FA Cup
Fulham will face Southampton at Craven Cottage in the Second Round of the Carabao (League) Cup in the week commencing the 26th August, exact date to be confirmed.

The draw, which saw the inclusion of the 13 Premier League clubs who are not competing in European competitions, as well as Championship sides Cardiff and Fulham, was once again regionalised into North and South sections.

The last time Fulham faced Southampton was last season in the Premiership.

We played them home and away, winning the home game 3-2, our first Premiership win of the season, and losing the away fixture 2-0.

Fulham and Southampton last met in the League Cup way back in 1998 When we drew 1-1 at the Cottage, Chris Coleman scored, and won 1-0 away at St Mary's, Dirk Lehmann scored, and the team was Taylor, Coleman, Symons, Uhlenbeek (Neilson 88), Brevett, Morgan, Collins (Trollope 65), Hayward, Bracewell, Beardsley, Lehmann.

A certain ambitious M Hughes was playing for Southampton at the time.

Southampton have just avoided relegation for the last two Premiership seasons, 16th in 2018/19 and 17th in 2017/18, and started this season with a 3-0 away defeat at Burnley.

Nottingham Forest will face Derby in the second round of the Carabao Cup, while Leicester will visit Newcastle.

Leicester, managed by Brendan Rodgers, were beaten by eventual champions Manchester City in the quarter-finals last season and meet Steve Bruce's Newcastle in the only all-Premier League meeting.

Elsewhere, Everton face a difficult assignment against Lincoln who have enjoyed good cup success in previous years, including their run to the FA Cup quarter-finals in 2016/17.

Newport will host two-time runners-up West Ham, while fellow League Two side Forest Green Rovers will travel to Bournemouth after respective penalty shoot-out victories against Gillingham and Charlton.

Leeds, who defeated Salford 3-0 on Tuesday, were drawn at home against Stoke as Premier League clubs Watford, Crystal Palace, Burnley and Sheffield United will all play at home against Coventry, Colchester, Sunderland and Blackburn.

Norwich will travel to face Crawley while Aston Villa, who were also promoted to the Premier League last season, will also face League Two opposition at Crewe.

Clubs competing in Europe during the 2019-20 season will finally enter the Carabao Cup in round three.
