Jurgen Klopp might have called for a low profile when it comes to discussing Ben Woodburn, but there is little chance of that happening after the youngster's record breaking night at Anfield.
Liverpool will find out who they play in the semi-final later this evening, when the draw is made.
Woodburn came off the bench to seal the win and at 17 years and 45 days old, outdoing Michael Owen in the Anfield record books as their youngest goalscorer for the senior team.
"But nothing what we say here is important enough to help Ben Woodburn or myself".
"They (Leeds) couldn't show it tonight how strong they are, that's the biggest compliment I would say, from my side".
"So, all good. I'm really happy for him. It's a good moment for him and a good moment for us".
With playmaker Philippe Coutinho ruled out for at least five weeks with ankle ligament damage and striker Daniel Sturridge missing again with a calf injury, Woodburn - and Origi with a second goal in as many matches - offered a welcome positive after a hard few days for the Reds.
The visitors continued to dominate possession, but Liverpool responded through Wijnaldum, who latched onto Sadio Mane's through-ball but sent his low effort crashing off the far post down the other end of the pitch.
Woodburn scored Liverpool's second goal in their EFL Cup match against Leeds United, after finishing well from close range.
"He is a brilliant young player".
We mustn't lose sight of that, this was a Liverpool side with only a sprinkling of youthful verve and spice. "I have a few people that I played with [on the flight], some young players", Lucas told Sky Sports, having led his team in a minute's silence before the match.
Hull keeper Eldin Jakupovic was the shootout hero, saving from Jonjo Shelvey and Yoan Gouffran, while their Newcastle team mate Dwight Gayle hit the crossbar.
