Time for penalties (1-1 after 120 minutes)

One minute of stoppage time 22:15 Penalty shout... Vardy goes down under challenge of Danilo 

116 min: Leicester believe they should have had another penalty. Vardy had got ahead of Danilo and the full back appeared to bring him down. No penalty given. 1-1 it remains. 

114 min: This isn't really the City we've got used to watching in the Premier League. Bravo has been forced into hoofing ball after ball forward which have rarely found a City player. 

111 min: Benalouane replaces Dragovic. A fresh pair of legs who might be able to cause City problems. This game really does look like it is hurtling towards penalties.

Underway for the second half of extra-time Half-time in extra-time: Leicester 1-1 Manchester City 

Half-time in extra-time: Leicester 1-1 Manchester City 

105 min: City free kick as Harry Maguire is booked for a late challenge. Yaya Toure is standing over the ball along with Gundogan. It will be Yaya Toure to take... his right-footed effort produces a routine save from Hamer. 

103 min: Bravo takes a touch too many as Vardy closes him down within seconds. Bravo manages to kick the ball before it rebounds off the Leicester striker and goes out for a goal kick. Huge relief for City and Bravo.

94 min: A big scare for Manchester City. The ball was played over the top towards Okazaki. Walker looked to be in a good position to control the ball but slipped.

91 min: Walker sprints down the right wing before getting the ball back to Jesus who can't get enough power on his shot and Hamer saves comfortably.

Full-time: Arsenal 1-0 West Ham The Gunners progress to the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup. We have extra-time at the King Power 

GOAL: Vardy 90+6min pen (Leicester 1-1 Manchester City Vardy places the ball to Bravo's right and it's 1-1. We're heading for extra-time.

LEICESTER PENALTY Gray is clipped by Walker in the area and Leicester have a penalty with three minutes to go. 

Eight minutes of added time

89 min: This is what we've got used to watching this season. City are only 1-0 up but they look so comfortable. Walker, since coming on, has helped them organise in defence. Leicester don't look like getting an equaliser. I say that and Vardy just misses the ball coming into the City six-yard area. A big chance. Meanwhile, Foden comes off for Tom Dele-Bashiru as Brahim Diaz is replaced by Lukas Nmecha.

81 min: Mahrez does superbly to turn Zinchenko before playing in a brilliant cross that Vardy gets his head to ball but it goes wide. Mahrez then goes close himself as he cuts inside and produces a strong save from Bravo down to his left. Meanwhile, Kyle Walker comes on for Mangala after the defender took a blow on the nose. 

79 min: Phil Foden is starting to show exactly what he can do. With the Leicester players tiring, Foden is starting to see more of the ball and is passing the ball about with a real calmness.

72 min: Demarai Gray replaces Ben Chilwell as Leicester again try to find a spark they so badly need.

70 min: Mangala heads behind after a good cross by Fuchs. The ball goes to the back post where Harry Maguire is waiting but he can't direct his header back across goal.

64 min: City looking very organised at the back. Leicester have tried a number of ways to get behind the City backline but it simply hasn't happened with any great success. Mahrez is doing his best to find space with dynamic runs but really City haven't been troubled by him yet. Meanwhile, Gundogan is booked for simulation.

58 min: The Leicester fans sense a way back into this game, as they chant 'Jamie Vardy's having a party.' 

57 min: ( Leicester substitutions... Vardy and Mahrez on ) Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez come on for Kelechi Iheanacho and Marc Albrighton. An attacking move by Claude Puel.

54 min: Heavy collision between Jesus and Hamer after Dragovic tracked back to catch up with the Brazilian. The momentum of Jesus took him forward and he couldn't stop himself as he collided with the goalkeeper. Thankfully both are back to their feet and OK.

52 min: Leicester have changed their approach. Puel's side have decided to go a little more direct in this second half. Ben Chilwell, the full back, has certainly adopted that approach well. He's just sprung off the ground to meet a header, only for it to go over the bar and Gabriel Jesus to catch him in the face with a boot.

49 min: (Steady start to the second half ) City in control from the off in the second half. Guardiola's side have slowed the game down but they must be careful not to dawdle on the ball too much. Gabriel Jesus a little guilty just now of putting in a late tackle on Harry Maguire.




45+1 min: There will be at least one more minute before the break. “Do you want a fight?” blurts Sam Hughes à propos of je ne sais quoi. Are you asking whether I hope this match descends into violence? Or are you challenging me to a duel? If it’s the latter, meet me tomorrow at 10am on Winnie the Pooh Street in downtown Warsaw. I’ll be the bloke in the black suit of armour.

43 min: Albrighton bangs another beautiful cross over from the right. No one had anticipated it, bizarrely, so it runs all the way over to Fuchs on the far side. He sends it back into the danger zone, Toure completely miskicks but Zinchenko manages to whack it away.

42 min: GOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLL!! Arsenal have taken a 1-0 lead over West Ham thanks to Danny Welbeck.

40 min: Leicester continue their resurgence as Iheanacho collects the ball some 25 yards out and goes for a goal himself, forcing another decent save fro Bravo. “Who else apart from England has a League Cup?” fumes Oleg Giberstein.

“England is the only one who has four competitions - and it’s a silly thing to do!” And yet here you are, following the coverage of this League Cup tie. Although apparently you don’t follow the equivalent competitions in France, Scotland and Portugal, to name a few others. 

36 min: Fuchs drops in a fine corner into the six-yard box. Bravo comes off his line and punches well away.

33 min: Fuchs releases Chilwell down the left and the youngsters plays a low ball over to Iheanacho. The Nigerian swaps clever passes with Okazaki in the Man City box, as the defence scramble to cover.

Then Iheanacho gets off a a quick first-time sidefooted shot from 10 yards ...and Bravo plunges low to his right to make a smart one-handed save! That’s much more like it from the hosts!

31 min: This Man City side have really begin the thrum in the last 10 minutes or so. Leicester are looking all out of ideas at this point.

“When Pep said ‘here you have four competitions” what did he mean?” asks Raimond Skrupsk. I’m guessing he meant the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and Champions League, which is, of course, three domestic competitions and a continental one.

Which is certainly not unique to England.
31 min: City are looking more dangerous with every attack. Bernardo Silva, fresh from his goal, wants another goal. The midfielder keeps coming forward with pace and can supply a fantastic ball. Jesus and him are linking up well.

28 min: After cute work by Diaz, Foden curls a delicious cross in from the left. Leicester put it out for a corner with great difficulty. But they clear the corner more easily.

25 min: GOAL: Bernardo Silva 25min (Leicester 0-1 Manchester City)

22 min: Iheanacho receives a yellow card for catching Bravo slightly late. The goalkeeper jumps out of the way but the striker catches him.

20 min: Bernardo Silva plays it short to Gundogan. He gets the ball to Foden but his effort is deflected behind by Iborra. Another corner. Gundogan takes this time. Cross comes into the area but Adarabioyo's header goes wide after getting ahead of Fuchs. 20:05 Leicester on the attack

17 min: Ben Chilwell has started really well tonight. The full back just burst down the right before crossing into the City area only for Christian Fuchs to completely miss his header. That was definitely a chance for the Foxes to cause Guardiola's side a big problem. 20:00 Foden and Bernardo Silva mix up
13 min: Foden's incredibly ambitious but was probably a bit over eager there. Bernardo Silva was lining up a shot when Foden tried to get in on the action... unfortunately he got in the way of Silva and City lose possession.

6 min: Yaya Toure back in the City side tonight and already having an impact. The experienced midfielder is dropping deep to protect the defence but also to help create attacks. Phil Foden is going to get a great lesson in controlling the midfield tonight. 

3 min: Adarabioyo comes to the rescue as it appeared Iheanacho would have a clear route to Bravo in the City goal. The City youngster keeps his composure and gets across to make a good challenge.

1 min: The travelling City fans seem to be enjoying themselves as they poke fun at local rivals United. City having the majority of possession in the opening stages.

Underway at the King Power Stadium Ian Ladyman, who is covering Leicester v Man City tonight, writes: 'No surprise to see Man City rest players here tonight.

This competition is fourth on their list of priorities this season. However, I must admit that I find the Leicester team a bit depressing.

'Claude Puel reached the final of the League Cup last season with Southampton and I would have thought he would have taken the opportunity to have a real go with a strong side tonight. As it is, he has fielded a side that looks almost like it is asking to be beaten.

We will see.' Leicester and Manchester City out at the King Power Stadium Stay with me for full coverage of Leicester v Manchester City and updates from Arsenal v West Ham.
