Carabao Cup 2nd/3rd-round draws: Liverpool, Man Utd on the road

Date published: Sunday 6th September 2020 3:27 - Rob McCarthy

EFL newcomers Harrogate face a dream trip to Premier League West Brom in the second round of the Carabao Cup.

The reward for Saturday’s win over Tranmere on penalties is a visit to the Hawthorns to play the Baggies, themselves only recently promoted back to the top-flight.

Fellow Sky Bet League Two side Salford also have a Premier League challenge having been drawn against Everton at Goodison Park in the North group.

There is an all-Premier League tie between Burnley and Sheffield United, while League One Burton host top-flight opponents in Aston Villa.

In the South group, Bournemouth – relegated from the Premier League – host top-flight Crystal Palace.

Ties are to be played the week commencing September 14.

The third round was drawn immediately afterwards and threw up a number of potential prime ties.

Should Harrogate overcome West Brom then they would have a home game against Premier League Southampton or Championship club Brentford.

The incentive for winning their second round tie for League Two Bradford and League One Lincoln is a home tie against Premier League champions Liverpool, while either Leyton Orient or Plymouth will get Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham.

A Championship side in either Luton or Reading will host Manchester United in round three, while the only all-Premier League third-round tie sees Leicester host Arsenal.

Holders Manchester City, who have won the trophy the last three seasons, have a home tie at home to either Bournemouth or Palace.
