Premier League champions, Liverpool will travel to either Bradford City or Lincoln City in the third round of 2020-21 Carabao Cup after second and third Round draws were conducted together.
Bradford will host Lincoln at Valley Parade in Round Two across midweek of 15-17 September 2020 with the winners hosting Liverpool in the Third Round a week later across the midweek of 22-24 September 2020.
Reigning champions, Manchester City will kick-start their title defence at home to the winner of Bournemouth’s second round meeting against Crystal Palace.
Last season’s runners-up, Aston Villa face a tough second round trip to the Pirelli Stadium as they take on 2018-19 semi-finalists, Burton Albion with the winners visiting the winner of Bristol City’s tie with Northampton Town a week later.
Leicester will open their cup campaign with a tasty home tie against fellow Europa League qualifiers, Arsenal at the King Power Stadium in the third round, whilst Manchester United will visit either Reading or Luton at the same stage.
Tottenham potentially will visit Leyton Orient in a London derby if Orient can defeat Plymouth in the second round, although Spurs are expected to field a youth based team due to their participation in Europa League qualifying that week if they get past Lokomotiv Plovdiv in the second qualifying round next week.
League Two newcomers, Harrogate Town will visit West Bromwich Albion in the second round with the winners playing host to Southampton or Brentford a week later in the third round.
