As it happened

  1. 2243: 

    Anyway, after a shedload of goals, controversial moments, Cupsets, near-Cupsets, penalty shoot-outs, Aaron Ramsey braces and a Kolo Toure groin strain, we're calling it a night.

    I'm off to a house party with Ricardo Vaz Te. Goodnight!

  2. 2241: 

    England international Zat Knight there Josh...

    GET INVOLVED

    Carl Steen: Special mention to Tranmere. Not played well this season, beat Bolton on penalties with only four subs named on the bench!

    Josh Hargreaves: The joys of being a Bolton fan. Despair. Trauma. Gut wrenching pain. Agony. Embarrassment. Humiliation. Shattered hopes. Zat Knight as captain

  4. 2236: 
    INJURY NEWS

    Back on the European front, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has ruled striker Lukas Podolski out of action for approximately three weeks with a hamstring injury. All the more reason to dip into the transfer funds Arsene...

  5. 2235: 

    That penalty from Fulham's Bryan Ruiz has to be seen to be believed. It hit the inside of the post, came back out and would have bounced clear until it hit Burton keeper Dean Lyness on the backside. As lucky as you can possibly get!

  6. 2234: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Dan Burgin: Really shouldn't be this ecstatic about Fulham beating Burton Albion on penalties. Bryan Ruiz you lucky, lucky boy.

    Matt Smith: We've never had it easy Fulham fans. Into the next round we go! Nothing is different....still two players short.

    Elliot Homer: For Burton to take Fulham, a Premiership side which includes Bent, Parker, Ruiz, Hanglaand, Riise and Taarabt to penalties, shows how far they've come.

  7. 2233: 
    Burton 2-2 Fulham - Fulham win on pens

    BBC Sport's Owen Phillips reports: "Stunning cup tie. Twists and turns all the way and all were richly entertained. Standing ovation from the home fans at the end, Huge, huge relief for Fulham. Brilliant fun."

  8. 2233: 
    Jonathan Overend at The Hawthorns for BBC Radio 5Live:

    "The best away fans of the night, full credit to Newport County's following. They lost 3-0 but are still singing and their players have just thrown their shirts to the travelling supporters. "

    Jacqui Oatley watching Hull City's win at Leyton Orient, BBC Radio 5 live

    "Robbie Brady showed his team mates how it was done. He was only on the field one minute and he spun to finish smartly. Orient offered immense commitment all night, only the finish was lacking."

    GET INVOLVED

    Nikhil Patel: Score two goals. Comfortable most of the game. Hit the post three times, Concede two goals. Go down to 10 men and score two again. Liverpool are funny.

    Sumeer Rawal: Hoping that we can shake off the minor injuries and tired legs by the Sunday! Bring on Man Utd.

  11. 2232: 
    PENALTY SHOOT-OUTS

    Just to confirm then,

    Fulham, Tranmere and Birmingham go through after winning their penalty shoot-outs tonight. Crazy scenes.

  12. 2231: 
    BEST OF THE REST

    Tranmere are in dire form in League One, but they inflict a third loss in a row on hotly-tipped Championship outfit Bolton as they triumph on penalties after the game finished 1-1.

    Birmingham go through to round three in a bad-tempered game at Huish Park against Yeovil after they win the shootout. The match finishes in suitably dramatic fashion as Tom Adeyemi's effort trickles in after Wayne Hennessey pushed onto the crossbar.

  13. 2227: 

    Hard lines on Jack Dyer - the only man to miss.

  14.  
    SCORES!- Burton 4-5 Fulham - John Arne Riise

    Smashed straight down the middle to send Fulham into the third round.

  15.  
    SCORES!- Burton 4-4 Fulham - Chris Hussey

    Casual finish but does the job to keep Burton alive.

  16.  
    SCORES!- Burton 3-4 Fulham - Hugo Rodallega

    Stuttered run-up, keeper gets a hand to it, but the ball goes in.

  17.  
    SCORES!- Burton 3-3 Fulham - Damien McCrory

    Classy finish into the top-right corner. Keeper no chance.

  18.  
    SCORES!- Burton 2-3 Fulham - Sascha Riether

    The German steers his kick into the corner beyond the keeper. Advantage Fulham.

  19.  
    SAVED!- Burton 2-2 Fulham - Jack Dyer

    Stockdale saves to his left! Despair for Dyer - the first to miss.

  20.  
    SCORES!- Burton 2-2 Fulham - Bryan Ruiz

    Left-footed, hits the post, hits the keeper on the bottom and goes in. Lucky, lucky, lucky.

  21.  
    SCORES!- Burton 2-1 Fulham - Adam Reed

    Another cool finish sends the keeper the wrong way. Low into the corner too.

  22.  
    SCORES!- Burton 1-1 Fulham - Darren Bent

    Thumping right-footer over the keeper's dive.

  23.  
    SCORES!- Burton 1-0 Fulham - Michael Symes

    Calmly sends the keeper the wrong way with a low, composed finish.

  24. 2221: 
    BEST OF THE REST

    Both Football League-only ties, between Tranmere and Bolton and the controversial clash between Yeovil and Birmingham, have gone to penalties.

  25. 2219: 
    PENALTY SHOOT-OUT- Burton 2-2 Fulham

    Burton to go first

  26. 2219: 
    FULL-TIME- Liverpool 4-2 Notts County
  27. 2218: 

    I'll bring you full coverage of the shoot-out at Burton - hang on.

  28. 2216: 
    FULL-TIME- Burton 2-2 Fulham

    We go to penalties then...

  29. 2214: 
    BEST OF THE REST

    The action in Yeovil versus Birmingham is as heated on the pitch as it is on the touchline, with the sides exchanging extra-time goals to make it 3-3.

    Luke Ayling had put the hosts at Huish Park ahead in an extraordinary game with a thunderous 20-yard strike.

    Aware of his side equalising within 90 minutes through a controversial Byron Webster strike when Colin Doyle had sportingly put the ball out of play, Yeovil manager Gary Johnson told his side to let Lee Novak walk through and score at the start of the second half of extra-time for Birmingham.

  30. 2214: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Steven Jerjian: I was looking forward to thumping Liverpool win to boost confidence for Sunday, now just want to get through with no more injuries!

    Mohit Pasricha: WHAT A GOAL. Henderson, take a bow son. Surely this is done now?

    Jordan Spragg: Jordan Henderson looking comfortable in a Liverpool shirt. However he must show it in the big time to justify price tag for me.

  31. 2214: 
    FULL-TIME- Leyton Orient 0-1 Hull

    Hull are through.

  32. 2213: 

    What a finale at Burton...

  33. 2211: 
    GOAL- Burton 2-2 Fulham - Hugo Rodallega (117 mins)

    Bang! Penalty area pinball after Scott Parker's deflected shot hits the crossbar, it falls for Hugo Rodallega and he hammers the ball into the roof of the net. Fulham are saved!

  34. 2210: 
    Liverpool 4-2 Notts County

    Liverpool may be through now but you have to feel this isn't the best preparation for a meeting with Manchester United on Sunday.

  35. 2208: 
    GOAL- Liverpool 4-2 Notts County - Jordan Henderson (110 mins)

    That should be that. It's a cracking goal as well for Liverpool, Jordan Henderson running powerfully from midfield, nutmegging the last man and side-footing into the corner, from 16 yards.

  36. 2207: 
    Arsenal 2-0 Fenerbahce

    Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger on signing new players: "I don't know what to say anymore. I've said it all before. We want now to prepare for the next game and leave all the rest. We work hard on it and we do the maximum."

  37. 2206: 
    Latest scores

    There are 13 minutes or so left of tonight's action.

    Notts County now trail Liverpool 3-2, Burton are 2-1 up at home to Fulham, Hull are 1-0 up at Leyton Orient, it's Yeovil 3-3 Birmingham and Tranmere and Bolton are at 1-1.

    Penalties coming somewhere you feel....

  38. 2205: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan: Wenger deserves so much credit because it's remarkable how good Arsenal play when you consider how few pennies they spend.

    Job Kamau: Great result for Arsenal. Now onto signing new players.

  39. 2205: 
    Arsenal 2-0 Fenerbahce

    Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger on Aaron Ramsey: "He's playing his best football, because he's improving every year. He's a youngster and he's getting better and better. Confidence [is the difference], it's as simple as that. [For the second goal] a year ago he would have controlled the ball or mis-controlled it but he works hard on his technique. Maybe he feels more comfortable because he feels people trust him."

  40. 2204: 

    That was harsh on Notts County, their penalty shout looked a decent one but Liverpool countered rapidly.

  41. 2201: 
    GOAL- Liverpool 3-2 Notts County - Daniel Sturridge (105 mins)
    Daniel Sturridge

    ...And from the penalty appeal which was waved away Liverpool counter to score at the Kop end, Daniel Sturridge wriggling away from his marker on the left-hand side of the penalty area to fire in a low shot which evades goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski and creeps in.

  42. 2200: 
    PENALTY APPEAL- Liverpool 2-2 Notts County

    Notts County want a penalty at Anfield! It's end-to-end stuff...

  43. 2159: 
    Burton 2-1 Fulham
    Michael Symes

    BBC Sport's Owen Phillips reports: "Incredible given what went on for 75 minutes here. Michael Symes showed superb desire to win that header and that's exactly what the last 30 mins has been all about. The Brewers just kept going. I wouldn't fancy being on the end of Martin Jol's post-match team talk - even if Fulham come back. He is one far from happy camper. Fifteen to go and the home crowd are all up on their feet applauding."

  44. 2158: 
    GOAL- Leyton Orient 0-1 Hull - Robbie Brady (109 mins)

    He's been on the pitch for one minute, but Republic of Ireland winger Robbie Brady fires in Liam Rosenior's cross.

  45. 2157: 
    Arsenal 2-0 Fenerbahce

    Arsenal goalscorer Aaron Ramsey: "I'm enjoying myself at the moment. After the injury I had, it takes time to get over it, mentally as well, but I'm over that now and showing people what I'm capable of."

  46. 2156: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Former Team GB Heptathlete Kelly Sotherton: Now that Arsenal are in the Champions League, are we going to sign anyone before Sunday? Answers on a postcard.

    England seam bowler Stuart Broad: Arsenal have won 3 out of 4 this season and are in the Champions League, yet all they do is get nailed by people. I just don't get it. Weird.

  47. 2155: 

    So we have five games in extra-time altogether. Hold on to your hats.

  48. 2154: 
    BEST OF THE REST

    There are two all-Football League ties playing extra time.

    Bolton were hotly-tipped for promotion to the Premier League, but their disappointing start to the season continues as they remain locked at 1-1 with a Tranmere team who are currently enduring an awful start in League One.

    The other tie sees a furious Birmingham playing out a 2-2 draw with Yeovil. Lee Clark and his players raced to argue with the home side's staff after Byron Webster equalised from a pass-back when goalkeeper Colin Doyle kicked the ball out for an injury.

  49. 2153: 
    Liverpool 2-2 Notts County

    Liverpool are down to 10 men for the remainder of the game as Kolo Toure leaves the field on a stretcher. This is not going to plan at all for Brendan Rodgers. Someone get Jamie Carragher out of retirement...

  50. 2152: 
    GOAL- Burton 2-1 Fulham - Michael Symes (102 mins)

    The Cupset-ometer is through the roof! Chris Hussey does the damage down the left, standing up a cross which Michael Symes meets with a textbook downward header, right into the corner.

  51. 2152:  
    Robbie Savage, BBC Radio 5 live

    Robbie Savage: What a great manager Di Canio is. Must have been ketchup in the water bottles !!! Hahahaha 2-0 down 4-2 up.

  52. 2151: 
    Liverpool 2-2 Notts County

    The night gets worse for Liverpool. They've already used all three subs and now Kolo Toure is down holding his groin.

  53. 2150: 

    An incredible late turnaround from Sunderland. The League Cup has delivered tonight.

  54. 2150: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Steven Broadbent: The pressure was on Paolo Di Canio for the first time in a while and he delivered. He is a top manager who deserves time.

    Andrew Priestley: Hats off to Di Canio and Sunderland tonight. The writing looked like it was on the wall and I had written them off.

    Shohidur Rahman: That is a huge win for Sunderland, Di Canio needed that. Don't know how MK Dons lost that though.

  55. 2149: 
    BEST OF THE REST

    Peterborough secure one of the result of the night as they complete a 6-0 thumping of Championship Reading thanks to a long-range strike from Jack Payne.

    There is more embarrassment for a Championship side, with Queens Park Rangers falling to a 2-0 home defeat to Swindon. The R's laid siege to the visitor's goal throughout the second half as they went for an equaliser, but were stung by a late Alex Pritchard effort.

  56. 2148: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- Burton 1-1 Fulham

    Almost the breakthrough for Fulham as Sascha Riether smacks one against the post!

  57. 2147: 
    EXTRA TIME- Burton 1-1 Fulham

    BBC Sport's Owen Phillips reports: "A pause for breath at the Pirelli. It was Martin Jol's turn to look seriously unhappy before extra-time and the impetus is all with Burton and a much noisier home crowd. Burton were superb in that final 15 minutes - remarkable considering they were outplayed for most of the rest of the game."

  58. 2145: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Alistair Lowe: Deserved comeback for Notts County. Liverpool's application lacking, too content at 2-0, when they should be out to hammer them.

    Tanni Mendiratta: Wow Brendan! Plays a top Liverpool team who are playing Man Utd on the weekend and they are being held into ET!

  59. 2143: 
    EXTRA TIME

    And the extra 30 minutes are already under way at Anfield, Burton, Yeovil, Tranmere and Leyton Orient...

  60. 2143: 

    As kiss would say, Crazy, Crazy Nights in the Capital One Cup!

    An avalanche of late goals.

  61. 2142: 
    FULL-TIME- Sunderland 4-2 MK Dons
    Paolo Di Canio
  62. 2142: 
    FULL-TIME- Barnsley 1-5 Southampton
  63. 2142: 
    FULL-TIME- Norwich 6-3 Bury
  64. 2141: 
    GOAL- Sunderland 4-2 MK Dons - Adam Johnson (90 mins)

    A mad night comes to a close now - surely! Adam Johnson slams in a fourth.

  65. 2141: 
    FULL-TIME- West Ham 2-1 Cheltenham
  66. 2140: 
    GOAL- Barnsley 1-5 Southampton - Gaston Ramirez (90 mins)

    It's five as Gaston Ramirez dances around the keeper to slot in.

  67. 2140: 
    BEST OF THE REST

    It is all kicking off at Huish Park between the two sides as Byron Webster scores a controversial late equaliser for Yeovil against Birmingham as he turns in from a pass-back when goalkeeper Colin Doyle kicked the ball out.

    Both benches are up on their feet arguing about the fairness of the goal, which was reminiscent of Marc Overmar's effort for Arsenal against Sheffield United in 1999.

  68. 2140: 
    FULL-TIME- Bristol City 2-1 Crystal Palace
  69. 2139: 
    GOAL- Norwich 6-3 Bury - Jessy Reindorf (90 mins)

    A 40-yard strike from Jessy Reindorf!

  70. 2139: 
    GOAL- Barnsley 1-4 Southampton - Steven Davis (Pen 90)

    Steven Davis increases the pain from the spot, hammering in a fourth.

  71. 2138: 
    GOAL- Bristol City 2-1 Crystal Palace - Owen Garvan (90 mins)

    Owen Garvan expertly volleys in deep into injury-time, but surely it is too late to prevent a Cupset?

  72. 2138: 
    FULL-TIME- Liverpool 2-2 Notts County

    And extra-time at Anfield too...

  73. 2137: 
    FULL-TIME- Burton 1-1 Fulham

    Extra-time at Burton then...

  74. 2136: 
    GOAL- Norwich 6-2 Bury - Steven Whittaker (90 mins)

    The former Rangers right-back Steven Whittaker brings the curtain down on a goalfest.

  75. 2135: 
    FULL-TIME- Leyton Orient 0-0 Hull

    We go to extra-time then...

  76. 2135: 
    GOAL- Sunderland 3-2 MK Dons - Connor Wickham (89 mins)

    Stunning comeback for Sunderland! Connor Wickham has masterminded this, and he buries a deflected effort to break the hearts of the MK Dons.

  77. 2134: 
    GET INVOLVED

    David Mackay: Why can't Liverpool just do it the easy way?

    Michael Griffin: Why do I have a horrible gut feeling that Notts County are going to win this game? Come on Liverpool get it together.

  78. 2134: 
    INJURY TIME

    What a dramatic last 10 minutes. Can Notts County, Burton, MK Dons and Bristol City hang on?

  79. 2134: 
    FULL-TIME- Arsenal 2-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 5-0)

    Comfortable.

  80. 2133:  
    Conor McNamara, BBC commentatorLiverpool 2-2 Notts County

    "Liverpool had a two-goal lead and they hit the post three times. Notts County got themselves back into the game but had not done anything for 10 minutes but then a classic counter attack goal.

    "Their manager Chris Kiwomya cannot believe this."

    Listen to BBC Radio 5 live for updates on the night's Champions League and League Cup action.

  81. 2132: 
    GOAL- Sunderland 2-2 MK Dons - Connor Wickham (87 mins)

    They've done it! Sunderland are back in it as Connor Wickham thumps in Seb Larsson's cross. Cruel times for MK Dons.

  82. 2132: 
    Liverpool 2-2 Notts County

    This is a superb effort from Notts County against what is a very strong Liverpool side. Into the last three minuets now.

  83. 2131: 
    Burton 1-1 Fulham

    BBC Sport's Owen Phillips reports: "Burton's willingness to keep going despite being second best for most of the game has paid off in some style. A quality finish from Jack Dyer and the Pirelli Stadium erupts. Burton sense a winner. Can Fulham regain the initiative?"

  84. 2130: 

    Can Notts County hang on?

  85. 2130: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Matt in York via 81111: Aaron Ramsey's game is looking more and more like Frank Lampard each time he plays. Great to see the British lads flourishing tonight around the games.

  86. 2128: 
    GOAL- Norwich 5-2 Bury - Leroy Fer

    Summer signing Leroy Fer - nicknamed The Bouncer while in the Netherlands - gets his first goal for Norwich since his summer move as he pokes home from close-range. That is time's up on Bury's hopes of an upset.

  87. 2127: 
    GOAL- Liverpool 2-2 Notts County - Adam Coombes (84 mins)

    But here we have maybe the story of the night! Notts County looked dead and buried but they are back to level in dramatic style, Adam Coombes reacting well to a cute cut-back from Yoann Arquin to slot in at the Anfield Road End.

  88. 2127: 
    GOAL- Burton 1-1 Fulham - Jack Dyer (85 mins)

    Hold on a moment - hang on! Burton are level, Jack Dyer converting a deep cross at the back stick. The League Two side are moments away from extra-time...

  89. 2126: 
    BEST OF THE REST

    Frustration for manager Harry Redknapp as Charlie Austin looks to have equalised for Queens Park Rangers against former club Swindon with a close-range header, only for the goal to be ruled out for offside. Unsurprisingly, the Hoops are piling on the pressure against their League One opponents, with Shaun Wright-Phillips also being denied what looks like a clear penalty.

    An awful night for Reading gets worse as Lee Tomlin completes his hat-trick from the penalty spot to make it 5-0 to Peterborough.

  90. 2125: 
    GOAL- Norwich 4-2 Bury - William Edjenguele (79 mins)

    Sniff of a chance back for the Shakers, as William Edjenguele notches.

  91. 2124: 

    Game on for Sunderland then - they have 10 minutes or so...

  92. 2123: 
    GOAL- Sunderland 1-2 MK Dons - Jozy Altidore (78 mins)

    Substitute Connor Wickham tees up American forward Jozy Altidore - who buries his first goal for the club.

  93. 2123: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Max Costantini: Love Holloway but feel my £10 on him in the sack race is money well spent!

    Andy McNamara: It's hardly an upset at Palace when they make 11 changes and Holloway has said he would rather be trying to sign players.

  94. 2122: 
    Arsenal 2-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 5-0)

    Problems for Arsenal - and maybe England - as Jack Wilshere goes down holding his ankle.

  95. 2121: 
    GOAL- Norwich 4-1 Bury - Johan Elmander (75 mins)

    That sniff of a chance which Bury had is snuffed out as Johan Elmander grabs his second from Robert Snodgrass' cross.

  96. 2120: 
    Burton 0-1 Fulham

    BBC Sport's Owen Phillips at the Pirelli: "Still very one-sided here at the Pirelli but while there is just the one goal in it...The Burton fans are finally sounding cup-tie lively and a rasping Jack Dyer shot on a rare Burton attack has raised noise levels and expectations. Fulham had been utterly dominant in the first 30 minutes after the break. Away boss Martin Jol looks a bit concerned and is prowling his touchline."

  97. 2120:  
    David Pleat, Former Tottenham manager on BBC Radio 5 live:Arsenal 2-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 5-0)

    "It was a beautiful shot from Aaron Ramsey. That of a well-seasoned striker. Guided into the net, right footed. Fenerbahce were caught short and Ramsey did brilliantly to find the space.

    "Arsenal have Ramsey, Rosicky, Wilshere, Arteta and for me they are well stocked in midfield. All of the talk is of them going for someone like Ozil from Real Madrid but I'd go for a goalkeeper and a well known goalkeeper for that. Perhaps someone like Cesar at Queens Park Rangers."

    Listen to BBC Radio 5 live for updates on the night's Champions League and League Cup action.

  98. 2118: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Sunderland 0-2 MK Dons
    Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio

    At 2-0 down, you would have put good money on seeing Steven Fletcher come off the bench for Sunderland at the Stadium of Light tonight. But Paolo Di Canio has decided against calling on the club's record signing and instead thrown on Sebastian Larsson and Greek teenager Charalampos Mavrias to get his side back into the game.

  99. 2117: 
    GOAL- Norwich 3-1 Bury - Anton Forrester (72 mins)

    Bury have a sniff of a chance - maybe - as Marlon Jackson hits the crossbar and Anton Forrester follows it in to notch from close range.

  100. 2116: 
    BEST OF THE REST

    The half-time oranges are working a treat for Leicester, as Chris Wood gets his hat-trick with two quick-fire goals to put the Foxes 5-2 up at Carlisle.

    Bolton went out at this stage of the League Cup to Crawley last season, but a typically accomplished finish from Jermaine Beckford just past the hour-mark levels things at 1-1 against League One strugglers Tranmere. A Cupset is still on at Loftus Road as QPR continue to trail 1-0 to Swindon.

    Substitute Billy Paynter flicks in for Doncaster against former club Leeds to make it 1-1, while loanee Marvin Sordell emphatically volleys Charlton back in front against Huddersfield.

  101. 2116: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- Liverpool 2-1 Notts County

    Liverpool hit the woodwork for the third time as Kolo Toure turns Steven Gerrard's drilled cross onto the inside of the post. Notts County are under heavy pressure but the Reds just can't kill them off.

  102. 2115: 
    GOAL- Barnsley 1-3 Southampton - Emmanuel Mayuka (66 mins)

    Emmanuel Mayuka puts Saints even further ahead at Oakwell, driving the ball past Mike Pollitt with his right foot for his first goal since moving from Young Boys a year ago.

  103. 2115: 
    GOAL- Bristol City 2-0 Crystal Palace - Scott Wagstaff (71 mins)
    Scott Wagstaff scores

    The hosts look to have secured their upset against Premier League Crystal Palace as Scott Wagstaff calmly takes a touch from a Bobby Reid ball and fires into the bottom corner.

  104. 2114: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Gareth from Surrey via 81111: After watching us against Southampton on Saturday, it's no surprise Sunderland are losing tonight. We will not score with Altidore and Ji up front. Simple.

  105. 2112: 
    GOAL- Arsenal 2-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 5-0) - Aaron Ramsey (72 mins)

    Lovely finish! Aaron Ramsey's fine start to the season continues as he runs on to Kieran Gibbs' cutback and calmly steers in a side-footed volley from 10 yards. Cool as you like.

  106. 2111: 
    Sunderland 0-2 MK Dons

    Sunderland have got 20 minutes to turn it around then.

    A word of hope for the Black Cats though - in that game I refereed to earlier Northampton were 2-0 up at the Stadium of Light in the 88th minute, and still drew 2-2. It can be done!

  107. 2111:  
    Robbie Savage, BBC Radio 5 liveGET INVOLVED

    Robbie Savage: I wonder if Karl Robinson, should they win, will celebrate on the pitch and point to Sunderland fans saying you're going down like Di Canio did to Villa fans?

  108. 2110:  
    Former Everton and Sunderland winger Kevin Kilbane speaking on BBC 5LiveSunderland 0-2 MK Dons
    Paolo Di Canio

    "I know what it's like up there when things aren't going well.

    "There's been a lot of talk about Di Canio but I think he has to be given time. I think he is trying to implement a lot at one time like new diets and things. Given time, I think he'll be a success."

    GET INVOLVED

    Andrew Priestley: "Worrying times for Sunderland fans. It's clear what direction Paulo Di Canio is taking the club! All credit to MK Dons though."

    Russell Reynolds: "Di Canio's signings remind me of Mark Hughes at QPR and Man City. Lots of people, but can't gel and half won't cope."

  110. 2108: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- Arsenal 1-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 4-0)

    A steady second half comes alive at Arsenal. Santi Cazorla pulls a fine save out of Volkan Demirel after bursting through in the left channel, before Theo Walcott bends in a free-kick from wide on the left which thumps against the crossbar. Twenty minutes left at the Emirates.

  111. 2105: 
    GOAL- Liverpool 2-1 Notts County - Yoann Arquin (62 mins)
    Notts County celebrate

    The first goal that Liverpool have conceded this season and it comes from the forehead of Notts County defender Yoann Arquin, who beats his marker to a ball nodded across the box and thumps into the roof of the net. Do we have a game on?

  112. 2105: 
    Former Manchester United assistant manager Mike Phelan on BBC Radio 5 Live:West Ham 2-1 Cheltenham

    "Ravel Morrison is a very talented footballer who obviously needed experience. He had to get out of Manchester United for that reason.

    "There was never any doubt about his ability. It was something that was going on between his ears.

    "There is sometimes a change to be made both for the player and the club he is at which benefits both parties. The potential is there and he should be a talent."

    Twp Cupsets on the cards now then...

  114. 2103: 
    GOAL- West Ham 2-1 Cheltenham - Matt Richards (Pen 59 mins)

    Not too sure why this penalty was given - but Cheltenham won't care. Matt Richards does the business and we have a game on our hands.

  115. 2103: 
    GOAL- Bristol City 1-0 Crystal Palace - Jay Emmanuel-Thomas (59 mins)

    We are on course for a second Premier League Cupset of the night as Crystal Palace fall behind at League One Bristol City through an excellent strike from Arsenal youth product Jay Emmanuel-Thomas.

  116. 2103: 
    GOAL- Barnsley 1-2 Southampton - Stephen Dawson (53 mins)

    Barnsley pull one back at Oakwell, Stephen Dawson driving the ball home into the bottom corner from long range.

  117. 2101: 
    BEST OF THE REST

    An embarrassing night for Reading gets worse as Lee Tomlin, from the penalty spot, makes it 4-0 to League One Peterborough. That 4-4 scoreline I predicted is still on though.

    Leicester manager Nigel Pearson can be proud of his half-time team talk as goals from Lloyd Dyer and Anthony Knockaert give the Foxes a 3-1 lead at League One strugglers Carlisle.

  118. 2100: 
    GOAL- Sunderland 0-2 MK Dons - Izale McLeod (55 mins)

    He scored goals by the hat-full in his first spell with the Dons, and Izale McLeod adds another to his haul, and what a big one. He gets in clean through and dinks the ball home. Cupset o'clock

  119. 2058: 
    GOAL- Barnsley 0-2 Southampton - Jay Rodriguez (49 mins)
    Jay Rodriguez

    Jay Rodriguez puts the Premier League side further ahead at Oakwell, curling the ball beyond the grasp of Mike Pollitt.

  120. 2058: 
    GOAL- Norwich 3-0 Bury - Johan Elmander (52 mins)

    It's a goal on his full debut for former Bolton man Johan Elmander, as he gets on the end of a Robert Snodgrass pass to smash in emphatically.

  121. 2057: 

    Still Sunderland trail MK Dons, while Crystal Palace remain level at Bristol City. League One having the upper hand so far in those two matches...

  122. 2056: 
    GET INVOLVED

    West Brom midfielder Steven Reid: Great credit to Saido Berahino. Worked hard all through summer break to get fit and has come back getting the rewards!

  123. 2056: 
    YELLOW CARD- Arsenal 1-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 4-0)

    Not one of the better dives you will see - Fenerbahce frontman Emmanuel Emenike goes into the book for flinging himself to the deck as Wojciech Szczesny comes out to narrow the angle. The Pole knew it as well, wagging his finger in his face like a disapproving teacher.

  124. 2053: 
    GOAL- West Ham 2-0 Cheltenham - Ravel Morrison (46 mins)

    He's long been touted as the best thing since sliced bread, but maybe this is the year for Ravel Morrison. He is on the scoresheet tonight, twsiting and turning inside the area to make room for a shot which is dispatched into the net.

  125. 2052:  
    David Pleat, Former Tottenham manager on BBC Radio 5 live:Arsenal 1-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 4-0)

    "I think Arsene Wenger will protect his players by making some substitutions. He has quite a strong bench. We might even see Ryo Miyaichi, the Japanese player, in the second half. He's very quick."

  126. 2051: 
    HALF-TIME- West Brom 3-0 Newport

    Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Sam Ricketts told BBC Radio Wales: "West Bromwich Albion have been ruthless, but the Newport players shouldn't be holding their heads down after that first half. You could not really ask for more from the visitors."

  127. 2050: 
    KICK-OFF

    And we are up and running in the majority of our other games now. Can we please stave off extra-time and penalties?

  128. 2049: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Arsenal 1-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 4-0)

    And that's that for Lukas Podolski, Kieran Gibbs comes on in his place.

  129. 2048: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Jack in Nuneaton via 81111: "Has to be said, West Brom have a promising young talent in Saido Berahino. I hope he starts this weekend against Swansea, we need a striker to step up this season to make up for the loss of Lukaku."

  130. 2047: 
    Arsenal 1-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 4-0)

    Ping! There goes Lukas Podolski's hamstring, seconds in to the second half.

  131. 2046: 
    KICK-OFF- Arsenal 1-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 4-0)

    Back in play at the Emirates...

  132. 2045: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Norwich City winger Elliot Bennett: "Peterborough are flying this season! Goals goals goals. Wouldn't be surprised if that game ended with 8 goals between the two sides."

    Jill Allen: "At Peterborough watching Reading lose 3-0 down after half an hour #embarrassing. It might be the first time I leave before end."

    Adam Conyard: "Some people write off Peterborough before a ball has even been kicked, 3-0 and showing why we're a championship club!"

  133. 2041: 
    Burton 0-1 Fulham

    BBC Sport's Owen Phillips at the Pirelli: "Adel Taarabt has been the outstanding creative player on the pitch and his sweetly-stuck goal separates the sides. It's dark and dingy at the Pirelli Stadium and the hosts' prospects look gloomy on the pitch too. Although Burton's endeavour is obvious, they are struggling to retain possession and boss Gary Rowett looked frustrated at the break."

  134. 2040: 
    BEST OF THE REST

    QPR and Bolton met in the Championship at the weekend, but both sides are currently 1-0 down at half-time in the League Cup.

    Troubled striker Nile Ranger scores his first goal since May 2012 to give Swindon the lead against QPR, while Bolton could be on course for their third-consecutive defeat in all competitions thanks to a 15-yard Cole Stockton strike for Tranmere.

    Promising midfielder Will Hughes adds to his burgeoning reputation as he finishes from 16 yards to hand Derby a 3-0 lead against Brentford, who are unbeaten in League One thus far this season. The goal is just the third of the 18-year-old's professional career.

    Defender Scott Wootton is having a Leeds debut to remember as heads home from close range following a Matt Smith knock back to give his new side the lead in the Yorkshire derby at Doncaster. In another all-Championship clash, Andrew Shinnie curls in his first goal for Birmingham to give them a 2-1 lead at Yeovil.

  135. 2038: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Alistair, a Leyton Orient fan via 81111: "Leyton Orient outclassing Hull at Brisbane Road, thrashing them 0-0. Jinxing the second half entirely, but I think the O's first half display deserves recognition."

    Recognised.

  136. 2037: 
    GOAL- West Brom 3-0 Newport - Saido Berahino (Pen 38 mins)

    Get the man a drink! Saido Berahino has a hat-trick inside 40 minutes for the Albion, burying a penalty to surely sew this one up.

  137. 2037:  
    David Pleat, Former Tottenham manager on BBC Radio 5 live:Arsenal 1-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 4-0)

    "I think certainly in midfield, Santi Carzola, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere have been passing the ball with much greater accuracy than their opponents. There's been good raiding forward from Arsenal's full-backs. They've been much the better side, especially in advanced areas."

  138. 2036: 
    UP FOR A CUPSET?

    On the Cupset front, it's only Sunderland of the Premier League sides who are behind at the break.

    Hull are having a hard time of it at in-form Leyton Orient, but have survived to the interval, and Crystal Palace remain goalless at Bristol City.

  139. 2034: 
    Arsenal 1-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 4-0)
    Olivier Giround competes for the ball

    BBC Sport's Alistair Magowan reports: "Decent half for Arsenal, who - barring a calamity - now look as good as through to their 16th Champions League qualification. Some nice passing will give confidence ahead of the north London derby on Sunday so it would be no surprise if Arsene Wenger replaced a few players in the second period."

  140. 2033: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- Sunderland 0-1 MK Dons

    At last, Sunderland are showing some signs of life and came within the width of a post of equalising against MK Dons just before the breal. Jozy Altidore has crashed an effort against the woodwork in the closing stages of the first half, although it will probably do little to change Paolo Di Canio's mood going into the break.

  141. 2032: 
    HALF-TIME

    Half-time whistles are being blown around the country - let's take a look at the overall picture.

  142. 2031:  
    Former Everton winger Kevin Kilbane speaking on BBC 5LiveLiverpool 2-0 Notts County

    "When I watched Liverpool last season, there's no doubt Luis Suarez was outstanding and some games it felt like he was winning them points on his own.

    "When Daniel Sturridge came in they looked like a different side. Suarez was suddenly able to roam. Sturridge has been an outstanding signing for them. He's a big plus and a huge signing for Liverpool."

    Listen to BBC Radio 5 live for updates on the night's Champions League and League Cup action.

  143. 2031: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Chris Parker: "So all these summer signings and Sunderland are the only Premier league team not winning? Stressful season ahead.."

    Jack Stevenson: "On the Paolo Di Canio scale of cruel and unusual punishments, defeat to MK Dons is... a barefoot training session on hot coals?"

    Anthony Small: "Di Canio will be sacked before Christmas. Not or never will be a Premier League manager."

  144. 2030: 
    HALF-TIME- Arsenal 1-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 4-0)

    Lukas Podolski wants a penalty as he tumbles inside the area but it's waved away and there's the half-time whistle.

  145. 2030: 

    I just remembered that I once went to a house party with Ricardo Vaz Te. One of the great anecdotes that.

  146. 2029: 
    Burton 0-1 Fulham

    BBC Sport's Owen Phillips at Pirelli Stadium: "Burton boss Gary Rowett seems slightly agitated on the touchline. His Burton side have had few scares but are struggling to win possession and, when they do they are struggling to retain it. That said, Fulham have failed to make the most of some decent positions but Adel Taarabt looks sharp and Scott Parker is very influential in the middle of the pitch."

  147. 2028: 
    GOAL- West Brom 2-0 Newport - Saido Berahino (26 mins)
    Saido Berahino

    Saido Berahino strikes again, this time unleashing a powerful shot into the top left-hand corner of the Newport goal, celebrating his England U21 squad call-up in style.

  148. 2027: 
    GOAL- West Ham 1-0 Cheltenham - Ricardo Vaz Te (42 mins)

    The forgotten man of Upton Park, Ricardo Vaz Te, rattles in a free-kick to put Sam Allardyce's side ahead against the League Two boys. He scored a lot of goals the season they were promoted, has he got a future for the Hammers?

  149. 2026: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- Liverpool 2-0 Notts County

    That big statement from Liverpool almost got bigger. Raheem Sterling beats his man before waiting for the overlapping Steven Gerrard, he releases the pass perfectly and Gerrard thumps a shot against the near post. Unlucky.

  150. 2025:  
    Former Everton winger Kevin Kilbane on BBC Radio 5 LiveLiverpool 2-0 Notts County

    "Liverpool look strong, they're totally dominating possession. Brendan Rodgers has made a big statement in the team he's selected."

  151. 2024: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- Arsenal 1-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 4-0)

    He may lack a bit of conviction at times but Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny is a great shot-stopper. He turns a shot from Emmanuel Emenike on to the post with a wonderful stop, and is back on his feet to make another reflex save as the cross comes back in. Brilliant stuff from the Pole keeps Arsenal ahead on the night.

  152. 2024: 

    That Peterborough-Reading game is going to end 4-4. I tell you.

  153. 2023: 
    BEST OF THE REST

    That Cupset looks nailed on as Peterborough race into a 3-0 lead against Championship side Reading. The last two goals - from Lee Tomlin and Danny Swanson - have been brilliant strikes on the counter-attack.

    Things are level in the all-Championship clash at Huish Park as Ed Upson equalises for Yeovil against Birmingham with a wonderfully-struck free-kick. Defender Kyle Bartley had earlier nodded the visitors ahead from a Neal Eardley corner.

    At Pride Park, Chris Martin's fourth goal of the season and a cool finish from Conor Sammon puts Derby 2-0 in front against League One Brentford. Charlton are deservedly ahead against fellow Championship side Huddersfield through a deflected Dale Stephens free-kick.

  154. 2023: 
    GET INVOLVED

    George in Saint-Nazaire, France, Via 81111: "Well no one can claim old Brendan is being disrespectful. Right attitude to go for it, never mind Man Utd on Sunday"

    Aqeel in Blackburn via 81111: "You just get the feeling Liverpool are just on song this season. This kind of game was a potential banana skin last year but they look in so much more control."

  155. 2021: 
    GOAL- Burton 0-1 Fulham - Adel Taarabt (36 mins)

    This is what Adel Taarabt's all about. More trickery than a Noel Edmonds Saturday night gameshow as he bamboozles his man wide on the left to cut inside the penalty area and fire in at the far post. His first goal for his new employers.

  156. 2018: 
    Arsenal 1-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 4-0)

    I heard Alan Hansen calling for Arsene Wenger to sign a goalkeeper over the weekend and Wojciech Szczesny is not doing much to change anyone's mind here. He comes flapping at a cross, gets nowhere near the ball and is then lucky not to concede a penalty in his clumsy attempts to win the ball back. Panic stations in the middle of that Arsenal defence.

  157. 2018:  
    David Pleat, Former Tottenham manager on BBC Radio 5 live:Arsenal 1-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 4-0)
    Aaron Ramsey

    "I think it takes a while to get over such a serious injury and this year is Aaron Ramsey's season. He's going to be influential this season and he looks like he's got his confidence back which is the most important thing."

  158. 2017: 
    GOAL- Barnsley 0-1 Southampton - Steven Davis (26 mins)

    Southampton lead at Oakwell, with Steve Davis stroking the ball past Mike Pollitt following nice work from Lloyd Isgrove.

  159. 2016: 
    GOAL- Norwich 2-0 Bury - Anthony Pilkington (31 mins)
    Anthony Pilkington

    Norwich are off to a very professional start as Anthony Pilkington runs on to Wes Hoolahan's pass and drills into the far corner.

  160. 2014: 
    GOAL- Liverpool 2-0 Notts County - Daniel Sturridge (29 mins)

    Liverpool's England brigade are proving a class apart at Anfield. Steven Gerrard picks out Daniel Sturridge's run in the right-back channel and he smashes in an early shot, beautifully hit with zero backlift into the corner. Too good.

  161. 2011: 
    CLOSE!- Sunderland 0-1 MK Dons

    MK Dons come close to doubling their lead at Sunderland, as Izale McLeod shoots wide after being sent clean through. Earlier, Alan Smith - that's former Newcastle midfielder Alan Smith - forced a superb save from Black Cats debutant Vito Mannone with a glancing header. Patrick Bamford's stunning strike still separates the two teams, and the League One side are deservedly in front.

  162. 2009: 
    GOAL- Arsenal 1-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 4-0) - Aaron Ramsey (25 mins)

    It's a bit clumsy, but Arsenal score and put this tie to bed. Lukas Podolski runs across the area from left to right, he is tackled but the ball runs through to Theo Walcott, who just about squares it and Aaron Ramsey continues his decent start to the campaign with a tap-in. Job done.

  163. 2008: 
    GOAL- Norwich 1-0 Bury - Martin Olsson (23 mins)
    Martin Olsson scores

    Norwich take the lead with a goal from summer signing Martin Olsson, who turns on the edge of the area before firing in low. What was all that Cupset talk?

  164. 2008: 
    GOAL- West Brom 1-0 Newport - Saido Berahino (7 mins)

    West Brom fans get a first glimpse of Scott Sinclair, and they'll like what they see. Saido Berahino dinks in over Lenny Pidgeley after Sinclair's pacy run opens up the Newport defence.

  165. 2007: 
    Arsenal 0-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 3-0)

    Theo Walcott dinks a rubbish free-kick into the wall and Arsenal are nearly done on the counter. Dirk Kuyt leads a a lightning break which ends with Selcuk Sahin drilling a shot wide from 25 yards. That's how Fulham felt on Saturday lads...

  166. 2004: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- Liverpool 1-0 Notts County

    Liverpool are piling on the pain at Anfield. Steven Gerrard's dead-ball delivery is top notch and Daniel Agger flicks a header against the base of the post.

  167. 2003: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Max in Towcester via 81111: "No one should be surprised if Mk Dons get a win today. They've knocked out Premier League opponents twice in the last three years."

    Peter in Milton Keynes via 81111: "Come on you Dons! Bamford another great piece of business by Robinson and Winkleman. Better things to come from MK!"

  168. 2001: 
    CLOSE!- Arsenal 0-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 3-0)

    Jack Wilshere finally gets some space in midfield and there's no surprise that Arsenal have a chance as a result. Wilshere drives from deep before finding Olivier Giroud to his right, the in-form Frenchman works the ball on to his left foot but bends it wide from 20 yards. Better from the Arsenal though.

  169. 2001: 
    KICK-OFF- West Brom 0-0 Newport

    Our last League Cup tie of the night is up and running...

  170. 2000: 
    BEST OF THE REST

    Britt Assombalonga sets up what could be another Cupset as he profits from Adam Federici's weak goalkeeping to put Peterborough a goal up against Championship side Reading.

    The goalkeeping nightmares are continuing, as Preston's Thorsten Stuckmann fails to deal with defender Kieran Trippier's long-distance free-kick to give Burnley a 1-0 lead in the Lancashire derby at Turf Moor.

  171. 1958: 
    Liverpool 1-0 Notts County

    It's an unhappy start for Aly Cissokho as the French defender limps off just nine minutes into his first start for Liverpool. Notts County almost snatch an equaliser when Joss Labadie's 25-yard free-kick is poorly parried away by keeper Simon Mignolet but Jamal Campbell-Ryce blasts his follow-up effort high into the Kop.

  172. 1956: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Arsenal 0-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 3-0)

    What was that we were saying about Arsenal needing a centre-half? Shambolic stuff at the back as the ball breaks inside the penalty area, a clearance is then slammed into the shins of Fenerbahce midfielder Raul Meireles and Wojciech Szczesny has to make a sprawling save at his near post.

    Arsenal were all over the place.

  173. 1956: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Tom Castle: "Poor Notts County. They never had time to shift the bus into park."

    Jack Lovatt: "Sterling effort there from Raheem!"

  174. 1954: 

    Could we have a Cupset in the north east? I was in the Northampton end for a League Cup tie at Sunderland a few years back which went to penalties before the Premier League boys won through.

    Roy Keane called it one of the worst nights of his career which we took as a badge of honour. He was livid afterwards, which led to a friend of mine wisely deciding not to ask Keano to sign a copy of his autobiography...

  175. 1952: 
    GOAL- Sunderland 0-1 MK Dons - Patrick Bamford (7 mins)

    Oh dear Paolo Di Canio. Not the start the Italian wanted as MK Dons take a shock lead at the Stadium of Light. On-loan Chelsea man Patrick Bamford - who scored a cracker at the weekend - is at it again, slamming in from 20 yards.

    Paolo will be seething.

  176. 1949: 
    GOAL- Liverpool 1-0 Notts County - Raheem Sterling (4 mins)
    Raheem Sterling

    Fine start for Liverpool, as Raheem Sterling celebrates his England call-up in style! Picking the ball up 40 yards from goal, he darts inside, walks past County defender Manny Smith with ease and hammers in a low shot from the edge of the box. Could be a long night for the League One side.

  177. 1948: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Tim Gordon: "Bent to do the business tonight. Could be one of the best loan signings of the window! COYW!"

    Hazem Radi: "Bent has the chance to show what he can do for Fulham tonight!"

  178. 1948: 
    Arsenal 0-0 Fenerbahce (Agg: 3-0)

    Fenerbahce snap into the tackle quickly in midfield to deny Jack Wilshere any space at all as he tries to spin away. Nacho Monreal then does find some space out wide but runs out of turf.

  179. 1946: 
    KICK-OFF

    And we are of course under way - or will be shortly - in 18 League Cup ties...

  180. 1945:

    We are under way at a not-particularly busy Emirates...

  181. 1941: 
    Arsenal v Fenerbahce (1945 BST, Agg: 3-0)

    The cameras pick out a few banners calling for Arsene Wenger to spend at the Emirates, but it's hardly a full-on revolt. Here come the teams, as giant Per Mertesacker leads the Gunners out of the tunnel.

    There seems to be a groundswell of opinion on texts and twitter that Norwich and Hull are going to struggle tonight.

    Only Billy Jones, Claudio Yacob and Graham Dorrans keep their starting places from the West Brom side that drew at Everton. Five new players make their first starts for the Baggies, including loan signing Scott Sinclair. Luke Daniels gets his chance to stake his claim in goal in the absence of the long-term injured Ben Foster.

  193. 1923: 
    PROBLEMS AT THE BACK?

    Bacary Sagna is again filling in at centre-back for Arsenal tonight, though Laurent Koscielny is on the bench after getting a hell of a kicking in the face last week.

    Thomas Vermaelen remains injured, and Arsene Wenger doesn't appear to have a fourth central defender in his squad. An area to be strengthened before the deadline?

  194. 1921: 
    LINE-UPS- Burton v Fulham (1945 BST)

    Burton Albion: Lyness, Edwards, Sharps, Holness, McCrory, Bell, Dyer, Palmer, Weir, Hussey, Howe. Subs: Reed, Mats Morch, Phillips, Knowles, Symes, Harness.

  195. 1918: 
    LINE-UPS- Leyton Orient v Hull (1945 BST)

    Hull: Harper, Rosenior, Bruce, McShane, Dudgeon, Mclean, Meyler, Boyd, Stewart, Fryatt, Proschwitz. Subs: Chester, Davies, Brady, Jakupovic, Aluko, Townsend, Jahraldo-Martin.

  196. 1918: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Stephen Wilson: Quite a statement of intent from Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers with tonight's line-up, especially with a massive game this Sunday against Manchester United! Excited.

    George Baggaley: Would have liked to have seen Liverpool striker Borini start and get some game time against fairly tame opposition.

    Russell Reynolds: Norwich look to have decent depth this year. Expecting a better cup run from them.

  197. 1916: 
    Arsenal v Fenerbahce (1945 BST, Agg: 3-0)

    BBC Sport's Alistair Magowan reports: "Arsenal might be in control of this tie but manager Arsene Wenger chooses a strong side with Jack Wilshere returning to the line-up after coming off the bench during the 3-1 victory against Fulham on Saturday. Tomas Rosicky makes way, while Nacho Monreal replaces Kieran Gibbs at left-back. Fenerbahce make six changes to the team that lost the first leg 3-0 in Turkey with Nigerian striker Emmanuel Emenike preferred to Pierre Webo up front. Former Newcastle midfielder Emre Belozoglu is injured, and replaced by Brazilian Cristian but former Liverpool and Chelsea midfielder Raul Meireles starts as does Dirk Kuyt."

  198. 1915: 
    Burton v Fulham (1945 BST)

    Darren Bent makes his first start for Fulham following his loan move from Aston Villa. The striker scored after coming on as a substitute in Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Arsenal, and he is one of four changes made by Martin Jol. Burton boss Gary Rowett also makes four changes to his side following their 2-2 draw at home to Bury, one that maintained the Brewers' unbeaten start to the season.

  199. 1914: 
    Leyton Orient v Hull (1945 BST)

    Hull manager Steve Bruce makes 11 changes for the trip to Leyton Orient, with former Newcastle goalkeeper Steve Harper, 38, making his debut and seven other Tigers featuring for the first time this season.

  200. 1913: 
    GT INVOLVED

    Tom via 81111: Away from the Champions League formalities expect a few cup shocks tonight. Peterborough, Bristol City and Brentford to win. The last has nothing to do with me being a Nottingham Forest fan, honest.

    With Derby playing Brentford, I sense a bit of East Midlands rivalry coming through on Tom's text.

    David via 81111: The only problem with Cheltenham getting to the final is that we've never beaten a Premier League team... Ever. There is, however, a first time for everything.

  201. 1911: 
    Burton v Fulham (1945 BST)

    BBC Sport's Owen Phillips at the Pirelli: "Let's Get Ready To Rumble" by Ant and Dec, PJ and Duncan... whoever, is currently playing at the Pirelli Stadium. Well, things can only improve from this point. Presumably Fulham boss Martin Jol is sat in the dugout to survey the surroundings and ponder tactics - not take in the tunes. Burton's players are well into their warm-up routines. Fulham's have just come out, with Darren Bent starting"

  202. 1911: 
    ALL THE WAY

    As the team news rolls in on a busy evening of football, it's time to get yourselves set for action. It could be a long-hauler tonight though, with the prospect of extra-time and penalties hanging over our heads in all 18 League Cup ties.

    There's bound to be at least one game going the distance - my early money's on Peterborough v Reading keeping us waiting after a 4-4 draw...

  203. 1908: 
    LINE-UPS- Norwich v Bury (1945 BST)

    Norwich: Bunn, Ryan Bennett, Bassong, Olsson, Snodgrass, Martin, Johnson, Pilkington, Fer, Hoolahan, Elmander. Subs: Turner, Howson, van Wolfswinkel, Becchio, Nash, Redmond, Whittaker.

    Bury: Lainton, Beeley, Cameron, Edjenguele, Roberts, Jones, Procter, Miller, Mayor, Forrester, Jackson. Subs: Carson, Hinds, Grimes, Holden, Sedgwick, Harrad, Reindorf.

  204. 1908: 
    LINE-UPS- Liverpool v Notts County (1945 BST)

    Liverpool: Mignolet, Johnson, Toure, Wisdom, Cissokho, Gerrard, Allen, Alberto, Ibe, Sturridge, Sterling. Subs: Brad Jones, Agger, Aspas, Coutinho, Henderson, Lucas, Borini.

    Notts County: Bialkowski, Dumbuya, Liddle, Smith, Stevens, Bell, Labadie, Fotheringham, Campbell-Ryce, Arquin, McGregor. Subs: Coombes, Murray, Thompson, Spiess, Tempest, Boucaud, Nangle.

  205. 1907: 
    ANDROS FOR ENGLAND

    Away from this evening's action, Roy Hodgson named his England squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine earlier this afternoon, with Everton midfielder Ross Barkley and Tottenham winger Andros Townsend getting the call.

    Tottenham's Andros Townsend (left) and Everton's Ross Barkley

    Hodgson has certainly taken the adage of 'picking on form' to heart it seems, with form over the last 180 minutes being enough to get the nod. He's also kept faith with some of his old guard though, as Ashley Young and Chris Smalling are in despite not playing much for Manchester United this season.

    What are your thoughts on the squad? Fire them over to #bbcfootball.

  206. 1905: 
    West Ham v Cheltenham (1945 BST)

    There are West Ham debuts for goalkeeper Adrian and defenders Razvan Rat and Leo Chambers as Sam Allardyce makes 10 changes from the team that drew 0-0 at Newcastle at the weekend for the Capital One Cup visit of Cheltenham.

    Chambers, 18, is an England under-18 international while Spaniard Adrian, 26, and Romanian Rat, 32, joined from Real Betis and Shakhtar Donetsk respectively in the summer. Ravel Morrison starts in attack alongside Ricardo Vaz Te.

  207. 1905: 
    Sunderland v MK Dons (1945 BST)

    After five months out injured, record signing Steven Fletcher is included on the Sunderland bench for their tie against League One side MK Dons. The 26-year-old striker has not played since damaging ankle ligaments while playing for Scotland in March. Black Cats manager Paolo Di Canio makes six changes to his starting line-up, with goalkeeper Vito Mannone and forward David Moberg-Karlsson handed debuts. Former Manchester United and Newcastle midfielder Alan Smith starts for MK Dons, who have yet to lose a game this season.

  208. 1903: 
    Barnsley v Southampton (1945 BST)

    Mauricio Pochettino makes nine changes to the Southampton side that drew with Sunderland on Saturday, with defender Jose Fonte and striker Jay Rodriguez the only survivors. Saints won on their only visit to Oakwell in this competition, a 2-1 victory in 1997. Barnsley include 41-year-old goalkeeper Mike Pollitt, who only joined the club today on a 28-day loan from Wigan. He is one of three changes made by David Flitcroft from the side that lost 5-2 to Blackburn on Saturday.

  209. 1902: 
    BEST OF THE REST
    Graham Alexander

    The tie of the night, outside the Premier League clubs, is arguably taking place at Turf Moor where Burnley host Preston.

    The Lancashire rivals first met in 1888, with North End prevailing 5-2. It is hard to believe because of the seemingly never-ending length of his career, but I can confirm stalwart defender Graham Alexander did not feature for either side in that game...

    Elsewhere, Leeds make the short trip to Keepmoat Stadium to face Doncaster, striker Charlie Austin starts for Queens Park Rangers against his former side Swindon and red-hot Huddersfield striker James Vaughan will hope to add to the seven goals he has plundered already this season in the all-Championship clash with Charlton.

  210. 1902: 
    Norwich v Bury (1945 BST)

    Norwich City boss Chris Hughton makes eight changes for his side's Capital One Cup clash with League Two's Bury at Carrow Road. Sweden striker Johan Elmander makes his first start for the Canaries since his season-long loan move from Turkish club Galatasaray.

  211. 1900: 
    Arsenal v Fenerbahce (1945 BST, Agg: 3-0)

    BBC Sport's Alistair Magowan reports: "Arsenal will be eager to make amends with their home supporters after their Premier League opening day defeat by Aston Villa. The Gunners have soundly beaten Fenerbahce in the first leg of this tie and Fulham since, and even though they stand on the verge of Champions League qualification, another convincing performance will breathe extra confidence into the side before they host Tottenham on Sunday."

  212. 1900: 
    Liverpool v Notts County (1945 BST)

    Liverpool summer signings Aly Cissokho and Luis Alberto makes their first competitive starts in the Capital One Cup tie against Notts County. Raheem Sterling, fresh from his England call-up is also in the line-up along with fellow youngsters Jordon Ibe and Andre Wisdom as manager Brendan Rodgers makes six changes from the side that beat Aston Villa on Saturday.

  213. 1900: 
    LINE-UPS- Arsenal v Fenerbahce (1945 BST, Agg: 3-0)

    Arsenal: Szczesny, Jenkinson, Sagna, Mertesacker, Monreal, Wilshere, Ramsey, Cazorla, Walcott, Giroud, Podolski. Subs: Fabianski, Koscielny, Rosicky, Sanogo, Frimpong, Gibbs, Miyaichi.

    Fenerbahce: Demirel, Gonul, Bruno Alves, Korkmaz, Erkin, Sahin, Baroni, Meireles, Kuyt, Emenike, Sow. Subs: Gunok, Ali Kaldirim, Irtegun, Webo, Potuk, Topuz, Ucan.

    Referee: Carlos Velasco Carballo (Spain)

  214. 1900: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Christopher Hares: Would any of tonight's back four for Arsenal get in any team that has a serious chance of a top 7 finish?

    Nando Pinto: Hopefully, Wenger can start signing some quality after we have Champions league guaranteed.. #ArseneScrooge

  215. 1858: 
    UP FOR A CUPSET?

    So where are the big stories coming from tonight? Where will the Cupset-ometer come up trumps this evening?

    Hull fans may be a bit nervous on their way down to face a Leyton Orient side who boast a 100% record in League One, while Newport may fancy their chances of another shock at West Brom after beating Brighton in the first round...

    Newport
  216. 1856: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Will Arsenal have any difficulty tonight? Can Barnsley, Bristol City or Burton pull off a Cupset?

    Who will come out on top in the Burnley - PNE derby? Can Cheltenham 'do a Bradford' and make it all the way to the final?

    Let us know your thoughts.

  217. 1856: 

    Team news is pinging its way in around the grounds - we'll bring you it all over the next 20 minutes or so. Who's in and who's out?

  218. 1853: 
    LEAGUE CUP ACTION

    With Arsenal's passage looking serene, the focus may shift to the League Cup - where nine top-flight sides are in action in tonight's second round.

    There are 18 ties in total, we'll bring you updates from around the grounds with full coverage of the matches involving the big boys.

    They are:

    Barnsley v Southampton (1945 BST)

    Bristol City v Crystal Palace (1945 BST)

    Burton v Fulham (1945 BST)

    Leyton Orient v Hull City (1945 BST)

    Liverpool v Notts County (1945 BST)

    Norwich v Bury (1945 BST)

    Sunderland v MK Dons (1945 BST)

    West Brom v Newport County (2000 BST)

    West Ham v Cheltenham (1945 BST)

  219. 1852: 
    BREAKING TEAM NEWS- Arsenal v Fenerbahce (1945 BST, Agg: 3-0)

    Jack Wilshere is back in the Arsenal side after being a substitute at the weekend, and Nacho Monreal starts in place of Kieran Gibbs at left-back.

  220. 1850: 
    Arsenal v Fenerbahce (1945 BST, Agg: 3-0)

    Goals from Kieran Gibbs, Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud were enough for Arsenal to cruise past Fenerbahce in Turkey last week and put the Gunners within touching distance of a 14th straight season in the Champions League group stages.

    After the poor display at home to Aston Villa on the opening day of the season though, you sense Arsene Wenger needs a performance this evening to go at least some way to appeasing the locals.

  221. 1845: 
    ON THE CHARGE

    Crisis? What crisis?

    Olivier Giroud & Lukas Podolski

    Arsenal's troubled start to the season is already on the way to being forgotten after a pair of handsome wins on the road over the last week, and the Gunners should cement their place in the lucrative group stages of the Champions League tonight to boot.

    Holding a 3-0 lead from the first leg, Arsene Wenger's side would need a very bad day at the office indeed against Fenerbahce this evening to prevent them from making it through. It's in the bag - isn't it?
