  • The EFL Cup was founded in 1960 and won by Aston Villa in its inaugural edition
  • Manchester United are the reigning champions following their triumph last season

The EFL Cup is the secondary cup competition in England. The 2023/24 edition will begin in August and will conclude with the final at Wembley on February 25. 

The EFL Cup, which is also known as the Carabao Cup and the League Cup, was launched in 1960 by Alan Hardaker, the Football League Secretary at the time.

“It must be obvious to all of you that the time has come to do something, and it is up to the Football League to give the lead,” he said of his hopes to revitalize English soccer. The EFL Cup has been held on an annual basis ever since.

English League Cup Winner 2023

Who Will Win the EFL Cup 2023/24?

Manchester City are the favorites to win the EFL Cup with the best online sportsbooks. They have dominated this competition in recent years, winning six of the last 10 editions - but they fell short in both 2022/23 and 2021/22.

City won a treble of Premier League title, Champions League and FA Cup last season. The strongest side in Europe, it is no surprise they are the favorites to lift the EFL Cup trophy.

If City do not claim the prize, one of Liverpool or Arsenal could capitalize. Newcastle United, Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur will also be targeting glory in this competition.

Who Won the EFL Cup 2022/23?

Manchester United were the winners of the EFL Cup 2022/23. The Red Devils beat Aston Villa, Burnley, Charlton Athletic and Nottingham Forest on their way to the final, where they overcame Newcastle 2-0 thanks to goals from Casemiro and Marcus Rashford.

Newcastle reached the final thanks to their victories over Tranmere Rovers, Crystal Palace, Bournemouth, Leicester City and Southampton prior to the Wembley Stadium showpiece.
