Eunan O'Kane: 'Hosting Liverpool is a fantastic tie'

Bournemouth midfielder Eunan O'Kane says that facing Liverpool in the quarter-finals of the League Cup will be a "fantastic tie".

Eunan O'Kane has described Bournemouth's League Cup quarter-final draw against Liverpool as a "fantastic tie" for the Championship side.

Eddie Howe's men beat Premier League club West Bromwich Albion yesterday to book their place in the last eight, setting up a meeting with the side that knocked them out of the FA Cup last season.

The midfielder told BBC Radio 5 live: "It is a fantastic tie for us. We drew them in the FA Cup last year and they probably deserved their two-goal lead they took from our place but it will be a good opportunity to go up against them again.

"We are a better squad. We have more depth, the squad is much better and in terms of form we can't have too many complaints. No-one here will go into the game in fear of them, we look forward to it."

Liverpool needed a late comeback against Swansea City to secure their place in the quarter-finals.
