League Cup: Reds advance as United crash out


Jurgen Klopp got his first win as manager of Liverpool as the Reds beat Bournemouth 1-0 in the League Cup. Nathaniel Clyne’s first goal since signing in the summer proved to be the difference, as Liverpool set up a quarter final tie at Southampton, who won 2-1 at home to Aston Villa. Meanwhile, Manchester United joined Arsenal and Chelsea as surprise, fourth-round losers, going out to Championship side Middlesborough on penalties, after 120 minutes of action at Old Trafford failed to produce a goal.There wasn’t a problem finding the net on the other side of Manchester, as City romped to a 5-1 win over Crystal Palace, with five different scorers for the hosts. City will now face Hull, who knocked out Leicester on Tuesday. The other last-eight ties see Stoke, conquerors of Chelsea, take on Sheffield Wednesday, who beat Arsenal 3-0, and Middlesborough host Everton, who overcame Norwich.
