The Capital One Cup second round draw was made yesterday and the highlight of the draw has to be Premier League side Liverpool hosting League One side Notts County.

The draw saw a whole host of Championship and Premier League teams enter the competition, except for the six top-flight teams that are in a European competition this season, so that is; Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Swansea City, who will all enter in the next round. Championship side Wigan were also left out of the draw as they are in the Europa League.

Notts County beat Fleetwood Town 3-2 last night and have been rewarded with a trip to Anfield to take on the Premier League outfit.
