The Carabao Cup Round Two and Three draws will take place on Sunday 6 September 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 Round One Carabao Cup tie between Brentford and Wycombe Wanderers.
The Round Two draw is unseeded and will remain regionalised with northern and southern sections.
Upon its conclusion, the Round Three draw will then take place with each tie given a number in the order that they came out in the Round Two 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.
Having the draws conducted together will enable the EFL, Clubs and broadcasters to plan with additional clarity and certainty over a busy period of fixtures whilst supporters are unable to attend fixtures.
Joining the Carabao Cup at the Round Two stage 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 Round Three.
Cool, sounds like a good fixture to give some of the kids a run-out.
Can’t believe this is being played this season.
We play away against Lincoln next week.
Just googled Lincoln and saw their club badge… what the hell is that?
Was sent to Lincoln as a youth,lots of bars.
Have a soft spot for Lincoln having family connections with the place, and having watched them at times in the eighties. Saw them beat Bournemouth 9-0 back in the day. It will be a good game for the likes of Williams, Jones, Brewster etc.
It’s an Imp,hence their nickname “The Imps”.
Villa 2-1 up against Burton,Grealish 87th min.

Like the Liverbird is normal
Neco Matip Gomez Tsimikas

Are those *** the new signing we aren’t aware of yet, but your secret sources already know of?
Wanted to write Shaqiri but wasn’t sure if he will be fit till then.
Some cracking penalty shootouts especially the ones between Bournemouth and Crystal Palace and Hull Vs Leeds and both CP and Leeds are out.
Shocking defeat by southampton to an excellent Brentford team
Wolves out of the cup against Stoke with 6 starters.
It’s opened up a fair bit after only round two.
