The Carabao Cup will return to our screens almost immediately after the conclusion of the 2022 World Cup.
Liverpool are the current holders of the trophy, though serial winners Manchester City and Erik ten Hag's Manchester United also have dreams of Carabao grandeur this season.
A number of Premier League sides have already been dumped out of the competition as the remaining teams aim to reach the final at Wembley in February.
Here's what you need to know about the fourth round schedule.

The biggest clash of the round will deliver another instalment in the new age rivalry between Manchester City and Liverpool. The Reds are the reigning Carabao Cup champions, though City have dominated the competition in recent years.

A number of Premier League sides will be taking the Carabao Cup seriously due to the reasonable heavyweights who dropped out in the third round. However, given the round begins just two days after the World Cup final, it remains to be seen what shape certain teams will be in.
Man City will fancy their chances of seeing off Liverpool, while tricky away ties await the likes of Brighton, Leicester and Nottingham Forest. Keep your eye on lower-ranked sides Lincoln and Gillingham, who travel to Premier League strugglers Wolves and Southampton respectively.
