The Carabao Cup is also known as the EFL or League Cup and this is because only the teams from the four professional divisions in England can take part.
No doubt for the teams in the Championship, League One and League Two, this is a great chance to face opposition in the Premier League and try to perform a big upset.
This isn’t the only cup competition in England, as we also have the FA Cup, and Premier League giants Liverpool came out on top in this tournament in 2021/22.
