Everton will host Sheffield United at Goodison Park in the Carling Cup second round.

Everton last faced The Blades in March 2007, when a Mikel Arteta penalty brought the score level to 1-1 to rescue a point at Bramall Lane.

Mikel Arteta was also on the scoresheet, along with James Beattie in a 2-0 win in the most recent encounter between the two clubs at Goodison Park in October 2006.

Ties are scheduled for the week commencing August 22.
