After the excitement of the longest penalty shoot out in League Cup history the night before, the Capital One Cup resumed last night as the remaining six fixtures were decided.

Holders #Manchester City swept aside Sheffield Wednesday with a second half blitz. Going into half time still scoreless, they ran riot after the break to score seven unanswered goals as loanee Frank Lampard and Edin Dzeko both scored twice. Jesus Navas, Yaya Toure (from the penalty spot) and Jose Angel Pozo on debut added to their impressive haul. For the Owls their misery was compounded by the sending off of Kamil Zayatte for the trip on Lampard that resulted in the penalty.

Top of the Championship Nottingham Forest were more than a match for Tottenham for much of their tie at White Hart Lane, with both teams making several changes from the weekend. Many of the Forest fans sported green jumpers to honour their former legendary manager, Brian Clough's demise ten years ago. A first half shot from Forest's Ben Osborn hit the bar in the 22nd minute after a lovely jinking run, demonstrating the confidence they have started the season with. The two time former European Cup winners broke the deadlock just after the hour mark with a goal from Jorge Grant. That seemed to rouse Spurs and aided with the introduction of a couple of subs, they equalized through a Ryan Mason pile driver. An Andros Townsend free kick then almost put them ahead on the night as he rattled the bar in the 76th minute, but it didn't take them long to do so as another Townsend shot was diverted in by Roberto Soldado.

Harry Kane finished the tie off in injury time with a neat finish to make the final score 3-1 in Spurs favour.

Brighton proved too strong for their hosts Burton with a commanding three nil victory seeing them through to the next round. Two first half goals from Rohan Ince and Kazenga Lua Lua put them in command, and the tie was effectively over when Craig Mackail-Smith got a third in the 66th minute. Their bad night was complete when captain Inigo Calderon was sent off two minutes from time, but they will have enjoyed their Cup run after previous victories over Wigan and QPR.



Top of the Premiership #Chelsea had to work for their 2-1 win at home to Bolton despite having 28 shots in the match to their opponents three. Debutant French defender Kurt Zouma put them ahead in the 25th minute but it only took Bolton six minutes to draw level through a Matt Mills header. There was to be no shock though, as Chelsea scored what proved to be the winner ten minutes into the second half with a low, long range strike from Oscar.

Bottom of the Premier league Newcastle United gave their under pressure manager Alan Pardew and their far travelled fans some much needed respite, but needed extra time to beat Crystal Palace 3-2 at Selhurst Park. A Dwight Gayle penalty on 25 minutes opened the scoring for the Eagles, but Emmanuel Riviere brought Newcastle level 11 minutes later. Riviere converted a penalty shortly after the break to put United into a lead that looked to have won the match, only for sub Sullay Kaikai on debut to equalise for Palace in the final seconds to ensure extra time would be required. The Magpies ultimately won the match with a Paul Dummett header in the second period of extra time despite having Mehdi Abeid sent off in the first period. Their 'reward' will be a daunting trip to the Etihad in the next round to face Manchester City.

There was another 3-2 scoreline as West Brom used home advantage to eventually overcome Hull City in an all Premier League affair. The Baggies took the lead through record signing Brown Ideye in the 15th minute but Hull turned the match around either side of the break, Tom Ince drawing them level in the 41st minute and then Robbie Brady putting them in front on 50 minutes. There was still time for a dramatic finale, as West Brom won the game thanks to two goals in the last 4 mins of normal time. First Gareth McAuley vollied in the equalizer and then Saido Berahino scored the winner.

The draw for the last 16 has been made and the following ties will be decided on the week beginning 27th October :

Tottenham v Brighton

Stoke City v Southampton

Bournemouth v West Brom

Shrewsbury v Chelsea

Manchester City v Newcastle United

Liverpool v Swansea City
