The English Football League has announced the complete draw for the 2022/23 Carabao Cup. The biggest fixture from this draw has to be where defending Premier League champions Manchester City will host Chelsea. Pep Guardiola's team has won the tournament four times on the trot between 2017 and 2021 as they took down the Blues in 2019 final and will face the London-based at the Eithad Stadium during the week commencing 7 November.

Chelsea has not failed to get through the third round since the 2011/12 campaign, while Man City last crashed out of the third round stage in 2014/15. Talking about the marquee fixture, the Cityzens defeated Chelsea on penalties after a goalless draw at Wembley. 

Before that, the Blues played Manchester City in November 1984 at Stamford Bridge, where the home team registered a 4-1 win in the fourth round. Then nearly after a decade, in 1993, Chelsea lost 1-0 at Maine Road in the third round of this competition.

The Man City - Chelsea is one of seven fixtures involving two Premier League sides, including newly-promoted Nottingham Forest taking on Tottenham Hotspur. Then Manchester United is set to face Aston Villa while Newcastle United will go head to head against Crystal Palace as the Magpies defeated Tranmere Rovers on Wednesday night.

After a thrilling draw against Manchester City, Newcastle went down 1-0 in the 21st minute and then came back, thanks to goals by team captain Jamaal Lascelles and Chris Wood. Whereas, defending champion Liverpool is set to face  League One side Derby County.

Another Premier League team, Brentford have been drawn against Gillingham and while Newports are set to travel to face Leicester at the King Power. The third-round ties will take place from 8-10 November 2022.
