Carabao Cup draw: Man Utd, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal discover third round opponents

The third round draw is about to get underway in Beijing, China.

It’s taking place there as part of the plan to try to expand the competition in the Far East.

An EFL Cup spokesman said: “We understand that not everyone will agree on the timing of this week’s round-three draw, but in staging in this way, it will give the competition both the maximum exposure in the UK, Chinese and Southeast Asian markets.

“This is not only an important factor for the EFL but also our new sponsors Carabao, who, like ourselves, plan to use the growing global appeal of the competition to reach new audiences.”
