EFL Cup round 2 kicks off on 29 August with several teams lined up for action in the competition.

For Kenyans who follow the English Football League, where you can watch the EFL Cup live until the finals early next year at Wembley is an essential question at this point.

While the Carabao Cup doesn't come with an attractive prize compared to other competitions such as the Premier League or FA Cup, lovers of the beautiful game in Kenya never want to miss a moment.

A total of 92 teams will participate in the EFL Cup, so there is every reason to have the best streaming or broadcasting platform keep you abreast with how things unfold going forward.

This post has all the information you need to watch the EPL Cup in Kenya. But first, here are some fun facts ahead of round 2 fixtures this week.

Manchester United are the current EFL Cup title holders

Manchester United cruised to EFL glory when they thrashed Newcastle 2-0 on 26 February 2023.

It was the only silverware for the Red Devils and a title they would want to defend this season.

Millions of Manchester United fans in Kenyan will watch the EFL Cup this season. Most importantly, they would watch to see the club do even better than last season and not just defend the EPL Cup title.

However, with things looking shaky already for Ten Hag's men and a long run of fixtures ahead, including EUFA Champions League matches, fatigue is expected to be an element in United's 2023/24 campaign.

Manchester United have 6 EFL Cup titles, so extending the glory to a further crowing later this season would add to Ten Hag's trophy glories at Old Trafford.

Liverpool hold the most EFL Cup titles

As curtains are drawn open in round 2 of the EFL Cup, Liverpool look ahead to a great season.

The Reds look ahead to a great campaign in the EFL Cup and no doubt the club enjoys huge support from thousands of Kenyans.

Liverpool have a record 9 EFL Cup titles, so bagging a 10th after a troubled 2022/23 campaign would be a huge milestone for Jurgen Klopp and his players.

Klopp's men look promising already after three unbeaten games of 7 points in the Premier League. But can they extend their good run of form to the EPL Cup 2023/24 campaign?

Last season, Liverpool were knocked out of the EPL Cup by Man City after a 3-2 loss in round 4.

While the Citizens did not end up with the EFL trophy despite bagging a treble last season, dyed-in-the-wool Liverpool fans in Kenya hope there will be more progress in the EFL Cup this season.

Several EPL teams slotted in round 2 of the 2023/24 EFL Cup campaign

The round 2 EFL Cup fixtures are out, so even as you get ready to catch all the action in Kenya, we noted that several English Premier League teams join the campaign in round 2.

They include Tottenham, Fulham, Bournemouth, Wolves, Crystal Palace. Brentford, Everton and Sheffield United.

The Nottingham vs Burnley EFL Cup clash on 30th August 2023 is an important encounter, especially for those looking to take advantage of our SportPesa midweek jackpot predictions right here at Goalball Live.

How to watch the EFL Cup in Kenya

Watching the EFL Cup in Kenya should be hassle-free, especially if you have the right information.

Are you ready for round 2 action? Here is how or where Kenyans can watch the EFL Cup this season:

DStv Kenya and DStv Stream app

SuperSport remains a popular broadcaster of EFL Cup matches. As teams gear up for the 64th edition  EFL Cup kick-off, DStv by Superport will showcase every action as it unfolds.

The Fulham vs Tottenham EFL Cup clash on 29th August will be live on SuportSport Premier League on DStv channel 223.

More EFL Cup matches featuring EPL teams will be showcased on the channel as the season unfolds.

If you are not at home by the time EFL action starts, DStv Stream mobile developed by SuperSport is your go-to option for full coverage of round 2 matches and beyond.

GOtv

GOtv is another sports broadcasting television network owned by SuperSport. Fulham vs Tottenham and several other EFL Cup matches will be live on GOtv Kenya.

As a popular sports TV channel, Kenyans looking to watch the 2023/24 EFL Cup fixture should have access to plenty of live matches as soon as round 2 of the tournament begins.

Use a VPN to access EFL Cup streaming platforms in Kenya

While DStv and GOTv are expected to be the main broadcasters of EFL Cup matches in Kenya, you can still navigate your way around go-restricted broadcasters using a VPN.

You can download a good VPN on mobile app stores or an APK file where applicable. You should then be able to watch the matches on ESPN+ and Sky Sports.

Unfortunately, no announcement has been forthcoming from StarTimes Kenya regarding EFL matches which they have always broadcasted live.

For now, watch matches from other leagues such as the Saudi Pro League on StarTimes Kenya as we await the official announcements on other competitions and league cups.
