In other fixtures, Arsenal will visit the Madejski to play Reading and Aston Villa, the conquerors of champions Manchester City, have been awarded a, theoretically, easier tie - they will travel to play Swindon Town. Liverpool rode on loan signing Nuri Sahin's brace to beat West Brom at the Hawthorns (revenge after slumping to a 0-3 defeat there on the opening day of the season) and Brendan Rodgers will now lead the Reds back to Liberty Stadium, to play Swansea City.
Meanwhile, Andre Villas-Boas appears to be leading Tottenham in the right direction. Spurs walked away with a comfortable 3-0 win at Carlisle United, with goals from Jan Vertonghen, Andros Townsend and Gylfi Sigurdsson.
Some of the other teams through are Sunderland (2-0 at Milton Keynes), Wigan (4-1 at West Ham United) and Middlesbrough (3-1 at Preston).
There was a shock at Elland Road, though, where the fallen Leeds United managed a surprise 2-1 win over tournament favourites Everton. David Moyes' side have had an excellent start to the league season, with 10 points from five games and third place in the table and the Toffees were considered certain bets to move the former Premiership side. Unfortunately, a fourth minute strike by Aidan White and a 71st minute clincher from Rudolph Austin sealed Everton's fate, with Sylvain Distin's goal ten minutes later only a consolation.
At Old Trafford, it was a Tom Cleverly goal that sent Sir Alex Ferguson's side through into the next round, with a 2-1 win over Newcastle United. The game featured a start for England striker Wayne Rooney, who returned after a thigh injury against Fulham in August, and goals for Brazilian midfielder Anderson (44th minute) and Papiss Cisse (62nd minute).
Roberto Di Matteo's side continued to get over the disappointment of their 2-2 Champions League draw with Juventus, by recording a wholly comfortable 6-0 win over Wolves. England defender Gary Cahill started the rout on four minutes and when Blues' youngster Ryan Bertrand doubled the lead inside ten, it was clear Ståle Solbakken was in for a long night. The other scorers were the Spanish trio of Juan Mata, Oriel Romeu and Fernando Torres, with Moses grabbing the last.
Arsenal, meanwhile, also scored six and they too had a debutant goal scorer - French striker Olivier Giroud - who needed Coventry City to visit to help him do that. The other goal scorers for Arsene Wenger's side were Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Andrei Arshavin, Theo Walcott (a brace) and Ignasi Miquel.
