With a weekend of Premier League action behind us, we now turn to the second round of the Carabao Cup.

It is round two of the Carabao Cup happening around England. Not all Premier League clubs take part in the action over the next three nights, waiting to see who they take on a week from now when they do join in on the domestic cup fun.

Twenty-five EFL Cup clashes to be played over the next three evenings. Sixteen fixtures on Tuesday evening, another six on Wednesday evening, and then the final stock on Thursday. There will be a total of 13 Premier League sides playing this week.

The Cup is totally overshadowed by the transfer window and the potential ins, outs, and disappointments.
