Tony Bainbridge: Accrington are leaving Wham to play WHam.  

Actually, I can't leave without giving this some love. Superb work!

Right, it's time for us to bring things to a close. It looks like Joe Hart has played his last game for Manchester City, but will it be a decision Pep Guardiola will come to regret?

After all, a good Hart these days is hard to find...

I'll leave you with that beauty. See ya!

The draw for that is coming up shortly...

Accrington Stanley 1-0 Burnley

What drama! Accrington Stanley are through to the third round of the EFL Cup after snatching victory at the death. 

GOAL - Accrington Stanley 1-0 Burnley

Matt Pearson (120 mins)

Shock o'clock!! It looked like nothing was going to separate these two sides but Accrington Stanley looked to have snatched it at the death! 

Matt Pearson sweeps home in a goalmouth scramble and Accrington are on the verge of a famous win!

GOAL - Fulham 2-1 Middlesbrough

Lasse vigen Christensen (113 mins)

It looks like Championship side Fulham are about to send Premier League Middlesbrough out of the EFL Cup. The hosts have taken the lead with just seven minutes to go. Can they hold on?

Accrington 0-0 Burnley

Accrington Stanley versus Burnley is well into extra time. Still no goals and sadly there doesn't look like being one either. I'm not even feeling confident for penalties.

That dog on the roof is also no longer on the roof. 

'Joe is still our player'

Pep Guardiola has been speaking to the press about Joe Hart. Here is what he had to say:

"Joe is still our player. I know he’s a legend for this club. It was a good night for everybody and Joe is included in that.

"I’m here to take decisions. I can’t deny what I feel. I was honest with Joe, the club and myself and that’s what I try to do

"I can completely understand if the fans are not happy. Joe did a lot with this club in the years he’s been, more than I have done."

James: Oh come on, Gary! Those Wham/Accrington/Burnley puns were pure comedy gold!   

I'll admit it. They were. 

I think I'm jealous that they were better than anything I could come up with.

'Pigs do fly'

Manchester City keeper Joe Hart is told by BT Sport that he had a 100% distribution record in the game.

"Pigs do fly," he replies with a smile.

Hart adds: "We have got a top manager and he is going to have his opinion on things. Tonight I played and enjoyed every moment of it. The [situation] is what it is."

'City is a special place for me'

Manchester City keeper Joe Hart, speaking to BT Sport: "That was a really special night for me. We all know there is a situation going on. This is a special place for me, I've made no secret of that. Situations occur in football. We are men and we get on with it."

Joe Hart is speaking to BT Sport now. He talks about Manchester City being a special club, but he sounds like a person that has accepted it is time to move on.

Full quotes to follow.
