Semi-finals[edit]

Manchester United, in search of their first League Cup triumph, overcame Arsenal in the semi-finals to reach the final for the first time. A 4–2 win at Highbury was followed by a 2–1 win at Old Trafford. Liverpool, winners of the previous two finals, booked their place in the final for the third year running at the expense of Second Division strugglers Burnley, winning the first leg 3–0 at Anfield. Burnley's 1–0 win at Turf Moor in the second leg wasn't enough to prevent Liverpool from getting through.
