Newcastle draw Leicester in all-Premier League clash in EFL Cup

CARABAO CUP DRAW: Newcastle host Leicester in all-Premier League clash in while Nottingham Forest get home tie against arch-rivals Derby

Newcastle drew Leicester in the only all-Premier League tie in the EFL Cup second round.

All Premier League teams outside the top seven were in Tuesday evening’s draw following the first round results.

Newcastle and Leicester’s clash was the main high-profile match with the two teams being drawn against each other in the Northern section.  

A date for clash has not yet been set but all second round ties are scheduled to take place sometime in the week commencing August 26.

The next biggest eye-catching tie to emerge from the draw was the East Midlands derby between Nottingham Forest and Derby. 

Elsewhere, Lincoln will try to be giant killers again against Everton, having narrowly been beaten by the Premier League side in the FA Cup last term.
