Elsewhere, Accrington Stanley will face Derby or Southampton while Millwall entertain Everton and Manchester City take on Burnley and Crystal Palace entertain Tottenham in another all-Premier League tie.
Holders Chelsea will face Sheffield Wednesday or Luton while Wolves’ reward for their surprise 2-1 victory over Liverpool courtesy of Rúben Neves’s goal is a trip to Shrewsbury or Stoke. – Guardian
