City to face Chelsea in Carabao Cup

City have been drawn at home to Chelsea in the third round of the Carabao Cup

In what is arguably the tie of the round, the clash is a repeat of the 2019 final that saw City triumph 4-3 on penalties.

Prior to that, City and Chelsea had met twice in the League Cup - the first ending in a 4-1 defeat for the Blues at Stamford Bridge in 1984 and the second clash ended 1-0 to City at Maine Road in 1993.

With six Carabao Cup final victories since 2014, City have dominated the competition in recent times.

Last season, the Blues were knocked out by West Ham United on penalties, bringing an end to a four-year reign as Carabao champions.

Liverpool went on to beat Chelsea in the final.

The third round ties will take place the week commencing 7 November and details of City’s tie, including tickets, date and time will be released in due course.

The Chelsea game is sandwiched between two other matches against London opposition, with Premier League clashes with Fulham (5 November) and Brentford (12 November) - all at the Etihad!
