About England - League Cup
The English Football League Cup (EFL Cup) is a football knockout tournament, played each year by all English football teams ranked in the top leagues in the country (English Premier League, English Championship, League 1 and League 2).
The Football League Cup is one of the three top domestic tournaments in England, alongside the FA Cup and the Premier League. The competition’s first edition was played back in the 1960-1961 season, with Aston Villa being the first club to win it.
The tournament is divided in seven rounds, being played mostly with a single-leg format until the semi-final stage of the competition. Top tier teams are handed byes to enter the tournament until the later stages, in order to facilitate their road to the final, which is always played at Wembley Stadium.
Liverpool is the most successful team in the competition, having won eight trophies up to this date. Aston Villa and Chelsea have won the competition five times. Last season, Manchester City defeated Liverpool to earn their fourth EFL Cup title in history.
