|Carabao Cup draw Friday (we enter 2nd round and new rules)|
at 06:04 12 Jun 2018
Vietnam will host the first-round draw for the 2018-19 Carabao Cup on Friday.
It is the second campaign in a row the event has taken place in the Far East, after last year's first and third-round draws were held in Thailand and China.
Last season the English Football League apologised after early draws were beset by problems - including teams being drawn out twice and confusion around home and away ties.
The 35 first-round games take place during the week starting 13 August.
EFL chief executive Shaun Harvey said they wanted to "promote the competition internationally" alongside the competition's Thai sponsor.
West Bromwich Albion, who were relegated from the Premier League last season, are included in the first-round draw which will take place at 10:45 BST in Ho Chi Minh City.
Fellow Championship newcomers Stoke City and Swansea City will join in the second round alongside the top flight clubs which are not competing in Europe.
The EFL announced on Friday that extra time had been scrapped in the EFL Cup for next season, while seeding has been removed for the first two rounds of the competition.
However, north and south regionalisation will remain.
EFL Cup matches will go straight to a penalty shootout if the scores are level after 90 minutes to reduce "additional fatigue issues" following a vote by member clubs.

I don't really understand how it works but is the Premier League close to losing a place to France or Italy.

Am I correct in thinking if we win this match it will equal our Premier League record of four home wins in a row. Incredible if true, considering everything this season.

Goals in time added on used called goals in "Fergie Time"
Our last three matches we scored.
This can not be a fluke and must be down to Clements better training, conditioning and mental preparation.
Time to call it goals in Clementime?

What was that all about. In the past I've seen riot police, dogs, horses, helicopters, but police with machine guns, seriously WTF is that all about.
