Cobblers have been handed a dream draw in the third round of the EFL Cup, with Manchester United coming to Sixfields next month.

Jose Mourinho will bring his team to Northampton in the week commencing September 19.

Sky Bet League One side Cobblers beat West Brom in the second round on penalties at Sixfields on Tuesday night and will now hope to grab another Premier League scalp.

The last time the two teams met was in January 2004, when United secured a 3-0 win at Sixfields in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
