Arsenal will face Championship outfit West Bromwich Albion in the second round of the Carabao Cup later in August.

With no European football this season, the Gunners enter the competition a round earlier alongside the rest of the top flight's teams who aren't competing in Europe and face a trip to the Hawthorns at this early stage.

Other notable ties include two all-Premier League clashes between Watford and Crystal Palace, and Newcastle and Burnley, and Everton's trip to Huddersfield. The ties are due to be played in the week commencing August 23.

The clubs that are involved in the Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League will enter the competition in the third round.

Manchester City won the trophy for an eighth time last season, defeating Tottenham 1-0 at Wembley thanks to Aymeric Laporte's late strike.
