The draw for the fourth round of the competition was announced on their official Twitter account of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.

Ronald Koeman’s side secured a 3-0 victory over Sunderland on Wednesday courtesy of goals from Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Oumar Niasse.
Calvert-Lewin, who has recently been shortlisted for Europe’s Golden Boy award, scored twice for the Toffees and helped his side claim their first win in seven games.
However, despite their victory at Goodison Park, many fans think it’s the end of the road for their team in the competition as supporters feel that there is no way that Everton can beat the Premier League champions in October.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
It was fun while it lasted lads

Ronald Koeman’s side failed to beat Chelsea when the clubs previously met at the end of August as the London outfit secured a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge.
The Merseyside club has had a number of difficult opponents over previous weeks and will no doubt be welcoming Bournemouth on Saturday.
Following their clash against the Cherries, Everton return to the Europa League as they host they second tie in the group stages against Apollon Limassol, and will be hoping for an improved performance after losing 3-0 to Atalanta last week.
