Following Tuesday's exciting, scary, fun, unsettling, one-goal win over League One Bristol Rovers, Chelsea were in the hat for tonight's draw for the EFL Cup third round.  This is the round we'd normally be entering this competition, but we're already here this time to welcome the remaining 7 Premier League sides.

Chelsea were last out of the hat and this time there was no confusion like in the draw for the second round.  The Blues will visit the home of the current Premier League champions.  This is probably the biggest tie of the round, so hopefully that means that it will be on broadcast television.

Here's the full draw:
Nottingham Forest vs. Arsenal
Leeds United vs. Blackburn Rovers
QPR vs. Sunderland
West Ham vs. Accrington Stanley
Southampton vs. Crystal Palace
Swansea City vs. Manchester City
Fulham vs. Tammy Abraham's Bristol City
AFC Bournemouth vs. Preston North End
Tottenham Hotspur vs. Gillingham
Everton vs. Norwich City
Derby County vs. Liverpool
Northampton Town vs. Manchester United
Brighton & Hove Albion vs. Reading
Newcastle United vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers
Stoke City vs. Hull City
Leicester City vs. CHELSEA

The matches will take place Tuesday-Wednesday, September 20-21, between the home match against Liverpool and the trip to Arsenal.
