Latest League Cup fixtures, results and reports
8.15pm: Back in London, Arsenal are yet to get going at home to Coventry who have brought 8,000 fans to the Emirates. The League One side have started promisingly.
8.10pm: Tottenham could do with switching up a gear at Brunton Park if they want to enjoy a comfortable evening. Some slack passing from AVB's side.
8.04pm: GOAL! Liverpool's season goes from bad to worse as Gabriel Tamas heads West Brom in front. Steve Clarke is looking for his second win over his former side this season after beating them 3-0 in the Premier League.
8.00pm: GOALS! Finally we have something to report as QPR go ahead against Reading and then concede immediately. Junior Hoilett scored first before Kaspars Gorkss equalised within seconds. The ex-Ranger did not celebrate against his former side.
7.58pm: Good chance for Newcastle as Ameobi cushions the ball down for Gosling but he tries the spectacular and gets it all wrong. Should have got that on target.
7.57pm: Newcastle have also weathered the early storm at Old Trafford and they will be looking to take advantage of a youthful Man United defence.
7.54pm: After a bright opening from Carlisle, Tottenham have started to get to grips with the game and Falque has a shot saved.

Although he leeds a fairly experienced United side, a chronic defensive injury list was shown in the fact their entire back four had just two appearances between them.
Marnick Vermijl and Scott Wooton were handed their debuts, whilst Michael Keane's only first-team experience was as a substitute at Aldershot in last season's competition.
For Newcastle, Cheick Tiote makes only his second appearance of the season, whilst Fabricio Coloccini returned after a three-match absence with a hamstring injury.
