City continue on goal trail to storm into quarter-finals

Manchester City picked up where they left off on Sunday, thrashing Wolves 5-2 last night to make the quarter-finals of the League Cup for the third time in five seasons. Nenad Milijas put Wolves ahead after 18 minutes only for City, making 11 changes from the side that won 6-1 at Manchester United, to score three times in four minutes through Adam Johnson, Samir Nasri and Edin Dzeko. An own goal and a second for Dzeko extended the lead, before Jamie O’Hara pulled a goal back. A late equaliser from Louis Saha took Everton and Chelsea into extra time at Goodison Park, after Salomon Kalou had put the visitors ahead with a fortuitous first half strike. Chelsea also suffered a third red card in two matches as Ross Turnbull was dismissed for fouling Saha. Substitute Petr Cech saved Leighton Baines’ resultant penalty. MORE
