Everton advance in League Cup; Newcastle, Burnley out
Alex Iwobi's first Everton goal helped seal a 4-2 win at third-tier side Lincoln in the League Cup second round yesterday morning (Singapore time)
The Toffees progressed, but two other top-flight clubs - Burnley and Newcastle United - were dumped out at the first hurdle.
Burnley lost 3-1 to third-tier Sunderland, while Newcastle were beaten 4-2 on penalties by Leicester City, who had goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel to thank for saving two spot-kicks.
The all-EPL tie at St James' Park had ended 1-1 in normal time, with Yoshinori Muto levelling for the Magpies after James Maddison scored for the Foxes. - AFP
