Everton have been drawn away to Huddersfield Town in the second round of the Carabao Cup.

The Toffees’ route to Wembley will begin on either Tuesday August 24 or Wednesday August 25, when they travel to John Smith Stadium.

The two sides last played each other in the 2018-19 season when the Terriers were still in the Premier League, with a 1-1 draw (Dominic Calvert-Lewin) at Goodison Park in September, and then a 1-0 win (Richarlison) for the Blues the following January. Huddersfield have struggled since dropping out of the Premier League, coming close to relegation from the Championship last season after finishing 20th out of 24 sides.

Everton have previously played Huddersfield twice in Cups, both times in the League Cup and coincidentally both times at this same stage of the tournament, the second round. The first time the Toffees played the Terriers in the League Cup was a two-legged tie, with the Blues drawing 1-1 (Dave Watson) at the Terriers before winning 2-1 (Olivier Dacourt, Marco Materazzi) at Goodison Park. More recently, they met at Goodison Park in August 2010, winning 5-1 with Marouane Fellaini, Jack Rodwell, Jermaine Beckford, Louis Saha & Leon Osman all scoring for David Moyes side.

The Blues have never won this competition in their 141-year history, but have been beaten finalists twice, against Aston Villa in 1977 and to Liverpool in 1984. Their run in the tournament last season lasted until the quarterfinals, when they were comprehensively beaten 2-0 by Manchester United at Goodison Park.

The thirteen Premier League sides not playing in Europe this season enter the competition in this round, with the other seven joining in the next round, with the tournament split into two regions for convenience of travel for now.

There are two all-Premier League matches, with Newcastle hosting Burnley and Watford FC against Crystal Palace.
