everton got here
Manchester United have had a comfortable run to the last eight. They beat Championship side Luton Town 3-0 in the second round before replicating that scoreline away to Brighton in the third round.
Everton’s path has been equally kind. They put five past Fleetwood Town in September, before beating West Ham 4-1 a week later.
It’s been more than 25 years since Everton’s last cup triumph, when Joe Royle’s side won the FA Cup. Everton have never won the League Cup, although they last reached the semi-final in 2016.
Manchester United have won the League Cup five times in their history, most recently in 2017 – they have not won a trophy since.
Everton and Manchester United have been evenly matched since the start of last year. Manchester United were 3-1 winners when the sides met at Goodison in November. Bernard had given Everton the lead in that game, but a Bruno Fernandes brace had United back in front before the break. Edinson Cavani rounded things off by adding a third in second-half stoppage time.
The Toffees did beat United 4-0 at Goodison in April 2019, although a lot has changed for both sides since then.
Everton team news vs Manchester United
Carlo Ancelotti fielded a full-strength side in the previous round in September and is set to do so again for the quarter-final.
Robin Olsen could replace Jordan Pickford in goal, while there could also be starts for fit-again duo Jonjoe Kenny and Seamus Coleman in defence.
James Rodriguez is expected to return to Everton’s matchday squad, although he may have to settle for a place on the bench after recovering from a calf injury.
Andre Gomes is a doubt for Wednesday. The central midfielder was left out of the squad to face Arsenal “as a precaution after feeling slight discomfort in his hamstring”.
Likewise, Allan is also unavailable due to a hamstring injury, although Ancelotti did not give a time frame for his recovery.
With a number of central midfielders unavailable, Tom Davies may continue alongside Abdoulaye Doucoure, with Gylfi Sigurdsson a little further forward.
Lucas Digne, Fabian Delph, and Jean-Philippe Gbamin are all long-term absentees.
Manchester United team news vs Everton
After a man of the match performance against Leeds, Scott McTominay was forced off in the final minutes with a groin issue and is unavailable for Wednesday.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer rotated heavily in United’s round two game at Brighton in September but is expected to field a stronger side at Goodison.
Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Mason Greenwood, and Juan Mata were unused substitutes against Leeds and should be involved. Donny van de Beek and Edinson Cavani will also be pushing for further minutes.
Luke Shaw “has been ill for a few days” and could be given a rest. The capable Alex Telles should start at left-back.
Dean Henderson is expected to start in goal, with David de Gea dropping to the bench.
Marcos Rojo will “hopefully be back in January” after suffering a reoccurrence of a previous calf injury that has kept him out all season.
Phil Jones remains a long-term absentee with a knee injury.
