Leighton Baines converted a penalty chance in 2nd half injury time, allowing Everton to escape The Brittania with a point in a 1-1 final.

It was a point Everton didn't deserve today as they looked sluggish against a more organized Stoke side. Nevertheless, Jermaine Pennant was slapped with the foul, bringing Leon Osman down in the box to set Baines up for his first goal since returning from a lenghty injury spell. He is still the most productive defender in fantasy and should see a jump in price with a home match against Norwich next. Scoop him up immediately if you want him.

Marcus Rashford (2), Jesse Lingard, and Anthony Martial all got their names on the scoresheet as Manchester United eased past Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup 3rd Round.

Only Rashford and Juan Mata remained from the team which started against Everton on Saturday, with Romero and Carrick making their season bows. Rashford put United ahead after Carrick's driven pass along the floor was spun into the path of Rashford by Jesse Lingard. The young England international provided a composed chipped finish to beat Ripley. He had his brace before the 20th minute, utilising the momentum created by spinning his marker to drive a shot in from 20 yards. United's third followed soon after on 36' when Lingard's heavily deflected effort found its way into the Burton net. Luke Shaw made his first appearance of the season off the bench in the second-half and he showed plenty of attacking intent. As did Anthony Martial who had been a thorn in Burton's side all evening. The Frenchman took his goal well in the second half but could have had three. Burton got a late consolation in injury time thanks to sub GK Pereira dropping the ball.

Burnley have signed free agent goalkeeper Anders Lindergaard to a contract that will last until the end of this season.

Lindegaard was once a part of the final seasons at Manchester United with Sir Alex Ferguson in charge, but since has been fading farther and farther away from top flight action. He joined West Brom in 2015 but was loaned out to Preston North End, where he last saw action. Nick Pope has done an adequate job thus far in place of the injured Tom Heaton, so one would assume Pope will have to have a bad game for Lindegaard to get a shot at run in the side. He is not worth a roster spot in any fantasy format at this point, even owners of Heaton in draft leagues.

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan sustained yet another knee injury in Wednesday's League Cup win.

The German international crumpled to the ground after a tackle from Claudio Yacob in the 58th minute of a 2-1 win. It was Gundogan's first start since last December, when he suffered a torn ACL, after he returned to action over the weekend against Watford. "(Gundogan) has a small issue with his knee but not like before and I don’t think it will be anything serious," Guardiola told the media after the match.

Eden Hazard made his first start of the season in the club's 5-1 win in the League Cup against Nottingham Forest.

The Belgian midfielder sustained an ankle injury in June while on international duty, causing him to miss three months before returning earlier this month. However, manager Antonio Conte wanted to ease Hazard back into the starting XI, which he finally did as he completed the full match Wednesday. The winger recorded two assists for the Blues, helping MIchy Batshuayi secure a hat-trick in the process. Said Conte: "I hope to be with him at the final step from his injury. In my [playing] career I was injured a lot and I have a bit of experience. With him, we are managing the situation well...Eden is a top player, and he improved a lot. He can continue to improve in his career and become one of the best."

Bournemouth overcame Brighton for the second time in seven days in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday evening after extra time.

Both managers made extensive changes to their sides for the game, with just Liam Rosenior, Ryan Fraser, and Simon Francis surviving from the starting eleven's of their respective sides from the previous clash on Friday. Steve Cook and Junior Stanislas returned from injuries for the Cherries. Izquierdo hinted at his ability early in the encounter, forcing Boruc into a save whilst Lys Mousset and Jordan Ibe kept Brigton 'keeper Tim Krul's hands warm. The Cherries had the bulk of the second half chances too, with Stanislas missing on a number of occasions. Jamie Murphy was put through by a stray back-pass from Steve Cook but Boruc stopped his attempt. King took his goal well, beating a few defenders before placing the ball in the corner beyond Krul. Brighton offered little in ET with Bournemouth continuing to pepper Brighton's goal to no avail.

Brighton may have been defeated 1-0 after extra-time in the Carabao Cup third round but Chris Hughton was happy with his side's performance.

Only Liam Rosenior remained from the Brighton side which faced the same opposition in the league on Friday, with Tim Krul starting between the sticks behind a three man defence. "I'm delighted with the performance, not the result, because it's a competition we wanted to go through in," said the Seagulls' manager. Hughton started two novice Irishmen in midfield, Jayson Molumby and Dessie Hutchinson, whilst new arrivals Jose Izquierdo and Ezequiel Schelotto played 90 minutes each. Hughton also explained that he tried a 3-4-3 to counteract Eddie Howe's men seizing control of possession for long periods, even though they had little time to practice it.

Less than 24 hours after making his debut for the club in the Carabao Cup, Tim Krul has signed for Brighton permanently from Newcastle.

Krul had been at Newcastle since 2005 when he first arrived on English shores from the Dutch league, however a series of injuries which began whilst on international duty for the Netherlands in October 2015 saw him fall out of favour on Tyneside with Rafa Benitez. Krul was tested on numerous occasions by Bournemouth in his bow for the Seagulls, doing well to keep the scoreline to 1-0. He is currently behind Maty Ryan in the pecking order though he can realistically hope to break into the side as the season progresses. Krul has been at Brighton a few weeks, having originally signed for a season-long loan. He has signed a one-year contract after making the move permanent.

Huddersfield Town midfielder Danny Williams has emerged as an early for the trip to Turf Moor after picking up a foot injury last weekend.

The US international missed the Carabao Cup loss at Crystal Palace on Tuesday night as tests continue with Williams due for a scan within the next 24 hours. Should he miss out at Burnley, then David Wagner may look to Philip Billing to sit alongside Aaron Mooy in a 4-2-3-1. The Terriers are also sweating on the fitness of Steve Mounie who is receiving treatment for a heel injury but Colin Quaner will definitely miss game week six after sustaining a calf strain during his cameo against Leicester City. Martin Cranie and Jonathan Hogg have just returned to fitness following long-term injuries but Kasey Palmer and Jon Stankovic won’t be available for at least another two months.

Mesut Ozil has returned to training after missing the 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge through injury.

Speaking ahead of the Carabao Cup tie against Doncaster Rovers, Arsène Wenger revealed the German international is training again, but he wouldn’t be involved due to "a little inflammation of his knee." Arsenal don’t play again until Monday evening, which is likely to mean Ozil will be available for selection, although following an impressive team display last weekend I wouldn’t envisage wholesale changes. Danny Welbeck [groin] has been ruled out until after the international break, but Alexis Sanchez is better placed in terms of fitness after more competitive minutes midweek. Francis Coquelin [hamstring] will remain on the sidelines but the Arsenal boss can look to Jack Wilshere who made his first start of the season on Wednesday night.

Leicester City overcame the absence of Jamie Vardy and a torrid first-half performance as they beat Liverpool 2-0 in the third round of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.

It was true game of two halves for Craig Shakespeare's side. Liverpool dominated the opening 45 minutes, creating chance after change, but were unable to put the ball in the back of the net. Having kept the match level despite conceding 18 shots in the first period, the tide turn with the second half introduction of Shinji Okazaki. The Japan international gave the Foxes the lead in the 66th minute before Islam Slimani sent the King Power Stadium into a frenzy with a stunning strike from the substitute's pass. While the result sends Leicester into the fourth round of the Carabao Cup for the first time since 2010, the two sides will meet again on Saturday in the Premier League.

West Ham secured their place in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup by defeating League One side Bolton 3-0 at the London Stadium on Tuesday.

Slaven Bilic made 10 changes to his side who drew 0-0 with West Brom at the weekend, handing Montenegro international Sead Haksabanovic his debut and Marko Arnautovic his first start since being sent off against Southampton in late August. Signed from Stoke City for £25m this summer, Arnautovic put in his best effort as a Hammer, providing a free-kick for Angelo Ogbonna's powerful header to opening the score and set up Diafra Sahka in the 31st minute. The second half saw the Hammers struggle to find chances until Arthur Masuaku blasted a thunderous strike into the top corner from 25 yards in stoppage time. The cup win also marked the return of captain Mark Noble, who missed the last two league matches with a hamstring injury, and winger Nathan Holland's first-team debut off the bench.
