We last played Leeds in the League Cup at the fourth-round stage in 2001, winning 2-0 at Elland Road thanks to two Eidur Gudjohsen goals. We also met in the 1969/70 season, Chelsea again coming out on top after replay, as we also did at the end of that campaign in the FA Cup. 

The rest of the fifth round draw is:

Swansea v Middlesbrough
Norwich v Aston Villa
Bradford v Arsenal
