Fulham 3-0 Sheffield United
Two goals from Ross McCormack helped Fulham beat nine-man Sheffield United.
McCormack scored his first goal of the season from a penalty after he was pulled back trying an overhead kick
His second came after a well-worked passing move, when he fired in after Ben Pringle's lay-off.
The Blades, who reached the semi-finals last year, had Jose Baxter and Kieran Wallace sent off late on for straight red cards, before Moussa Dembele tapped home a third for the hosts.
Forward Baxter was dismissed for a late challenge on Tom Cairney, while defender Wallace brought down Dembele as he was bearing down on goal.
