EFL Cup last 16 round up

Goals Galore

It was a thrilling couple of days of EFL Cup action and no less than 32 goals across the eight last 16 matches.

Two penalty shootouts and a ten goal thriller at Anfield were just some of the highlights from the two days of action.

Tuesday

Manchester City eased into the Quarter-Finals with a routine 3-1 victory at home to the struggling Southampton. Pep Guardiola fielded a strong side, including Sergio Aguero who netted twice after Nicolas Otamendi's opener. The Spaniard is seeking to win the League Cup for a third time in a row and if City's starting eleven is anything to go by, they have every intention of doing just that.

Everton relieved some of the pressure on Marco Silva by booking their place in the last eight. The toffees left it late but two goals in the last 20 minutes was enough to see off Watford 2-0 whilst the all League One encounter between Oxford and Sunderland needed penalties, which were won 4-2 by Oxford after a 1-1 draw in 90 minutes.

Manchester City EFL Cup

It was an easy enough night for Leicester too, who followed up their 9-0 hammering of Southampton with a 3-1 away win at Burton Albion. Goals from Kelechi Iheanacho, Youri Tielemans and James Maddison meant a third successive quarter-final.

Colchester will be the lowest rank side left in the last eight. The League two side beat fellow League two counterparts Crawley 3-1 away from home, sending the U's into the quarter-finals for just the second time in their history.

Wednesday

Anfield saw a thriller as a weakened Liverpool side beat Arsenal 5-4 on penalties after a crazy 90 minutes saw the two sides play out a 5-5 draw.

After Liverpool went 1-0 up the Gunners quickly responded, going 3-1 up and then had leads of 4-2 and then 5-4.

Unai Emery's men thought they'd won it but a 94th minute Divock Origi goal sent the game to penalties.

The game saw two wonder strikes from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joe Willock and Arsenal will be wondering how they didn't progress against a Liverpool side that made 11 changes from the game against Spurs.

Elsewhere, Manchester United ended Chelsea's run of seven wins in a row.

Marcus Rashford converted a first half penalty and an amazing second half free kick in between Michy Batshuai's strike to send Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's men into the last eight.

The other game on the night saw Aston Villa edge the Midlands derby, beating Wolves 2-1 at Villa Park.

Anwar El Ghazi and Ahmed Elmohamady's goals were enough to see Dean Smith's side through.
