EFL CUP RESULT 27/10/21: Holders City dumped out by Westham, as Liverpool, Leicester and others progress
Westham 0-0 Manchester City (Westham wins 5-3 on penalties)
Holders Manchester City were knocked out of the Carabao Cup after West Ham United won 5-3 on penalties in front of a sell-out crowd at London Stadium.
The fourth-round tie had ended goalless after 90 minutes before Said Benrahma scored the decisive spot-kick.
Phil Foden fired his penalty wide to give the Hammers the advantage in the shootout.
It is the first time since 2016 City, who have won the competition for the past four seasons, have been eliminated.
Leicester 2-2 Brighton (Leicester wins 4-2 on pens)
Leicester edged Brighton on penalties to reach the Carabao Cup quarter-finals after an entertaining game finished 2-2 at the King Power Stadium.
Neal Maupay’s penalty hit the crossbar and Enock Mwepu’s effort was saved by Danny Ward to send the Foxes through.
Harvey Barnes had opened the scoring early on before a dramatic end to the first half saw two goals in added time.
Adam Webster poked in but Ademola Lookman put the Foxes back in front, before Mwepu levelled again on 71.
It was the midfielder’s first goal for the Seagulls, as he looped a header into the corner – but the celebrations turned to disappointment after penalties.
Maupay was the first to miss from the spot, hammering his effort against the bar, before Ward got down smartly to save Mwepu’s low kick and book Leicester a spot in the last eight.
Preston 0-2 Liverpool
Second-half goals from Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi secured Liverpool’s place in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals at the expense of a resolute Preston North End side at Deepdale.
Japan striker Minamino, who scored twice in his side’s 3-0 win over Norwich City in the previous round, finished neatly from Neco Williams’ cross to end the Championship outfit’s stubborn resistance after 62 minutes.
Origi, who also netted in the previous round, then produced a brilliant finish with his heel to put the result beyond doubt six minutes from time with Jurgen Klopp naming an entirely different Liverpool side to the one which thrashed Manchester United 5-0 on Sunday.
Burnley 0-1 Tottenham
Substitute Lucas Moura headed the winner as Tottenham beat Burnley at Turf Moor to book their place in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals.
An unmarked Moura, who replaced Bryan Gil in the first half, nodded Emerson Royal’s delivery into the ground and beyond Clarets goalkeeper Nick Pope.
It was a welcome victory for Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo, whose side had lost their past two games.
Stoke City 1-2 Brentford
Brentford reached the Carabao Cup quarter-finals for the second successive season after winning at Championship side Stoke City for the first time.
Last season’s semi-finalists went ahead when Ivan Toney set up Sergi Canos to drill home following a corner.
Toney followed up his assist with a goal of his own as the forward made it three for the season when he slotted home from 12 yards for a much-changed Brentford side.
Stoke knocked out Watford in the previous round but were unable to add a second Premier League scalp, despite reducing the deficit through a fine finish from the edge of the box by former Bees player Romaine Sawyers.
The quarter-final draw will take place on Saturday, 30 October at 10:30 BST.
