Carabao Cup third round draw: Man City to play Chelsea

The draw for the third round of the Carabao Cup has been carried out.

There was plenty to talk about from the previous round. The biggest upset came at the Broadfield Stadium, as League Two side Crawley Town eliminated Premier League outfit Fulham. Meanwhile, four other ties were decided by a penalty shootout.

And in the third round, you can expect to see loads more drama. The top sides enter the competition at this stage, giving potential for some major upsets.

The biggest tie of the draw undoubtedly comes at the Etihad Stadium. Manchester City, who have won six of the last nine Carabao Cups, face last year’s runner-up Chelsea. The two met in the 2018/19 final, which the Cityzens won on penalties.

That is one of seven all-Premier League ties. Meanwhile, holders Liverpool begin their defence with a home fixture against Derby County.

All ties are set to be played between November 8 and November 10.
