After a night of Carabao Cup drama which included stoppage-time winners and penalty shootouts, the third round is starting to shape up.

League Two Leyton Orient, whose shirts are sponsored by Harry Kane, came from 2-0 down to beat Plymouth Argyle 3-2 and will now host Kane’s Tottenham.

Leyton Orient’s winner was scored in the 93rd minute.

Championship Bournemouth will travel to holders Manchester City after a marathon 11-10 penalty shootout win over Premier League Crystal Palace.

City enter the competition at the third-round stage along with other teams who qualified for Europe, including Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United, Leicester, Spurs and Arsenal.

  • Lincoln thrash Bradford to earn Liverpool tie
  • Morecambe win to set up Newcastle tie

There are nine second-round ties to be played across Wednesday and Thursday.

All third-round ties are to be played in the week commencing 21 September 2020.

The final of the 2020-21 Carabao Cup takes place on 28 February 2021 at Wembley.
