On Tuesday Arsenal and Leeds, among others, secured their tickets to the English League Cup quarter-finals. This Wednesday, other big clubs were on the bill, with a nice West Ham – Manchester City in particular. A duel that ended with a score of 0-0 parity, and the Hammers won in the penalty shootout. Phil Foden had missed the first try for the Skyblues, while the Londoners converted their five attempts. A first failure for Pep Guardiola and his men this season.
Tottenham assured Burnley with a goal from Lucas Moura (1-0), just as Liverpool did the job at Preston North End (2-0), with Minamino and Origi who took advantage of their opportunity to shake the nets. Leicester took Brighton out at TàB after a 2-2 at the end of 90 minutes, so Brentford knocked out Stoke 2-1 and will therefore see the quarter-finals of the competition.
