Big clash beckons in Carabao Cup third round

From the official Chelsea FC website:

Chelsea have been drawn to play Manchester City in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

The Blues, ball number eight in tonight’s draw, will travel to the Etihad, with the tie scheduled to take place in the week commencing November 7, later than usual because of the unusual timing of the 2022 World Cup.

We last faced City in this competition in the 2019 final, which they won on penalties after a goalless draw at Wembley. Prior to that we played the Citizens in November 1984 at Stamford Bridge, winning 4-1 in the fourth round, then nearly a decade later, in 1993, we lost 1-0 at Maine Road in the third round of this competition, where we will meet again in 10 weeks’ time.

Exact fixture details will be confirmed in due course, along with ticket and travel information.

The full draw is:

Leicester City v Newport County

West Ham United v Blackburn Rovers

Wolves v Leeds

Nottingham Forest v Tottenham

Manchester United v Aston Villa

Bournemouth v Everton

Liverpool v Derby County

Burnley v Crawley Town

Bristol City v Lincoln City

Manchester City v Chelsea

Stevenage v Charlton Athletic

MK Dons v Morecambe

Newcastle United v Crystal Palace

Southampton v Sheffield Wednesday

Arsenal v Brighton

Brentford v Gillingham
