11:53 am on 31 October 2013

Manchester City are through to the quarter-finals of English football's League Cup after they beat Newcastle United 2-nil after extra time.

City, who made 10 changes from the team that played Chelsea in the league on Monday, were far from fluent but came through a testing encounter with goals from substitute Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko in the first period of extra time.

Tottenham earned a late reprieve when Harry Kane made it 2-2 in extra time and then reached the last eight with a penalty shootout victory over Hull.

In the quarter-finals Leicester City play Manchester City, Stoke City play Manchester United, Sunderland or Southampton play Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur play West Ham United.
