Liverpool crash out of Carabao Cup

The Reds of Liverpool were dumped out of the Carabao Cup by Leicester City at the King Power Stadium with goals from Shinji Okazaki and Islam Slimani.

Summer signings Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Dominic Solanke both missed good opportunities for the visitors, who named a much-changed side.

Elsewhere, Roy Hodgson got his first win as Crystal Palace boss at home to Huddersfield and Bristol City shocked Premier League Stoke.

It took Tottenham 65 minutes to break down a resolute Barnsley at Wembley, while Leeds beat Burnley on penalties at Turf Moor.
