Liverpool U23s will face Middlesbrough away from home in the last 16 of the Premier League Cup.

The young Reds sealed progress to the competition’s knockout stages courtesy of a 4-0 victory over Stoke City last Sunday, with Dominic Solanke bagging a hat-trick and Bobby Adekanye the other goal.

And the reward for Neil Critchley’s side is a trip to the north east to take on Boro.

The tie will be played as a one-off game, with extra-time and penalties on the day if required. Full fixture details will be confirmed on soon.
