Liverpool to host Chelsea in EFL Cup third round

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.

'In contrast, we shall have a ticket allocation of up to 90 per cent at a neutral venue, ensuring greater access for our fans'. But the move has been delayed over safety concerns.

The fixture with Watford is one of four all-Premier League ties, with Everton-Southampton, Wolves-Leicester and Liverpool-Chelsea the others.

That was Jose Mourinho's first trophy in English football.

Aaron Judge's recovery from a broken wrist has been slow, and the team chose to bring in some outfield help. The teams also agreed to split the roughly $2.4 million remaining on McCutchen's contract this season.

Liverpool have been drawn to face Chelsea in the third round of the EFL Cup resulting in fans of both the Reds and Blues reacting on social media to the fixture.

Mourinho will now face Lampard in the dug-out and the United boss admitted it was no surprise the Chelsea legend became a coach.

Arsenal, who reached the final last team, will host Championship side Brentford in a London derby, while League Two outfit Macclesfield Town, the lowest ranked side left in the competition, are away at West Ham United.

The first pot in the draw is made up of teams who won their domestic league title last season, so Manchester City, Barcelona and Juventus are among those who feature, as well as Atletico Madrid, who won the Europa League, and Real Madrid, as the current holders of the competition.
