Liverpool vs Arsenal, Man United vs Chelsea Headline EFL Cup Draws



The next round of EFL Cup matches will be played the week of Oct. 28, and there are indeed a couple of ties that jump out at you in there. The round of 16 will feature plenty of lower tier sides as a few Premier League clubs, including Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United, crashed out of the competition’s third round.

Looking ahead to the round of 16, you have two all-big six clashes to mark on your calendars- Manchester United versus Chelsea and Liverpool vs Arsenal. Chelsea absolutely dominated their competition in the third round while United were fortunate to barely squeak by.

Three more of the eight ties feature match-ups where both teams are from the top flight.
