The remaining Premier League sides in European competition will be added to the EFL Cup, with 16 ties being drawn out
The Carabao Cup saw the Premier League sides avoid upsets in the second round.
Seven top flight sides took on lower league EFL opposition, with all seven sealing a safe passage although many had to bide their time.
They both ended up getting the job done against Forest Green and Huddersfield respectively, but had to dig in to reach the next round. Brighton maintained their 100 per cent start to the season with an impressive win at Cardiff whilst Watford came out on top in the all-Premier League tie against Crystal Palace.
Attentions now turn to the third round and the seven top flight sides in European competition this season now enter the fray.
That includes holders Manchester City, who are chasing a fifth consecutive trophy.
They will join the confirmed 22 teams already in the hat, which includes seven Championship sides, five from League One and two from League Two.
The draw will take place live on Sky Sports Football after the conclusion of the second round tie between West Brom and Arsenal, at roughly 10pm. Ball numbers will be confirmed on Wednesday afternoon.
