After Wednesday night’s Carabao Cup fixtures had concluded, the draw was made for the Third Round, where the Premier League’s ‘big boys’ are also in the hat.
Holders, Man United, were drawn at home to Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace in a tie that the south Londoners will believe they can win, whilst last season’s runners-up, Newcastle, play the tie of the round at home to Man City.
Other fixtures to keep an eye on are Burnley’s trip to Salford City, Chelsea’s hosting of Brighton and Hove Albion and the lowest ranked team left in the competition – Sutton United – travelling to Port Vale.
There’s something in the draw for everyone, and it’s entirely possible that there’ll be an upset or two from the 16 fixtures listed below, ties to be played w/c September 25.
