Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United have all been handed home ties in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

But Queens Park Rangers face a trip to the north west coast to take on Blackpool.

North London neighbours Arsenal and Spurs enter the competition at this stage due to their involvement in the Europa and Champions League respectively and have fielded weakened sides in previous years.

The Gunners will entertain Brentford at the Emirates, while Spurs take on Watford, who they visit in the Premier League this weekend.

The Hammers booked their place in round three with a come-from-behind 3-1 win at League One side Wimbledon on Tuesday, thanks to goals from Issa Diop, Angelo Ogbonna and Javier Hernandez.

And Manuel Pellegrini’s men will now play host to Macclesfield at the London Stadium, while QPR hit the road after beating Peterborough United (2-0) and Bristol Rovers (3-1) at Loftus Road in previous rounds.

Ties are set to be played during the week commencing Monday September 24.

Third round draw: West Brom v Crystal Palace, Arsenal v Brentford, Burton Albion v Burnley, Wycombe v Norwich, Oxford United v Manchester City, West Ham v Macclesfield, Millwall v Fulham, Liverpool v Chelsea, Bournemouth v Blackburn, Preston v Middlesbrough, Wolves v Leicester, Tottenham v Watford, Blackpool v QPR, Everton v Southampton, Manchester United v Derby, Nottingham Forest v Stoke.
