    Right, that's all from us. No shocks in the end as the defending champions Manchester City go through along with the Premier League champions Liverpool and Aston Villa.

    Until next time, goodbye!

  2. 'Difference in the first half was Liverpool finishing'

    Lincoln 2-7 Liverpool

    Lincoln City manager Michael Appleton to Sky Sports: "I thought in the first half we had our moments. It was a masterclass of finishing from Liverpool.

    "In the second half we created a lot of opportunities. I felt sorry for the boys because the idea at half-time was to try to win the second half - a simple message.

    "We got punished by one or two errors. The difference in the first half was their finishing."

  3. 'Easy on the eye'

    Lincoln 2-7 Liverpool


    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp to BBC Radio 5 Live: “They deserved their two goals.

    “We played a really good football game tonight. It was easy on the eye. We passed the ball and finished situations off. The boys wanted to play football and showed an exceptional attitude.

    “That’s how it should be [Liverpool’s second XI playing like their first]. Wear the shirt and show who you are. I’m happy with everything.

    "Two goals we conceded were not nice, but it's not a massive problem. You can have struggles in a game like this.”

  4. Post update

    Manchester City keep on rolling in this competition. They haven't lost an EFL Cup game in four years!

    Man City 2-1 Bournemouth

    All over! The defending champions are into the fourth round, where they will travel to Burnley.

  9. Post update

    Man City 2-1 Bournemouth

    Good news, Kevin de Bruyne sits up and then gets up and doesn't need to go off. He's good to play out the final few minutes.

  10. Post update

    Man City 2-1 Bournemouth

    Hmmm, this is a concern for Manchester City. Kevin de Bruyne is needed quite a bit of treatment. Pep Guardiola looks understandably concerned.

  11. Post update

    Man City 2-1 Bournemouth

    Lewis Cook is shown a yellow card for a late challenge on Kevin de Bruyne. That'll eat up a couple more seconds with just over two of the four added minutes to go.

  12. Post update

    Man City 2-1 Bournemouth

    The 90 minutes are up and there will be four minutes of injury time. One last push from Bournemouth for an equaliser?

  13. Post update

    Lincoln 2-7 Liverpool

    We call that a niner in the trade.


    Lincoln 2-7 Liverpool

    It's all over. Just the nine goals at Sincil Bank. Liverpool play Arsenal next week.

  15. Post update

    Man City 2-1 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth are starting to tire as the clock ticks down and are struggling to put the Manchester City defence under pressure. Just over three minutes plus stoppage time to go.


    Lincoln 2-7 Liverpool

    Three minutes added on.

  17. GOAL - Lincoln 2-7 Liverpool

    Divock Origi (89 mins)

    Liverpool manage to squeeze in a cheeky seventh. Divock Origi blasts home with a first-time effort from 16 yards out. Takumi Minamino with the assist.

    A classic 'getting in on the act' goal.

  18. Post update

    Lincoln 2-6 Liverpool

    Lincoln get a late corner as Conor McGrandles' shot from distance is deflected.

  19. Post update

    Man City 2-1 Bournemouth

    There's a break in play at the Etihad with Mark Travers down injured after a heavy clash. Thankfully, he is OK to continue after a few minutes of treatment.
