Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours
Everton beat Rotherham United 3-1 last night to get their name into today’s Third Round draw of the Carabao Cup. The actual draw will be conducted during the ‘EFL Matters’, which starts at 7pm BST (2pm EST, 11am PST) on Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports Main Event.
This is the stage that the seven teams in Europe also join the competition, and with all teams eligible to play anyone else, we face the prospect of some mouthwatering ties coming up as there are exactly 16 Premier League clubs left of the 32 teams in the draw., with 11 Championship, four League 1 and one League 2 side making up the remainder.

Before the Carabao Cup draw, there will be a slightly higher-profile draw taking place today too, as we’ll find out who plays who in the group stages of the Champions League too. That ceremony will start at 5pm BST (12pm EST, 9am PST) and can be watched on the UEFA website, as well as on BT Sport in the UK and Univision Deportes in the US.
