So full time in each of our eight League Cup ties. Late wins for Hull, Fulham and West Ham has seen the cruel mistress of extra time evade us. That is all we have time for on this live blog, but head over here to following the result of the fourth round draw which is about to take place. See you on the other side.

21:50

Full time: Stoke 1-2 Hull

21:47

Goal: Stoke City 1-2 Hull City (Markus Henriksen)

Another late goal and it looks like we have avoided extra time. Henriksen hammers home a clever flick around the corner and heading into stoppage time they take the lead for the first time. Stoke will be sick, having dominated the game.

21:45

So full time in the first six EFL Cup ties tonight, and no extra time to speak of whatsoever. Wins for Bristol City, Manchester United, Sunderland, Southampton, Manchester City and West Ham.

Tottenham are bound to join them as they lead Gillingham 5-0, but Stoke and Hull are set to leave the midnight oil burning as they are locked at 1-1 heading into the closing minutes.

21:41

Goal: West Ham 1-0 Accrington Stanley (Dimitri Payet)

All over at Sixfields where Manchester United have survived a scare to beat Northampton Town. Jose Mourinho ends a run of three straight defeats. They're into the hat for the last 16.

21:36

Goal: Fulham 1-2 Bristol City (Tammy Abraham)

21:36

West Ham down to ten men at the London Stadium after Arthur Masuaku goes off injured. All three subs used. A bad night gets even worse for the Hammers.

21:33

Marcus Edwards, the player Mauricio Pochettino compared to Lionel Messi before the game, about to come on for his Tottenham debut.

21:28

Goal: Tottenham 5-0 Gillingham (Erik Lamela)

This is cruel on the League One side now. Erik Lamela gets in on the act, with Janssen supplying the goal once again as the Argentine stroked home from the edge of the box.

21:26

Goal: Tottenham 4-0 Gillingham (Josh Onomah)

It's raining goals at White Hart Lane and Spurs have a fourth, with little under 25 minutes left. Janssen tees up Josh Onmah, who slides home through Nelson. His first senior goal for the club.

21:23

Goal: QPR 1-2 Sunderland (Paddy McNair)

The Black Cats turn it around as McNair is in the right place at the right time again to sweep home.

21:21

Goal: Northampton 1-3 Manchester United (Marcus Rashford)

A horror of a night continues for Adam Smith. His error led to the opening goal and there is no hiding place again as he totally miss-kicks a long punt downfield which Rashford doesn't give up, and the England man benefits and smashes into an empty net.

21:16

Goal: QPR 1-1 Sunderland (Paddy McNair)

21:14

Goal: Northampton 1-2 Manchester United (Ander Herrera)

The break-through at last for the visitors. Marcus Rashford tees up Herrera, who goes one better than his strike earlier when he hit the woodwork but driving the bal past Smith.

21:13

Goal: Tottenham 3-0 Gillingham (Vincent Janssen)

Perfect night for Spurs as Trippier is felled by in the box and Janssen steps up and sends Nelson the wrong way.

21:08

Back underway at White Hart Lane and the Britannia.

21:05

Ander Herrera smashes the post from a shot from 25 yards. Northampton dropping deeper and deeper as the half if progressing. Playing for penalties already?

21:03

Goal: QPR 1-0 Sunderland (Sandro)

Deadlock broken at Loftus Road as Sandro swivels and shoots in one movement and finds the bottom corner.

21:00

Fosu-Mensah and Depay off for United as Ibrahimovic and Rashford come on after 54 minutes. Some compliment to Northampton.
