Luis Suarez could return against Manchester United

Luis Suarez could return against Manchester United

The Premier League giants were the first clubs out in the draw and the match could mark Liverpool forward Luis Suarez's return to action after a 10-match ban.

The 26-year-old was handed a 10-match suspension after biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic last season.

Eager to leave Liverpool this summer at one point, it now looks like he may be staying, and his return would obviously add extra interest to an already intriguing tie.

League One Swindon knocked out Championship QPR on Tuesday night and the Robins have been rewarded with a glamorous home tie against Chelsea, while Bristol City, who saw off Crystal Palace, will be away at Southampton.

Swansea lifted the Cup last season and they have been handed a potentially tricky tie at Championship side Birmingham.

Aston Villa will be at home to Spurs while other all-Premier League ties are West Ham against Cardiff, West Brom v Arsenal and Fulham-Everton.

Manchester City have been drawn at home to Wigan and Newcastle's home tie with Leeds could be an interesting encounter.

Capital One Cup third round draw:

Man Utd v Liverpool

Sunderland v Peterborough

West Ham v Cardiff

Man City v Wigan

Burnley v Nottingham Forest

Newcastle v Leeds

Southampton v Bristol City

West Brom v Arsenal

Swindon v Chelsea

Tranmere v Stoke

Watford v Norwich

Aston Villa v Tottenham

Hull v Huddersfield

Leicester v Derby

Birmingham v Swansea

Fulham v Everton

Ties to be played week commencing September 23.

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
