Carabao Cup 3rd round draw simulated as Arsenal get horror tie and holders Man Utd will test Gary Neville's loyalty | The Sun
30th August 2023

ARSENAL face a nightmare clash away at Liverpool in SunSport's simulated Carabao Cup draw.

Mikel Arteta's side would face a tough test if they had to travel to Anfield, with both teams making a strong start in the Premier League.

Arsenal have only beat The Reds once in the last seven meetings between the two sides – a 3-2 home win at The Emirates last season.

And they haven't won away to the Reds since September 2012.

Meanwhile, Manchester United have been drawn against lower-league opposition in our simulation – Salford.

The Red Devils' trip to the Peninsula Stadium would be a dream outcome for United legend and Salford co-owner Gary Neville.

The Sky Sports pundit celebrated during commentary as Salford beat Leeds in the previous round, and he spoke about his ambition to play United after the win.

But he refused to reveal which team he would cheer on if the two clubs met in the next round.

Elsewhere in our draw Chelsea have also been given a favourable tie away at Mansfield.

The Blues have to overcome AFC Wimbledon to reach the third round but if they did they would be amongst the favourites to reach the latter stages of the competition.
