And although some blockbuster games have been scrapped, including Brentford v Arsenal and Newcastle v Manchester City, Sky’s TV allocation has left fans furious.

The EFL announced two of the 16 games would be broadcast on Sky.

Manchester United v Crystal Palace game has been selected to air on Tuesday 26th September while Newcastle v Man City will be shown on Wednesday 27th September.

Fans took to social media to express their frustration with the selection after lower-division teams were snubbed.

One user commented: “Of course both Manchester teams would be selected 🙄.”

“Honestly the selection isn’t about football and surprises at lower league teams, it’s just about making sure they get as much advertising money as possible during match coverage 👎.”

A second said: “What a surprise to pick two Prem games for the Carabao Cup.”

“Embarrassing TV selection for the cup,” said a third.


A fourth simply replied: “Boring.”

Another ranted: “Do you know that lower division teams compete in cup competitions?”

While a sixth added: “A shocking selection of cup games. You can already see United Palace and City Newcastle twice a season.”

“Why don’t you show Lincoln against West Ham the chance of an upset and money for Lincoln? Shame yourself.”
