Leicester City cruised to a 4 - 0 home victory over Fleetwood Town courtesy of goals from Christian Fuchs, Vicente Iborra, Kelechi Iheanacho and Rachid Ghezzal, spread equally across both halves.

Shortly after the last balls were pulled from their perspex bowls in Monaco's Grimaldi Forum, Liverpool were involved in another draw - for the third round of the Carabao Cup.

In the Champions League, which pot Liverpool will find themselves in depends on the final qualifying matches which take place on Wednesday night.

Premier League sides in European competition now join the action to make up the 32 teams in the draw.

Everton welcome Southampton at Goodison Park while holders Manchester City will pay Oxford United a visit.

Arsenal, runners-up to Pep Guardiola's City at Wembley in February, will host Championship Brentford in a London derby.

Each group is made up of four teams - one from each pot - with sides from the same country kept apart.

On the other hand, Stamford Bridge faithful Muhammad Rifky backed Chelsea to blow away Liverpool with "Sarriball", which he believes is a better version of the previously successful "Conteball".

The Blues automatically enter in at this stage of the competition following their finish in the Premier League last season but will be matched with a fellow top six side in this early stage.
