Capital One Cup full draw: Arsenal face Southampton, West Brom vs Hull and Crystal Palace against Newcastle
The full draw
Wednesday 27 August 2014
Aston Villa’s good start to the season came to a halt in spectacular fashion as they were knocked out of the Capital One Cup 1-0 at home by League One side Leyton Orient.
It was a bad night for Villa striker Darren Bent, who missed two gilt-edged chances before Romain Vincelot headed home Orient’s winner with three minutes to go. The defeat sparked sections of the Villa support to call for manager Paul Lambert to go.
Stoke eased to a 3-0 win over League Two Portsmouth, Jonathan Walters scoring twice for Mark Hughes’ side and setting up the third for Peter Crouch against his old club.
In last night’s third-round draw, MK Dons got a home tie with Bradford as their reward for shocking Manchester United, while holders Manchester City face Sheffield Wednesday. There are five all-Premier League games.
Third round draw:
Chelsea v Bolton
Arsenal v Southampton
West Bromwich Albion v Hull City
Crystal Palace v Newcastle
Leyton Orient v Sheffield United
