Sky Sports viewers can watch all the action from the Capital One Cup semi-finals over the next week, as the four remaining sides target a Wembley final date.

Chelsea take on Liverpool in an all-Barclays Premier League tie, while Tottenham Hotspur face a potential banana skin in the form of giant-killing Sheffield United.

All four semi-final matches - the first and second legs in each tie - will be shown live on Sky Sports, starting with Liverpool v Chelsea on Tuesday January 20th (kick-off 7:45pm).

The current Barclays Premier League leaders Chelsea travel to Anfield to take on a resurgent Liverpool, who have shown improved form in recent weeks.

Reds manager Brendan Rodgers will be desperate to get some silverware under his belt, particularly in the wake of a difficult campaign beset by the sale of key players, injuries, goalkeeping issues and the Steven Gerrard saga.

But Jose Mourinho's side go into this League Cup clash as the favourites, not merely due to their superior league position, but because the second leg takes place at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea will hope to be on at least level terms going into the home fixture, which takes place seven days after the first leg on Tuesday January 27th (kick-off 7:45pm).

Should the Blues manage to take an advantage back to west London, Liverpool will find the deficit difficult to overhaul.

In the first leg of the second tie, Spurs host Sheffield United at White Hart Lane on Wednesday January 21st (kick-off 7:45pm).

Mauricio Pochettino's men are in good form and fancied to see off their Sky Bet League 1 opponents, who currently sit seventh in the third tier.

However, they can't afford to take Sheffield United lightly. The Blades have enjoyed some fine cup results in 2014-15, seeing off West Ham and Southampton in this competition and QPR in the FA Cup.

And let's not forget, Nigel Clough's side came close to reaching the FA Cup final in 2013-14, narrowly losing out to Hull City in their Wembley semi-final.

United will no doubt be desperate for another big day out at the national stadium, and as such, will give Spurs a tough test over two legs.

Should the Barclays Premier League side fail to establish a clear advantage in the home tie, there could be an upset on the cards at Bramall Lane on Wednesday January 28th (kick-off 7:45pm).
