Oh, what’s that? You were expecting news on the CHAMPIONS LEAGUE draw? Well, sorry, I can’t help you there. Not yet, anyhow. But stay tuned!
Regardless, there are other, lesser competitions. And in the pantheon of top tier English competitions, this is certainly the lesser-est. That’s right, I’m talking about the League Cup, now known as the um...hold on...I had it right here...
Right. The Carabao Cup. Exciting stuff. Carabao? Best energy drink out there, by far. In order to appease their new corporate overlords (based in Thailand) the Football League decided to hold the draw at 4:15 AM BST (10:15 AM Thai time).
Liverpool will play the third round tie away to Leicester City on Monday, September 18th. Perhaps it would be easier to bring a few extra changes of clothes, instead of returning all the way to Merseyside, because Liverpool will return to King Power Stadium on Saturday, September 23rd for Premier League action. That said, it is safe to assume that the Reds will likely play a heavily changed side for League Cup action, despite the Premier League opponent.
Here are some other notable draws:
- West Brom vs. Manchester City
- Crystal Palace vs. Huddersfield Town
- Bournemouth vs. Brighton and Hove Albion
- Everton vs. Sunderland
- Manchester United vs. Burton Albion
- Chelsea vs. Nottingham Forest
- Arsenal vs. Doncaster Rovers
