City's dominance has lifted them to seven Carabao Cup triumphs in total, one behind Liverpool for the all-time record. Who prevails this year and, more importantly, how can you tune in?

Watch the Carabao Cup with Foxtel iQ

Foxtel iQ is the only way you can watch content in 4K in Australia, which is a stunning experience for sports fans. However, there are a few items you have to take care of before you can begin watching sport on Foxtel. All users are required to have a subscription to the base Plus package at $49/month, the Sport HD package on top of this is another $25/month, which means you'll be paying $74/month.

This is an easy upgrade for existing customers, but new Foxtel customers will have to consider installation costs and a possible waiting period for install.

Stream Carabao Cup with Foxtel Now

If you like the appeal of Foxtel iQ but were hoping for a cheaper price, then Foxtel Now might be for you. Programs are only available in HD and you're still required to have the Essentials pack but it isn't as costly at a total of $54/month. The platform also still doesn't stack up to Kayo if you just want to compare sports content and viewing features. Foxtel Now has a 10-day free trial for new customers.

History of the Carabao Cup

The 2020/21 Carabao Cup is the 61st season of what is traditionally known as the EFL Cup or the League Cup. Manchester City are the three-time defending champions and are yet again among the favourites to take out the silverware.

Round three is when the Premier League clubs enter the competition. It is also when the Carabao Cup traditionally starts to dish up some surprise results.

Last season, heavyweight EPL clubs Manchester United and Tottenham went to penalties, against League One side Rochdale and League two side Colchester respectively. Things went from bad to worse for Tottenham, who lost on penalties and were knocked out of the tournament.

Carabao Cup competition format

All clubs from the EFL and EPL feature in the competition. Sides compete in a straight knockout format across every round this season. Usually the semi-finals use the home-and-away format, but not this season.

The final is set to be played at London's Wembley Stadium on 28 February, 2021, where the winner qualifies for the following season's Europa League.
