Brentford suffered a shock exit to League Two side Gillingham on penalties, even though Thomas Frank named a fairly strong side including the likes of Ivan Toney, David Raya and Rico Henry.

Elsewhere, Frank Lampard’s Everton endured a miserable evening on the south coast, as Bournemouth thumped the visitors 4-1 ahead of the pair’s Premier League clash this weekend.

Lincoln caused an upset against Championship outfit Bristol City, who fell to a 3-1 defeat, and Leicester cruised to a comfortable 3-0 win against Newport County.

A late equaliser from Charlton helped the visitors edge past Stevenage of penalties, while Burnley came from behind to beat Crawley Town 3-1.

Finally, MK Dons played out a comfortable 2-0 victory against Morecambe.

Good evening!

Manchester City take on Chelsea in the Carabao Cup this evening, in what promises to be one of the most enthralling clashes of the third round.

With Graham Potter keen to turn the tide and knock out the eight-time Carabao Cup winners.

It should be a cracker – stay tuned for all the build-up and match action throughout the clash!
