City will travel to Leicester City in the quarter finals of the Carabao Cup, following a farcical draw on Thursday afternoon.

The draw was scheduled to be broadcast live on Twitter, but technical problems left fans waiting for almost two hours before a pre-recorded video was finally shown.

The game will be screened live on Sky, with kick-off at 7.45pm on December 19th.

A statement from the EFL read: "The EFL has received an apology from Twitter UK for the delay which is believed to have occurred as a result of a faulty encoder.

"The EFL has requested a full explanation into the events that led to this afternoon's unacceptable delay."

A Twitter spokesman said: "We're sorry for the issues that led to the delay of today's round five draw. We would also like to apologise to the thousands of supporters who had been patiently awaiting news of who their team would be playing."
