Manchester City will discover their opponents for the third round of the Carabao Cup, as Pep Guardiola’s side prepare to enter the competition.
The treble-winners suffered a surprise quarter-final defeat to Southampton in last season’s competition, as Manchester City missed out on winning the trophy for the second successive year, having previously won the Carabao Cup on four consecutive occasions.
Manchester City enter the tournament at the third round stage, receiving an automatic bye due to commitments in the UEFA Champions League.
