Are you ready for the Capital One Cup? Liverpool's pride and joy is now open for everyone to contest (unless they were knocked out in the first two rounds, which sad), which means some of the European hotshots are getting involved. There are some interesting all-Premier League matchups as well, most notably Manchester United hosting Newcastle on Wednesday, and no fewer than five top-flight teams are guaranteed to be out of the competition by the time Round 3 is over.
