English League Cup result: Leicester 0-2 Arsenal Chelsea 6-0 Barnsley. This set up possible Liverpool clash in the Carabao Cup.
Arsenal are through to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup after a 2-0 win over Leicester.
Christian Fuchs’ second-half own goal gave the Gunners the lead and Eddie Nketiah bundled home in stoppage time to add gloss to the victory for a Mikel Arteta’s side that once again did not include Mesut Ozil.
The result maintains their strong start to the season and secures a possible trip to Anfield to face Liverpool if the Premier League champions can beat Lincoln City on Thursday.
Kai Havertz scored a hat-trick as Chelsea romped to a 6-0 victory against Barnsley and into the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.
Tammy Abraham opened the scoring for a much-changed Chelsea side, and Havertz doubled their lead before the break. Ross Barkley then notched a third early in the second half at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, before Havertz added two more.
It was a night of good news for Chelsea’s new signings and Frank Lampard as Thiago Silva made his debut for the club, and Ben Chilwell also enjoyed his first appearance, stepping off the bench to assist a late sixth for fellow substitute Olivier Giroud.
