The Blues enter the competition, which was sponsored by Capital One last season, at this stage with the rest of the Premier League clubs who aren't involved in European competition this season.

Not a bad draw to start with could give the fringe players a go at this one but we must take this competition seriously it's a way into Europe and that's a must if we want to crack on with this new era so the transfer window next summer will bring in the cream

Have we ever played Yeovil before?

Mason Holgate, Davies and Dowell with the rest being full strength should guarantee safe passage and give the young lads some real valuable experience.

Great draw.

Garry, as far as I can see no we haven't.

Shame (for me) that it's not at Huish Park. Yeovil are my local team and most patrons at my local are Yeovil fans

Garry, we played them in a friendly in 2000, winning 0-1.

I was at that match. I think Thomas Gravesen and Gazza both played.

Bloody gutted about the draw as I am based in Yeovil just like Geoff, whose local must be the Arrow?

Let's hope that Koeman takes this game serious. And that he fields a strong team. Put this game to bed. Get a few favourable home ties. And the next thing you know, we are at the business end of this cup yet again. It's about time that we actually won this cup. COYBs

Agree with #2
It's a great draw but one we must take seriously.
I want an Everton team that is brutal and hungry in it's view to winning trophies and beating other teams.
It's fine to put in a couple of untried players to give them experience but let's take advantage of this good draw and put it to bed as soon as possible.
After 20 years with no silverware we should be taking every trophy seriously, we are not in a position to do otherwise!

Scott - this very website has the teams. No Gravesen or Gazza I'm afraid.

No Scott, not in Yeovil, I live in a village called Butleigh near Glastonbury. Local is the Rose & Portcullis, I can recommend it for a pint and a decent meal at a reasonable price

I believe Koeman does take it seriously. Last season I watched Southampton play MK Dons in the 3rd round. He fielded a strong team. Stekelenburg was in goal over Davis. Fonte, Van Dijk, S.Davis, Rodriguez, Long and Mane all started. Bertrand came on second half to make his first appearance after a long injury lay off. Dons were beaten 6-0
