Manchester United will face West Ham in the third round of the Carabao Cup.
This stage of the competition sees the teams involved in European competitions enter, so it’s a new experience for the Hammers, who usually enter in the second round.
Man City will begin their defence of the trophy against Wycombe Wanderers, who are back in League One this season after suffering relegation from the Championship.
United start their campaign with a home tie against West Ham – which will be a big occasion for Jesse Lingard, who spent the second half of last season on loan with the London outfit. It is believed that David Moyes is still trying to sign the midfielder on a permanent basis before the transfer deadline.
