Liverpool to host Chelsea in third round of the Carabao Cup

28th August 2018 Club News Carabao Cup third round draw on Thursday

The third round ties are due to be played in the week beginning on September 24.

Tottenham Hotspur "applied for a special dispensation from the EFL Board" to play their match against Watford at Stadium MK, cup organisers said, because of the unavailability of Wembley on that date and ongoing construction delays to their new stadium.

"However, the club felt it would not be beneficial to request a reverse of the fixture as it would have resulted in no more than a 10 per cent allocation of tickets for our supporters at the venue of our opponents". But the move has been delayed over safety concerns.

The Reds, who have won the competition a record eight times, will lock horns with a team who have lifted the trophy on five occasions in what is the standout tie of the round.
