Carling Cup draw
Bitter rivals Leeds and Manchester United will face each other in the third round of the Carling Cup.

There is no love lost between the pair, with both clubs having decided to reduce the ticket allocation for away fans in their Premiership matches to reduce the risk of trouble.

Notts County, currently in administration, will be looking for a much-needed financial windfall when they travel to Chelsea.

Blackburn boss Graeme Souness will lock horns with Gerard Houllier again when holders Liverpool visit to Ewood Park - the pair having fallen out after the recent Premiership meeting at Blackburn over a Lucas Neill tackle.

One of the other top ties sees London rivals Tottenham at home to West Ham.
