Everton start their annual quest for a Cup in the second round of the Carabao Cup (formerly known as the League Cup, EFL Cup, among others). The 2019–20 edition of the competition is the 60th season of the competition, which is open to all 92 clubs in the Premier League and the English Football League.

All Premier League sides not involved in European games enter the competition at this stage. The 13 teams (including Everton) will join the two clubs who finished 18th & 19th in the Premier League (Cardiff City and Fulham) and 35 winners from the First Round which is completed today.

The 25 winners from the Second Round are then joined by the seven Premier League sides in Europe this season to make 32, and make it a conventional knockout competition from that point on. In addition, the first and second rounds are conducted within North and South regions to reduce travel times where possible.

Key Rule Changes

There will be a number of changes to this year’s Carabao Cup, with extra-time abolished for all rounds except the final at Wembley. In case of a draw at full time, the tie will go straight into a penalty shoot-out. The ABBA penalty system which had been trialled previously has been eliminated in favour of the classic ABAB penalty-taker format.

With no extra-time in the two-legged semi-finals, away goals will not be used as a tiebreaker and if the two sides are tied on aggregate after the two legs, the fixture will proceed to the penalty shoot-out.

There will be no seeding in the first two rounds, only the northern and southern regions and any side can be drawn against any other side in the same region.

Video assistant refereeing (VAR) will be utilized for any fixtures played at Premier League grounds, and be used for the same four categories as in Premier League games - goal/no goal, penalty/no penalty, direct red card and mistaken identity.
