Man City eliminated from League Cup at Newcastle

Manchester City crashed out of the League Cup with a 1-0 defeat at Newcastle United, while Arsenal, Chelsea, and Liverpool advanced to the last 16.

Manchester City suffered a shocking defeat in the League Cup, losing 1-0 to Newcastle United. Meanwhile, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Liverpool secured their spots in the last 16 of the competition.

The only goal of the match was scored by Alexander Isak at Saint James' Park. Both teams had made significant changes to their lineups, with City leaving Erling Haaland on the bench for the entire game. This decision proved costly as City lacked firepower in their attack.

Newcastle took control of the game after halftime when Anthony Gordon and Bruno Guimaraes were introduced by their manager, Eddie Howe. It was Isak who capitalized on a burst from Joelinton to slot the ball into the net at the far post, securing the victory for Newcastle.

Howe expressed his belief that this win could elevate his team's performance. He highlighted the impact of players like Gordon and Bruno, who brought a high level of quality to the game.

Newcastle's reward for their victory is a fourth-round trip to face Manchester United, a repeat of last season's final.

In another match, Chelsea managed to avoid a deepening crisis at Stamford Bridge with a 1-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion. Nicolas Jackson scored the only goal of the game, coolly finishing off a pass from Cole Palmer. Chelsea will now face Blackburn Rovers in the next round.

Arsenal also secured a 1-0 victory against Brentford, with Reiss Nelson scoring the decisive goal. Despite a strong second-half performance from Brentford, Aaron Ramsdale's brilliant save denied them an equalizer. Arsenal's next opponent will be West Ham United.

Liverpool faced an early setback in their match against Championship leaders Leicester City, conceding a goal within three minutes. However, they fought back and secured a 3-1 victory. Cody Gakpo scored the equalizer, assisted by Ryan Gravenberch, before Dominik Szoboszlai's stunning strike gave Liverpool the lead. Diogo Jota's goal sealed the win for Jurgen Klopp's side. Liverpool will now face Bournemouth in the fourth round.

Everton continued their positive momentum with a 2-1 victory over Aston Villa. James Garner and Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored the goals for Everton, avenging their 4-0 defeat to Villa in the Premier League last month.

Overall, the League Cup provided thrilling matches and surprising results. The upcoming fourth-round fixtures promise more exciting encounters, with teams like Manchester United, Liverpool, and Arsenal facing tough opponents. The competition continues to showcase the talent and competitiveness of English football.
