It has been a long night on the second evening of matches in the second round, despite there just being four ties. Two of them have gone to extra time, but we finally have two winners and two Premier League exit. Fulham have overcome Middlesbrough while Accrington have beaten Burnley.

There is no waiting around, we're straight into the draw. Here are the important numbers.

So after two nights of second round ties we reach the moment in the newly-branded English Football League Cup where the Premier league heavyweights enter the competition along with the 25 sides who have already made it this far. All those teams competing in Europe this season, including Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, enter the draw and provide potentially tasty opposition for those sides still alive and kicking.

Among those are Chelsea and Liverpool, both of whom won on Tuesday night. We're just minutes away from the draw so sit back and wait for your team to be drawn from the velvet bag.
