Last season’s Premier League top seven have been thrown into the fray as the Carabao Cup enters the third round.

Liverpool’s trip to Norwich and Manchester City’s tie with Wycombe headline Tuesday’s slate, while Everton face a potential banana skin at QPR.

LiveScore preview the five top fixtures from tonight’s action.

Marcelo Bielsa will hope a Carabao Cup tie at Fulham can kickstart Leeds’ inconsistent campaign.

But the Whites face a tough task against Marco Silva’s high-flying Cottagers, who sit second in the Championship despite defeat to Reading on Saturday.

Free-scoring Fulham have netted 18 goals in eight league games, while Leeds have shipped 12 in five top-flight outings — a record only better than Norwich and Newcastle.

But the hosts have only won two of their last 11 games against Leeds and their only other League Cup meeting in 1969 ended up in a 1-0 win for the Yorkshire outfit.

Both sides are expected to make changes at Craven Cottage with the visitors not reaching the fourth round in four years.

Pep Guardiola will give opportunities to Manchester City’s youngsters as League One Wycombe travel to the Etihad.

As well as a growing injury list, City’s next three fixtures see them travel to Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool in a brutal run of games.

But they will not be given an easy time against Gareth Ainsworth’s Chairboys, known for their physical play and never-say-die attitude.

After dropping down from the Championship last season, Wycombe sit fifth in the table and continue to punch above their weight in a league filled with former Premier League clubs.

The last time they faced City was in the old Division Two in the 1998-1999 season when the Buckinghamshire side completed an unlikely double with victories at Adams Park and Maine Road.
