The 2017–18 EFL Cup is the 58th season of the EFL Cup. The competition is open to all English and Welsh clubs participating in the Premier League and the English Football League. It is known as the Carabao Cup due to the start of a sponsorship deal with Carabao Energy Drinks after the tournament was unsponsored the previous year. The final will be held at Wembley Stadium, London. The reigning champions are Manchester United. The winners will qualify for the third qualifying round of the 2018–19 UEFA Europa League.

Access

All 92 clubs in the top four divisions of English football participate. In the first round, all the clubs of Football League Two and Football League One will enter alongside 22 of the 24 Football League Championship teams except for Hull City and Middlesbrough who received byes to the next round as the highest finishing teams relegated from the 2016-17 Premier League. In the second round, all Premier League clubs not involved in European competition enter. Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur all received byes to the third round owing to their participation in the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.

In June 2017, The Football League announced that the draw for the first round of the competition would be held in Bangkok, Thailand, as a result of their new sponsorship deal with Thai company Carabao. There were plans for the 2017–18 EFL Cup to trial video assistant referees during matches in their first use in England. However the plans were scrapped due to a delay and would instead be trialled in the 2017–18 FA Cup from the third round instead.

Controversies

Draws

There were a number of errors in the draw for the first round. Many fans experienced problems with the sound on the live stream from Thailand, therefore relying on the graphics. However there were also a number of errors with the graphics: Charlton Athletic were shown to be drawn in two ties, whilst a number of other teams including AFC Wimbledon, Brentford, Swindon Town, Norwich City, Forest Green Rovers, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Yeovil Town were all shown to have been given wrong draws. The English Football League later issued a statement apologising for the errors that had been made and stating that the draw had not been compromised with all clubs receiving confirmation of their ties.

Confusion also arose over the televised portion of the second round draw, in which four second round matches were announced with the incorrect location.

The cup attracted even further criticism for its draws when it was announced that the third round draw would take place at in Beijing at 11:35 China Standard Time (04:15 British Summer Time).
