Fleetwood Town triumphed over Championship opposition in the first round of this season's Carabao Cup when they beat Wigan Athletic at home. Ged Garner headed home the only goal of the game after 24 minutes, with Danny Andrew hitting the post when it looked like he might have doubled the League One side's lead. The Cod Army survived a late scare when Tom Pearce found Stephen Humphrys on the edge of the six-yard box but the Wigan striker fluffed his finish. 

Scott Brown has made no fewer than six changes to the side that drew 0-0 with Derby on Saturday, with Jakub Stolarczyk, Brendan Wiredu, Joe Garner, Cian Hayes, Carl Johnston and Drew Baker all starting.

Everton only managed to reach the third round of the Carabao Cup last season. The Toffees edged past Huddersfield in the second round, despite having a man sent off on the hour, with Andros Towsend scoring the winner after Tom Lees had cancelled out Alex Iwobi's opener. They were knocked out on penalties after a 2-2 draw with QPR at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium in the following round.

Only four players who started Everton's 1-1 draw with Forest on Saturday are involved from the start tonight: Nathan Patterson, Tom Davies, Alex Iwobi and Salomón Rondón. Amadou Onana and Ruben Vinagre, who are both recent arrivals on Merseyside, make their debuts here. Chelsea target Anthony Gordon is on the bench.

Kick-off is at 7:45pm BST (2.45pm ET) today, Tuesday 23rd August. Read on to find out on how to watch a Fleetwood Town vs Everton live stream, wherever you are in the world, on TV, online and on mobile.

EFL Cup football fans in the US can watch a Fleetwood Town vs Everton live stream on ESPN Plus.

The service is home to Carabao Cup football for the 2022/23 season along with FA Cup action, football from around the world and a host of other sports. It costs $6.99 per month and there are no long contracts. You can cancel at any time.

Of course, ESPN Plus is only available within the States so be sure to use a VPN (opens in new tab) if you're a US subscriber stuck abroad. We recommend ExpressVPN as it's reliable and comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee.

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Fleetwood Town vs Everton live stream rights holders, you won't be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are easy to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee.
