Everton Under-23s have been pitted against Blackburn Rovers, Doncaster Rovers and Sheffield United in the Premier League Cup.
The draw for the group stage of the tournament took place on Monday, with David Unsworth’s side falling in Group B.
The Premier League Cup sees 32 teams split into eight groups of four, with each club playing their opposing sides home and away.
The top two teams from each group then advance to the knockout stages, which are played over one leg with ties going to extra-time and penalties if necessary.
Confirmed dates, kick-off times and venues for Everton’s fixtures will be announced in due course.
