The draw for the third round of the Carling Cup takes place on Saturday lunchtime.

Everton are in the hat for the next round of the competition after a comfortable 3-1 victory over Sheffield United on Wednesday evening.

At the third round stage, teams participating in European competition will enter the draw, meaning both Manchester clubs, Tottenham, Arsenal, Spurs, Stoke, Fulham, Chelsea and Birmingham are all potential opponents.

Second round giantkillers MK Dons, Aldershot, Rochdale and old foes Shrewsbury Town are also in the pot.

The draw will commence at approximately 12.15pm (UK time), live on Sky Sports Soccer Saturday.

Everton have the dubious privilege of being ball number 13 for the draw, which will be announced on the official website, Twitter feed and Facebook page as soon as it is made.

Third round matches will be played in the week commencing 19 September.
