National Sports

LONDON (AP)After dispatching Manchester United and Manchester City in previous rounds, West Ham will have to get past another of English soccer’s so-called ”Big Six” to reach the semifinals of the League Cup.

West Ham was pitted against Tottenham in the draw for the quarterfinals that was made on Saturday.

With City – the winner of the competition in each of the last four seasons – out, the draw looks wide open.

Premier League leader Chelsea is away to Brentford in another London derby, Liverpool hosts Leicester while third-tier Sunderland – the only team remaining not from the top flight – will play away to Arsenal.

The matches will be played in the week starting Dec. 20.
