Manchester United progressed to the next round as well after defeating arch-rivals Liverpool 1-0 at Old Trafford. Javier Hernandez scored the only goal of the match, after the Mexican slotted home from close range, meeting a delicious corner from Wayne Rooney.

The Red Devils, courtesy of that victory have set up a date with Norwich City at home. Derby rivals Manchester City defeated Wigan convincingly on Tuesday night and will travel to Tyneside to face Alan Pardew’s Newcastle United in the next round.

North London outfit Tottenham will take on Premier League newcomer Hull City while manager-less Sunderland will face Mauricio Pochettino’s Southampton.
