England Premier Leage giants Manchester United went through to the Carabao Cup Quarter Finals due to a brace friom twenty-four-year-old Jesse Lingard who stood out as on target to beat the Swans 2-0 in an otherwise dull EFL Cup match. Swansea City suffered their fifth defeat in six games, while the Red Devils put aside their shock Premier League defeat at Huddersfield to secure the crucial win the holders needed to compete again on the Road to the Carabao Cup title.

Bournemouth defeated Middlesbrough 3-1 at the Vitality Stadium, while Championship Club Bristol City won 4-1 against Crystal Palace at Ashton Gate. Leicester City defeated Leeds 3-1 at the King Power Stadium. Arsenal’s match against Norwich went to extra time, finishing one apiece after 90 minutes. At the Etihad Stadium, the final score was Manchester City 4-1 Wolves as Man City won on penalties. Manchester City superstar goalie Claudio Bravo’s two penalty saves helped City go past Wolverton in the shootout. Hero of the Match Bravo knocked a hard-fighting Wolves out of the EL Cup in the penalty shootout before City’s superstar striker Sergio Agüero’s chipped a decicive spot-kick after Bravo had first saved Alfred N’Diaye’s effort to his right, and Conor Coady’s to his left. Agüero went into the EFL Cup clash hoping to claim a club-record 178th goal but was unable to convert several chances. Kun’s penalty was a consolation. On Wednesday, titan Premier League clubs Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur won their ties to go through knocking out Everton and West Brom respectively.
