Manchester United drawn against Burton in Carabao Cup third round

Manchester United begin the defence of the Carabao Cup by hosting Burton in the third round.

United, who beat Southampton in last season’s Wembley final, will welcome Nigel Clough’s Championship side to Old Trafford after the 40-minute draw was made in Beijing this morning.

Jose Mourinho’s side have only ever played the Brewers twice before, when the then non-league club earned a famous FA Cup replay after drawing 0-0 at Old Trafford, before United won 5-0 at the second attempt.

League One Doncaster have been rewarded for beating Championship Hull with a trip to the Emirates to face Arsenal, while the other third-tier club Bristol Rovers visit Wolves.

2014 winners Manchester City have been drawn away at West Brom, eight-time winners Liverpool visit Leicester, Chelsea will play Nottingham Forest at home and Everton host Sunderland.

Tottenham will play the winner of Barnsley versus Derby, Burnley’s record signing Chris Wood will have a quick reunion with his former club Leeds as the Yorkshire side head to Turf Moor and Huddersfield make a repeat journey to Crystal Palace, the scene of their opening-day win in the Premier League.

Elsewhere West Ham take on Bolton, Reading host Swansea, Stoke head to Bristol City and Brighton make the trip along the south coast to Bournemouth.

The draw was made in China at 11.30am local time, to try and boost the EFL’s exposure in Asia, though it was not televised after mishaps in the last two draws.

The first-round draw, held in Thailand where the makers of energy drink Carabao are based, showed Charlton playing two teams in the on-screen graphic.

Then former England winger John Salako, conducting the second-round draw, got confused about which teams were playing at home or away.

Although starting late, there were no such embarrassments this time around, with each tie revealed on Twitter around two minutes apart on Twitter.

Ties to be played week commencing September 18.
