The League One side cruised into the third round of the competition with a 5-0 away thrashing of Bradford last night and will now welcome the Premier League champions to Sincil Bank, with the fixture due to be played on 22 or 23 September – most likely the latter as the Reds play Chelsea in the league on Sunday 20th.

Although the Merseysiders have won the competition eight times, more than any other club, the last of those came in 2012 (as per TransferMarkt), while in recent years they have tended to treat it as low priority. Following consecutive third round exits in 2017 and 2018, they reached the quarter-finals last season.
