Manchester City are in the quarter-finals!

The final whistle goes at the Etihad, where City have beatenSouthamptonslightly less comfortably than it appeared they would a little earlier in the evening.

Sunderland’s Luke O’Nienhas just been tripped in the box, but somehow the referee doesn’t give a potentially decisive penalty! Meanwhile at the Pirelli Stadium Demarai Gray is played through, takes the ball round the outrushing keeper, but his left-foot, side-footed shot is feeble and a defender clears.

Burton have a chance to equalize,but Sarkic appears to panic as the goalkeeper hares out towards him, and blasts over the bar.

GOAL! Crawley 1-3 Colchester (Gambin, 79 mins!

A cross from the right, and Luke Gambin controls brilliantly, turns and slams the ball into the roof of the net!

GOAL! Oxford 1-1 Sunderland (McNulty, 78 mins)

An equaliser for Sunderland! It’s a bit messy: a corner is flicked on, bounces off a defender’s back and finds McNulty, who converts from close range!

Southampton have hada shot on target! And three shots in total! A massive turnaround in their fortunes at the Etihad.

Everton hit the woodwork again!This time it’s Lucas Digne, with a 25 – yard free-kick that clips the top of the wall, and then the top of the bar on its way over. How long canWatfordsurvive this onslaught?

Burton nearly equalize!From a corner, the ball is headed towards the far corner, and it was looping in until a defender got in the way, and then it wasn’t. At the other end, Albrighton’s low shot is well saved!

Updated (at 5.) PM EDT

Our five matchesare back under way. On Sky, they are suggesting that only losing toManchester Cityby two or three goals might serve to “build confidence”. City come close to scoring a third, but Bernardo Silva doesn’t anticipate Mahrez’s through-ball, which was really quite excellent.

The ******************************************************************************************************************** (Everton) matchsounds good.

Thoughts: 45 minutes of your life you won’t get back. Moise Kean can go and wait for a cheeseburger in the supper bar on Goodison Road given how pointless it’s been for him on the wing and I’ve seen more life in the cemetery than in the rest of them. Woeful.# EFC

Sunderlandhit the post and Oxford break at speed and in numbers. It looks to have come to nothing when Fosu-Henry’s pass inside manages to evade both of his nearby team-mates but Hall arrives late to smash it into the corner of the net from the edge of the area!

GOAL! Crawley 1-1 Colchester (Norris, 22 mins)

That lead did not last long. Norris equalises with a header that the keeper really should have got a hand to.

GOAL! Crawley 1-0 Colchester (Bulman, (mins)!

That’s an absolute snorter! Bulman runs towards the area, nobody closes him down, so he lashes a rising shot into the far corner from 20 yards or so!

GOAL! Burton 0-2 Leicester (Tielemans, (mins)!

Burton give the ball away in midfield, and again Gray’s pass releases a player on the wing – Praet this time, on the right – whose low center is converted by Tielemans!

“This ROI supporter would like to knowwhere the heck Michael Obafemi is, ”writes JR. “Please don’t tell me he’s injured again.Or would that be better than being healthy and not being selected? He seems like he’s injured an awful lot for a seemingly healthy young fella. ”Earlier today theSouthamptontyro was named in Ireland’s expanded squad for next month’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Denmark, which suggests his fitness is not an issue.

After 11 minutesManchester City have had 89% of possession againstSouthampton, and two shots on target. Eighty-nine percent! The game remains goalless, though.

Sunderland win a corner,and when the ball is knocked down Lynch and Eastwood both race to it. TheSunderlandNo3 gets there first, and is then completely clattered by the Oxford goalkeeper. It’s not a terrible penalty shout, but I think the ball was kicked into Eastwood, which might just have saved him.

GOAL! Burton Albion 0-1 Leicester City (Iheanacho, 7 mins)!

We have our first goal! A lovely pass from Gray to Tielemans shreds Burton’s defense, and his low center is turned in by Iheanacho!

Southampton have not had to wait longfor a reminder of last Friday’s miseries:

“We want 10 ”the immediate chant from Man City fans

(October) , 2019

In other news, here’s a thing I’ve only just realized that is vaguely related toEvertonv Watford: they are two of five Premier League teams whose entire name (including any Cities, Uniteds or Roverses but not the FC bit) is seven letters long or shorter. In the Championship there are two (Fulham and Reading), in League One none (since the demise of Bury) and in League Two one (Walsall). In other words – and I think this is a reasonable way of interpreting the data – the shorter a club’s name the more likely they are to do well.

“I ‘m not aSouthamptonfan, ”writes Peter Oh, “but I have my fingers crossed that Ralph Hasenhüttl will show that this past weekend’s capitulation against Leicester was a false nine.” Very good.

Colchester are the only unchanged side tonight.How many unchanged teams have been named in the entire tournament? Not many, I’d wager.

Crawley Town :Luyambula, Sesay, Tunnicliffe, Dallison , Doherty, Bulman, Allarakhia, Ferguson, Beryly Lubala, Grego-Cox, Enigbokan-Bloomfield.Subs:Morris, Young, Palmer, Nadesan, Nathaniel-George, Sendles-White , Camara.
Colchester:) Gerken, Jackson, Eastman, Prosser, Bramall, Stevenson, Comley, Senior, Adubofour-Poku, Nouble, Norris.Subs:Lapslie, Sowunmi, Jevani Brown, Harriott, Clampin, Gambin, Ross.
Referee:Tony Harrington.

Here are the teams from the Etihad,where 18 – year-old Tommy Doyle makes his senior debut in what will from Southampton’s perspective look like a disappointingly strongManchester Cityside. Still, Pep Guardiola makes nine changes; Southampton make six.

Man City :Bravo, Walker, Otamendi, Garcia , Jose Angelino, Bernardo Silva, Doyle, Foden, Mahrez, Aguero, Gabriel Jesus.Subs:Stones, De Bruyne, Silva, Joao Cancelo, Carson, Bernabe, Poveda -Ocampo.
Southampton:McCarthy, Valery, Stephens, Bednarek, Danso, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Hojbjerg, Armstrong, Long, Boufal.Subs: (Yoshida, Vestergaard, Ings, Adams, Redmond, Gunn, Vokins.)Referee:Jonathan Moss.

Team news is rolling in.Here, to get the ball rolling, is news from Goodison Park, where Everton make five changes andWatfordeight. Given Watford’s current dearth of strikers it is interesting to see the 19 – year-old Sam Dalby, who has been prolific so far this season for the Under – 23 side (and stood out when I saw him in pre-season, albeit against non-league opposition), on the bench.

Hello world

So the Carabao Cup’s fourth round dawns, with five fixtures being played tonight and a further three tomorrow. On a purely numerical basis, this is the week’s big night of cup action, even if tomorrow’s three games (Liverpool v Arsenal, Chelsea v Manchester United and Aston Villa v Wolverhampton, since you ask) all have just a little bit more stardust twinkling upon them than any of tonight’s five. Still, we must all play the hands we are dealt, and these are our aces this evening (all 7. 45 PM BMT kick-offs:

Burton Albion v Leicester City
Burton’s Nigel Clough thinks / hopes that this competition might not be Leicester’s toppermost priority. “It is a competition that they could win, but they are challenging for the top four as well so there will be different thoughts going through his head,” he said of his opposite number, Brendan Rodgers. Leicester’s Danny Ward is expecting a tough old night. “It will be another tough game, they will be right at it,” he says. “I’ve played there before, it’s a small, intimidating ground and they will make it difficult for us, but we know what job we’ve got to go there and do and hopefully we’ll produce another good performance.”

Crawley Town v Colchester UnitedCrawley have not won a game since they last played Colchester on 12 October. “I think we will react, I believe in the squad and in what we are doing,” the manager, Gabriele Cioffi, says. “Sometimes a fall is healthy and I think it happened in the right moment.” Meanwhile theColchestermidfieler Ben Stevenson is feeling optimistic. “We are hoping that we can put on a show,” he says. “We are all really looking forward to it for the traveling fans and looking to get through.”

Everton v Watford
Everton have to cope with the knock-on effects of the weekend defeat at Brighton, in which they sustained damage to their morale and Bernard sustained a knee ligament injury. “The next game is a different competition and if we have a goal, an ambition to go until the end, to the final, we have to win,” says Marco Silva. Meanwhile Quique Sanchez Flores says success in the cup will not impact on Watford’s miserable league form. “What we want is a win,” he says. “To win is always important, but what we realize is when we won in Swansea, it didn’t affect what happened in the league because we didn’t win the next one. It’s different competitions, different line-ups, different goals. So to win tomorrow is important again but it’s nothing concerned about what is happening in the league. It is a completely different scenario. ”

Manchester City v Southampton
Pep Guardiola insists thatSouthamptonare not completely rubbish despite their 0-9 home thrashing by Leicester last Friday. “They are incredible professionals,” said the Spaniard. “The manager will be sad for a moment, for one night, but after that they have to move forward. They will try to do their best. ”Indeed Ilkay Gundogan says tonight’s game“ is not going to be easy, especially for their last result ”. Meanwhile Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg insist the Saints are determined to improve. “We never want to be in this position again or anywhere near it. We have to get back up and make sure this never happens again, ”he says. “We can put quotes out, apologise and say something, but the only thing that’s the real deal now is actions. Actions that are nowhere near what they were against Leicester. We can never show our faces like this again. ”

Oxford United v SunderlandOxford must do without the full-back Chris Cadden and midfielder Cameron Brannagan, who both picked up injuries during Saturday’s 3-0 League One win over Rochdale.Sunderlandalso lost at the weekend, 1-0 at Shrewsbury. “This is a different challenge against an in-form team, who are scoring goals,” says their assistant manager, Steve Parkin. “This is a great opportunity for our lads to progress in a fantastic competition.”

So, that’s what’s on our menu. Let’s do this!
