The 2012 winners failed to qualify for Europe this season and will therefore begin their League Cup campaign against Sky Bet League One side County, who beat Fleetwood in the first round.

Top-flight contenders Sunderland, Norwich and Stoke have respective home games against MK Dons, Bury and Walsall but Southampton must travel north to Barnsley as Crystal Palace go west to Bristol City.

Hull are in London to tackle Leyton Orient while recently-relegated QPR entertain Swindon at Loftus Road and Reading visit Peterborough.

There are local derbies at Doncaster and Burnley, with Leeds and Preston looking for the white and red rose bragging rights, and 2011 winners Birmingham take on Yeovil in Somerset.

The remaining second-round ties see Carlisle host Leicester after their penalty shoot-out victory over Blackburn, Nottingham Forest welcome Millwall, Charlton visit Huddersfield and Tranmere entertain Bolton while Brentford face Derby at Pride Park.

There is an all Championship meeting at Watford when Bournemouth come to town in the week commencing August 26.

Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and current holders Swansea enter at the third-round stage due to their participation in Europe, together with FA Cup winners Wigan who are about to embark on a Europa League campaign despite their relegation from the Premier League.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.
