The 2018–19 EFL Cup was the 59th season of the EFL Cup. Also known as the Carabao Cup for sponsorship reasons, the competition was open to all 92 clubs participating in the Premier League and the English Football League. The first round was played on 14 August 2018, ten days after the start of the Football League season.[1] Manchester City successfully defended their title,[2] their first step in becoming the first English team to complete a domestic treble for the football season, as they later won the 2018–19 Premier League and the 2018–19 FA Cup. The final was held at Wembley Stadium in London on 24 February 2019.[3]

Format[edit]

In June 2018, it was announced that there would be a number of changes to the competition after a vote by all of the English Football League clubs at their annual EFL Summer Conference in Portugal.[4][5] Extra time would be scrapped for all rounds except for the final with the tie progressing straight to a penalty shoot-out in the event of a draw after 90 minutes.[6] This was introduced in order to reduce "additional fatigue issues".[6] The ABBA penalty system trial would also be scrapped and the format for a penalty shoot-out would return to the ABAB format.[6] Seeding was removed for the first two rounds however the first two rounds remained organised on a regional basis.[6] Video assistant referees (VAR) were also authorised for use at matches played at Premier League club grounds.[6]

Access[edit]

All 92 clubs in the Premier League and English Football League entered the season's EFL Cup. Access was distributed across leagues.[7]

In the first round, the draw was regionalised into northern and southern clubs with 22 Championship clubs and all League One and League Two clubs entering in this round.[7]

The following round, the two remaining Championship clubs Swansea City and Stoke City (who finished 18th and 19th respectively in the 2017–18 Premier League season), and the Premier League clubs not involved in either the Champions League or Europa League entered.[7]

Arsenal, Burnley, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur all received byes to the third round owing to their participation in European competitions.[8]

The first round draw was held on 15 June 2018 in Vietnam.[7] The second round draw was held on 16 August 2018 in England, drawn by Mick McCarthy and Chris Waddle.[9]
