The Carabao Cup third round draw will take place later this week as the Premier League’s big guns enter the competition.
Liverpool ended Manchester City’s dominance of the trophy last year with a penalty shoot-out win over Chelsea.
And they will enter the tournament in the third round as they look to defend it.
But the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City will see the Carabao Cup as an opportunity to win silverware, while the other 13 top-flight sides will also want to go deep if they make it past the second round this week.
