Newcastle out, Everton safe
Newcastle’s miserable start to the season suffered another blow with a dramatic late 3-1 defeat to Championship side Nottingham Forest yesterday (Thailand time) to crash out of the League Cup in the second round.
There was no such strife for Premier League high-fliers Everton and Watford, who continued their unbeaten starts to the campaign with victories over Rotherham and Reading respectively.
One goal from Gylfi Sigurdsson and a double from Dominic Calvert-Lewin eased Marco Silva’s Everton into the next round with a 3-1 win at Goodison.
Watford, joint top of the Premier League with three wins from three, fielded a much-weakened team at Reading but still ran out 2-0 winners.
Millwall also reached round three after twice coming from behind to beat Plymouth 3-2.
