Carabao Cup Third Round came with a lot of outstanding performances and also discovery of new talents. Interestingly, the three biggest clubs in London were eliminated from the competition in the third round.
Clubs that have previously participated in European competition this season are now included in the Carabao Cup third round, which took place on Wednesday, November 9, 2022.
Along the road, there were several upsets, including one Premier League team losing to lower league team and other minor surprises in a few of the all-top flight matches.
Here is a summary of the Carabao Cup games played last night.
Manchester City defeated Chelsea 2-0
At the Etihad Stadium, Manchester City enjoyed a comfortable lead over Chelsea, but they still needed a strong performance from backup goalkeeper Stefan Ortega to secure the victory.
The goals from City were scored in the second half by Riyad Mahrez and Julian Alvarez, but the game as a whole was greatly impacted by two Ortega saves in the first half and one in the second.
Liverpool 0-0 Derby County (3-2 on penalties)
In order to win the game on penalties, Jurgen Klopp fielded a nearly unrecognizable Liverpool squad against Derby. Caoimhin Kelleher, the backup goalkeeper, had to come through.
Despite the clear mismatch before kickoff, both teams had a chance to win this game in 90 minutes, even though the chances weren’t abundant.
However, Kelleher made three saves in the shootout to make the decision.
Arsenal 1-3 Brighton
After finally earning their first victory under new manager Roberto De Zerbi, Brighton recently defeated Wolves and Chelsea in the Premier League. They are now carrying that momentum into the Carabao Cup.
Danny Welbeck gave Arsenal the lead in this match, but the Seagulls made it a memorable evening with three consecutive goals from Welbeck, Kaoru Mitoma, and Tariq Lamptey.
Nottingham Forest 2-0 Tottenham
By prolonging an already difficult period, Jesse Lingard significantly contributed to the elimination of Tottenham from the tournament and increased pressure on Spurs manager Antonio Conte.
Just before the hour mark, two fast goals sealed Forest’s fate. Renan Lodi received the first goal thanks to Lingard, who also scored the second. After Orel Mangala was dismissed after receiving two yellow cards within a few minutes, the hosts even played the final 15 minutes with just 10 players.
West Ham 2-2 Blackburn (9–10 in penalty kicks)
West Ham was eliminated from the Carabao Cup on its home turf after conceding an equalizer to Blackburn in the 88th minute and losing a thrilling 20-kick penalty shootout.
Newcastle drew 0-0 at Crystal Palace (Won 3-2 on penalties)
Over the course of the game at St. James’ Park, there was no difference between Newcastle and Crystal Palace, with both managers used the opportunity to do some player rotation.
The game was dominated by Newcastle in terms of possession and efforts, however the penalty shootout was ultimately decided by Nick Pope’s three saves.
For the visitors from the Championship, Jack Vale scored first. With goals from Michail Antonio and Pablo Fornals, the Hammers thought they had done enough to win, but Ben Brereton Diaz tied the score at 2-2. After then, the sides converted 19 straight penalties until Angelo Ogbonna’s miss.
Southampton 1-1 Sheffield Wednesday (6-5 on penalties)
Southampton needed penalties to defeat League One’s Sheffield Wednesday and advance to the next round as they were about to name a new manager.
For Wednesday, Josh Windass scored the game’s first goal midway through the first half, and James Ward-Prowse added a penalty just before the break. Both players were perfect in the shootout until Dominic Iorfa missed his 12th attempt in sudden death.
Wolves 1-0 Leeds
In Molineux, where both teams made numerous substitutions, Wolves and Leeds were separated by just one goal, scored by Boubacar Traore with five minutes remaining.
The game didn’t include many high-caliber scoring opportunities, but a combination goal from Wolves substitutes Daniel Podence and the aforementioned Traore made all the difference.
