Manchester United will play Hull in the semi-finals while Liverpool will take on Southampton. The two-legged semi-final ties will be played in the weeks commencing 9 and 23 January 2017.
United, who beat West Ham 4-1 in the last eight, will play the first leg of their semi-final at Old Trafford.
United manager Jose Mourinho said his team would forget about the semi-finals until the new year.
“The two legs take a little bit of emotion out of the draw, because the situation of playing away or home doesn’t exist anymore,” said the Portuguese.
“I’m sure Hull have an amazing memory from Wembley and I’m sure they’ll try everything to be there again.
“Manchester United were at Wembley last season. It’s January so now we forget this semi-final, but hopefully we can reach the final.”
Hull, who reached the FA Cup final in 2014, needed penalties to overcome Championship leaders Newcastle on Tuesday.
For Mike Phelan and Hull City, the competition is a ray of light in what has otherwise been a rather disappointing return to the Premier League for the Tigers. Phelan was Sir Alex Ferguson’s trusted second-fiddle at United, but this time around, he can rest assured that he will get no favours from his old team.
Southampton, comfortable winners over Arsenal on Wednesday, will host in-form Liverpool at St Mary’s before the return leg at Anfield.
Claude Puel’s Southampton have flown under the radar but have performed reasonably well. The Saints played Liverpool at St. Mary’s only two weeks ago, with a resolute defensive performance earning them a 0-0 draw. Virgil Van Dijk and Jose Fonte stood tall on that day, and they will once again be the lynchpins for the Saints against Klopp’s men.
Liverpool, winners of the competition a record eight times and finalists in 2016, saw off Leeds on Tuesday with a 2-0 win at Anfield.
For Klopp, this is his third semifinal appearance in his time at Liverpool. Both the previous ones ended in victory, but Liverpool faltered at the final hurdle – against Man City in the League Cup final and against Sevilla in the Europa League final last year in Basel.
