Carabao Cup draw LIVE

– Sixteen third round ties to be drawn
– Draw will be conducted after West Brom vs Arsenal at approximately 9.45pm
– Champions League quartet Man City, Man United, Liverpool, Chelsea all in pot
– Europa League and Europa Conference League teams Leicester, West Ham, Tottenham all involved too

9.30pm: Manchester City again enter this competition in the third round and have utterly dominated it under Pep Guardiola.

Their triumph over Tottenham at Wembley earlier this year was the fourth successive season in which they have lifted the League Cup.

Can they make it a fabulous five this season? Their squad depth certainly makes them most people’s favourites.

But the likes of West Ham and Leeds United are among the other Premier League clubs eager to win silverware and who will fancy their chances.

9.20pm: There’s seven Championship teams through to the third round with a further two from League Two in Rochdale and Oldham.

There are five League One representatives including Sunderland, with a possible Tyne-Wear derby showdown with Newcastle if they beat Burnley this evening.

The other game alongside West Brom vs Arsenal this evening is Newport County vs Southampton.

That means in total there could be 16 EFL teams in the next round if the Baggies beat Arsenal and the South Wales outfit get the better of the Saints.
