Carabao Cup draw: Southampton get Brighton, Newcastle at Forest

Southampton will travel to Brighton in the Carabao Cup in the only all-Premier League matchup of the second round.

The 13 top-flight clubs not involved in the Champions League or Europa League enter the cup at this stage, but only south-coast rivals Southampton and Brighton were drawn against each other.

Newcastle face a trip to four-time winners Nottingham Forest, who beat the Magpies at St James' Park in the same stage last year, while West Ham will also travel to play AFC Wimbledon in a London derby.

Crystal Palace and Huddersfield also face tough matchups away to recently relegated clubs Swansea and Stoke City, respectively.
