It follows some initial confusion in the draw live on Sky Sports News.

The Eagles travel to Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday, August 19, then they will be back at Selhurst Park a few days later, with ties expected to take place on Tuesday, August 22.

"It's a great game for my players, national television, home tie, crowd will be excited and what an opportunity for them to go and show people what good players they are".

The 13 Premier League clubs who have not qualified for European competitions were in the draw, but City were seeded so couldn't have been drawn against a top-flight side.

Brentford tweeted: "we will be at home to QPR", before following up with "or we might be away, we're not quite sure!".

Newport, a League Two side, beat Southend United, a League One side, 2-0 to secure their place in round 2.

There's a Lancashire derby in the shape of Blackburn v Burnley which is the early contender for tie of the round, whilst there are plenty more derbies on the card.

Following the second round draw on Thursday evening the R's have been paired against local rivals Brentford at Loftus Road.
