The English League Cup fourth round draw has produced a promising clash between Arsenal and Liverpool, while Manchester United are to face Barnsley. Both games are set for late October.

AFP - Arsenal will face Liverpool in the League Cup fourth round's glamour tie, while holders Manchester United travel to Championship club Barnsley.
  
Arsene Wenger's latest crop of young starlets are certain to be on show against the Reds at the Emirates Stadium.
  
Meanwhile, new Barnsley boss Mark Robins, a former Manchester United striker, will take on his old club at Oakwell hoping the Tyles can replicate their FA Cup run of 2008 when they knocked out two of the Premier League's 'big four' in the shape of Liverpool and Chelsea.
  
Saturday's draw also sent Peterborough to Blackburn and Scunthorpe head to Eastlands to face Manchester City.
