Congratulations all round

Stoke 2-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal: "I must congratulate my team for what we have done in his competition. I congratulate Stoke City, they deserved to win and have a very good quality

"I'm not unhappy with the team, I thank the fans who pushed the team all the way

"The fans are amazing. They are unbelievable. We give everything for them on the pitch." 

Managers love a double negative

'A good answer from the squad'

Man City 4-1 Hull

Manuel Pellegrini

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini: "We only had 72 hours to recover [from the 3-1 league win over Southampton] so it was a very good answer from all the squad. 

"The most important thing is to be involved in all the competitions at this stage. We were very solid and we didn't allow chances for Hull to score."

'Two goals were expectional'

Middlesbrough 0-2 Everton

Roberto Martinez

Everton manager Roberto Martinez on Sky Sports: "It was a fantastic occasion, to be involved in the cup. We had to be mature and control the game and we did that really well, especially after the Bournemouth result. It showed we learnt a lot. 

"It is a terrific feeling to get through to the semi-final and good memory for our football club.

"Middlesbrough had a team who are good on the ball but we defended really well. All in all, the two goals were exceptional pieces of quality. More than anything, after keeping a clean sheet from going 2-0 up was very pleasing."

Great result for Everton tonight!! Lukaku finally looks like the striker Everton spent all that money for!! #bbcfootball

#bbcfootball I think being rejected by JM was good for KDB as he went to Wolfsburg & improved on his game. That's the spirit to success.

JM = Jose Mourinho

KDB = Kevin de Bruyne

'Keep going for more'

Middlesbrough 0-2 Everton

Gerard Deulofeu

Everton midfielder Gerard Deulofeu on Sky Sports: "Playing with Romelu Lukaku is easy for me. I am so happy to reach the next round and want to keep going.

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku on Sky Sports: "We just have to work hard and keep doing what we have been doing. Today was a good result and we were 2-0 up and should have scored more. 

"It is positive for us. The first goal was important but Gerard Deulofeu is doing well for us and I hope he keeps the level for us.

"We are hungry, young players and want to improve game after game. We need to stay grounded and we want to be better."

Not the best performance from Sheffield Wednesday tonight, they struggled. Stoke through to their first semi-final since winning the competition back in 1972.

Pat Nevin

Middlesbrough fought and battled but didn't have it in the final third. Tonight the better team won.

Four minutes of added time at the Britannia Stadium. Going through the motions now. Come on ref, get it over with.

Middlesbrough's run is over. It's Everton who go through to the semi-final.

All over at the Etihad Stadium. Man City comfortably into the last four of the League Cup.

GOAL - Man City 4-1 Hull

Andrew Robertson

Andrew Robertson celebrates


Game over but something for Hull full-back Andrew Robertson to remember.

It's sublime. He collects the ball in his own half before scampering up the pitch ala Mo Farah, exchanging passes with a team-mate, finding himself in the Man City area and dinking a finish past Willy Caballero. 

All too late though and City were caught napping.

Middlesbrough 0-2 Everton

Nope. Low drive from Grant Leadbitter saved by Joel Robles.

Middlesbrough 0-2 Everton

Middlesbrough midfielder Grant Leadbitter standing over a free-kick around 30 yards out...

League Cup quarter-finals

Kevin de Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku, both on the scoresheet for Man City and Everton respectively.

Wonder what Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is thinking. Not good enough for the Blues, ripping it up for their sides now.

Into the last few minutes.

GOAL - Man City 4-0 Hull

Kevin De Bruyne

Kevin De Bruyne celebrates

Getting ugly for Steve Bruce's Hull!

A sublime free-kick from Kevin de Bruyne, into the top corner of the net despite a Hull defender standing on the line.

The Belgian really is a joy to watch.


Middlesbrough 0-2 Everton

It's the away side who look like getting the next goal in this match, but Tomas Meijas does well to push away Kevin Mirallas' strike from the edge of the box.

A 12-minute hat-trick!

GOAL - Man City 3-0 Hull

Kevin De Bruyne

Kevin De Bruyne celebrates

This one is done.

Opportunistic work from Belgian Kevin De Bruyne, who sneaks in to finish after some hazardous Hull defending.

Steve Bruce will be hoping his side don't capitulate completely now.

GOAL - Man City 2-0 Hull

Kelechi Iheanacho

Kelechi Iheanacho scores

City joining Stoke in the last four.

Finally, the long wait for a second goal is over. It's smartly home from the home side as two substitutes combine.

BBC Radio 5 live commentator at the Britannia Stadium

Phil Bardsley celebrates

"The right back Bardsley hit a low drive from around 30 yards in off the post. It went zipping along the turf and Joe Wildsmith couldn't keep it up. Just over 15 minutes to play and they are  on their way."

GOAL - Stoke 2-0 Sheffield Wednesday

Phil Bardsley

Phil Bardsley celebrates

Stoke into the semi-finals, it seems.

Full-back Phil Bardlsey drills in a low, long-range finish which Wednesday goalkeeper Joe Wildsmith can't get to.

Can Wednesday get back into this? On-loan winger Daniel Pudil lets fly with a half-volley with goes narrowly over the crossbar.

It's Man City who look like getting the second goal at the Etihad Stadium. Midfielder Fabian Delph forces Eldin Jakupovic into a save, but still have not added to their 12th minute opener.

Middlesbrough 0-2 Everton

Joel Robles

Another long-range effort from the home side. Midfielder Adam Forshaw with a low drive straight down the throat of Joel Robles, who gathers nicely.


Middlesbrough 0-2 Everton

Leighton Baines

Another man who has been out for a long time returns to action. Everton left-back Leighton Baines makes his first appearance of the season in place of Brendan Galloway.

Baines hasn't had a haircut or shave in the time he has been out.


Man City 1-0 Hull

Hull winger Robert Snodgrass is brought on and makes his first appearance for 15 months. The Scot gets a great reception from the away fans.

73 minutes gone in that game.


Middlesbrough 0-2 Everton

Cristhian Stuani, you have to do better than that lad.

Emilio Nsue whips a beautiful ball in from the right wing and the Uruguayan - free in the box around eight yards out - heads the ball over the crossbar. There was no pressure on him and he could have picked either corner but failed to hit the target.

Man City 1-0 Hull

Nearly a much-needed second for Man City. The returning David Silva with an instinctive effort which goes narrowly wide.

Middlesbrough 0-2 Everton

Ross Barkley

Boro need more urgency. They're allowing Everton to control the tempo of the game and the Toffees are knocking the ball around the park nicely. Boro haven't touched the ball for a couple of minutes now.

Football League latest

It's the Matty Taylor show for Bristol Rovers.

He fires in after a well-worked free-kick, then two minutes later scores a second - again from a free-kick -  to put Rovers 2-0 up against Wycombe in a battle of two sides just outside the play-off places in League Two.

Sheffield Wednesday's Gary Hooper

After performing so well in league and cup, we've chosen today of all days to not turn up #bbcfootball #swfc

Sheffield Wednesday have taken over 4,600 fans to Stoke tonight. Impressive following.

The dream still lives on, but time is ticking away.


Middlesbrough 0-2 Everton

The ball bounces off the shoulder of defender Ramiro Funes Mori inside the Everton box, but referee Roger East waves the Middlesbrough appeals away, much to the anguish of the home supporters.

Would have been harsh.
