How did Leeds reach Round Three?

Leeds United entered the cup during the second round, when they faced Crewe Alexandra at Elland Road.

The League One outfit resisted higher-level opposition for most of the game before Kalvin Phillips broke the deadlock, closely followed by a brace from Jack Harrison to seal an emphatic win for the Whites.

Fulham also entered the competition at the second round, beating fellow Championship side Birmingham City 2-0 to ensure their name went into the hat for the next round.

How are Fulham doing?

Fulham have enjoyed a strong start to the Championship season. Having won five of eight games played so far, Fulham sit in second place, two points behind ex-Fulham boss Scott Parker’s Bournemouth.

What happened last time they met?

Leeds did the double over Scott Parker's Fulham last year.

At Elland Road, the Whites claimed their first win of the season in a dramatic 4-3 win. A brace by Helder Costa helped Leeds go 4-1 up before a Fulham fightback failed to draw them level.

Should Leeds United win on Tuesday, they'll discover their opponents for the fourth round on Wednesday September 22.

The draw will follow the completion of Manchester United v West Ham, the final tie of the round.

Micah Richards and Harry Redknapp will conduct the draw at Potton Bowls Club in Bedfordshire after Arsenal fan Gary Gunn won the EFL's 'Win the Draw' competition and selected the local venue for the draw.

You can watch the draw live on Sky Sports Main Event or Sky Sports Football at around 9.45pm on Wednesday night.
