The 2020/2021 Carabao Cup second and third round draws will take place this afternoon, live on Sky Sports.
Hosted by David Garrido the draws will be conducted by former Liverpool defender and 1995 EFL Cup winner Phil Babb, following the first round Carabao Cup tie between Brentford and Wycombe Wanderers.
The second round draw is unseeded and will remain regionalised with northern and southern sections.
The third round draw will then take place with each tie given a number in the order that they came out in the second round draw – they will then be subject to another unseeded draw on an either/or basis, alongside the seven Premier League Clubs competing in Europe who enter at this stage.
Joining the Carabao Cup in the second round are the 13 Premier League Clubs that are not competing in Europe in the 2020/21 season, including Everton, West Ham and Wolverhampton Wanderers alongside Sky Bet Championship sides Bournemouth and Watford.
The remaining clubs, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal will join in the third round.
