Presumably waiting for the 2nd round results before choosing, if Palace win we may have a chance of being the 4th match, another possibility would be West Ham v Leeds if both win their 2nd round ties.
Liverpool are on the Thursday night so you think sky would have us both on same time ?

Why is everyone getting upset with Sky for not showing our game ... when they haven't even picked the ties for our (third) round yet?

The only thing that has been confirmed is that we'd play on Thursday, which makes sense because we have league games on Monday before and Sunday after so the most logical choice of day. Would inconvenience our opponents whoever that is with this scheduling but hey ho, let their fans complain about that.

To clarify, the only thing that was announced was that out of the 32 ties in the second round (being played this midweek) Sky would show 4 instead of the usual 2 games live. Same would apply in next two rounds till we get to quarter finals ... previously Sky would show only 2 games each round till the Final, this year they've changed to 4 every round so that covers all games from QF onwards stage.

Till then, in next three rounds, rounds 2, 3 and 4 when there are 32, 16 and 8 ties being played, Sky is showing 4 of them LIVE and ALL the rest would be available via Sky/Carabao Cup website to stream for £10 each. Because there would be no fans allowed this is for this season only so this speial arrangement has been made and all revenue from those TV passes is split between the two playing clubs (like normal game tickets would be) ...

Sky has picked 4 games for round 2, which are as follows:

Tuesday 15 September
Burton Albion v Aston Villa - 7:45pm

Wednesday 16 September
West Bromwich Albion v Harrogate Town - 6pm
Everton v Salford City - 8:15pm

Thursday 17 September
Brighton & Hove Albion v Portsmouth - 7:45pm

Now once this round is over and we actually know what the next 16 ties are for round 3, maybe we should all calm down and not blame Sky for not showing us, when they haven't even picked ANY ties for that round yet.

And if Sky doesn't pick us ... highly unlikely, as due to our league fixtures, we'd be playing on Thursday and most other ties would be played on Tue/Wed so like Sky has chosen 4 games over all three days Tue/Wed/Thu in this round, it's very likely that we would be the live game on Thursday ... but still, if Sky doesn't pick us then you have the option of paying £10 on Carabao's website on Sky's and watch the game live and £5 of that would be going straight to City and other £5 to the team we play against ...

PS. No, I don't work for Sky or own any shares in the company ... I just thought would clarify what the actual situation is before people going on reading something somewhere and just basing their comments on that ...
I’ve already read on the OS that our game will NOT be shown live on Sty.
