Cape Town - The Third Round of the Capital One Cup gets under way on Tuesday, September 23 with 10 matches, before a further six games on Wednesday. 

Round 2 of the Cup was the certainly the round of the scalp, with no less than six Football League sides upsetting Premier League opposition to progress. 

This week’s fixtures see sides involved in European tournaments enter the fray, with Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham, Everton and Hull City in action.

Manchester City return to the competition as holders following their 3-1 win over Sunderland at Wembley back in March, taking on Sheffield Wednesday at the Etihad Stadium in Round 3.

Middlesbrough’s will visit to eight-time winners Liverpool on Tuesday, while Tottenham Hotspur and Nottingham Forest will meet on Wednesday.

Another notable fixture sees an all-Premier League clash between Arsenal and Southampton. The Gunners will be looking to extend their strong record against their visitors in the competition.

Arsene Wenger’s men have never lost to the Saints in the League Cup, winning four and drawing two of their six meetings.

Last season’s runners-up Sunderland face Stoke City at the Stadium of Light and have also never recorded a League Cup win over Tuesday’s opposition in their history, losing both of their two fixtures against them. 

MK Dons, who thrashed Manchester United in the previous round host Bradford City on Tuesday.
