The draw is still split into north and south at this stage, as was the last round of the competition.

It's worth keeping track of balls 7 and 12 in the north half of the draw as that will produce a tie against Marco Silva's Everton or 2015/16 Premier League champions Leicester City respectively.

Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United will all await the winners of the second round ties as they enter in the third stage of the competition.
