THE Premier League big guns are ready to join this year’s Carabao Cup third round.
Manchester City enter the draw as Pep Guardiola’s men look to defend the trophy they won after beating Chelsea at Wembley back in February.
When is the Carabao Cup draw?

But after using a Morrisons supermarket for round one, they’ve gone more traditional with rounds two and three.
The draw will take place TONIGHT – Wednesday, August 28.
It will be held pitch-side at Cincil Bank after Lincoln City’s clash with Everton at around 9.45pm, but closer to 10pm if the match goes to penalties.
