It only the second time in 20 years that they have reached the quarter-final stage and losing away to an in form Liverpool side will not be frowned upon.

They will now turn their attentions to their league campaign with a big fixture against Aston Villa coming up on Saturday.

The Midlands outfit are unbeaten under manager Steve Bruce and they will provide a stern test for Leeds, who are targeting promotion in fifth place.

A win could see Garry Monk’s side move up to fourth in the league table, but a defeat could see them drop out of the play-offs and into ninth.
