Carabao Cup third-round draw: Man City host Chelsea; Liverpool face Derby
Manchester City will host Chelsea in the third round of the 2022/23 Carabao Cup.
Pep Guardiola’s men – who won the competition four times in a row between 2017 and 2021 and beat the Blues in the 2019 final – will welcome the Londonders to the Etihad during the week commencing November 7.
Chelsea have not failed to progress past the third round since the 2011/12 campaign, while City last exited at the third round stage in 2014/15.
The tie is one of seven involving two Premier League sides, including newly-promoted Nottingham Forest vs Tottenham, Manchester United vs Aston Villa and Newcastle vs Crystal Palace, after the Magpies overcame a scare to beat Tranmere on Wednesday night.
Meanwhile, current holders Liverpool – who beat Chelsea on penalties in last season’s final at Wembley – will face League One side Derby, with Brentford drawn against Gillingham and Newport set to travel to face Leicester at the King Power.
