Liverpool to face Chelsea in Carabao Cup third round

West Ham survive League Cup scare Cardiff knocked out

Ties will be played in the week commencing September 24.

Tottenham Hotspur "applied for a special dispensation from the EFL Board" to play their match against Watford at Stadium MK, cup organisers said, because of the unavailability of Wembley on that date and ongoing construction delays to their new stadium. Milton Keynes Central train station is a 30-minute journey from London Euston.

"Consideration was given to a number of different football stadia and for a variety of reasons - capacity, availability, facilities, accessibility, pitch quality and clubs still being in the competition themselves - it was simply not possible to secure a neutral venue within the M25".

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Leicester City is another all-Premier League clash that bears watching for both sides have made promising starts to the Premier League season. Mourinho and Lampard won the 2005 trophy together with Chelsea.

Chelsea face a stern test in the third round of the Carabao Cup, as a trip to Anfield against Liverpool awaits them.

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard, making his first steps into management, will be up against his former boss Jose Mourinho.

Last year's winners Manchester City will travel to play Oxford United, while last years runners-up Arsenal will host Brentford.

Premier League sides in European competition now join the action to make up the 32 teams in the draw.
