'I was concerned'

Arsenal 1-0 Doncaster

Arsenal

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: "Yes that was hard work, credit to Doncaster, they kept going. We started well in the first 35 minutes but we decreased slowly.

"We lost our collective game and couldn't score the second goal, it became more difficult. We wanted to score goals we were just lacking. It was a typical cup game.

"I was concerned, they looked dangerous."

Wilshere ends a long wait

'Could we survive without this cup?'

Manchester United 4-1 Burton Albion

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho: “Anthony Martial wanted to do things – some he did amazingly well, others not so well but he was always trying and that commitment and happiness on the pitch is always important.

“If the competition is an official competition then it is important for Manchester United and for me as a manager.

“If you ask me could the English football survive or even be better without this competition? Maybe, maybe we would be fresher for European competition for example. But we have this competition, we have to respect the sponsors, we have to respect the opponents and a lot of us are trying to do our best.”

Since his debut for the club, Marcus Rashford has been directly involved in 32 goals in all competitions for Manchester United (24 goals, 8 assists).

Only Zlatan Ibrahimovic (28 goals, 9 assists) has been involved in more that time (Martial also 32, 19 goals, 13 assists).

That concludes the draw. Pick of the bunch? Err, Chelsea v Everton...?

Handshakes all round

Man Utd 4-1 Burton Albion

Simon Stone

BBC Sport at Old Trafford

The last time Jose Mourinho went into his opponents' technical area, he ended up in a bit of an argument with Mark Hughes at Stoke.

Tonight, Mourinho watched the last few seconds in front of the Burton dug-out.

He had just shaked hands and was about to walk off following the visitors' consolation but thought better of it.

HITS THE WOODWORK

West Brom 1-2 Manchester City

Still playing at the Hawthorns - and that should be 2-2! Hal Robson-Kanu hits the outside of the post! A really good chance!

DRAW COMING UP

The fourth round draw is coming up...

FULL-TIME

Manchester United 4-1 Burton Albion

GOAL - Manchester United 4-1 Burton Albion

Lloyd Dyer (90 mins)

Manchester United threw on young keeper Joel Pereira a few minutes ago, and he's had a nightmare. A header hits the bar, Pereira juggles the loose ball, collides with his own player and drops it for Lloyd Dyer, who thrashes home.

Time to scrap the League Cup. If Burton are playing reserves there's really no point to it anymore.

Pete, Derby

CLOSE!

Manchester United 4-0 Burton Albion

Anthony Martial is over a free-kick for United, he curls one - into the side-netting!

Chris Lord: At Emirates, frustrating game, Wilshere doesn't look to shoot! disinterest from Sanchez, first off the pitch, not with others

Alex Barton: Oumar Niasse about to become a cult hero

Manchester United 4-0 Burton Albion

Burton have been soundly beaten but they keep plugging away, as Lloyd Dyer runs into the area on the left and cracks a rising shot - over the top.

West Brom 1-2 Manchester City

So with eight or so minutes left of the two 20:00 BST matches the only chance of extra time looks like being at the Hawthorns. There have been 20 shots on goal tonight.

FULL-TIME

Arsenal 1-0 Doncaster

CLOSE!

West Brom 1-2 Manchester City

Still time for Albion to force another leveller and Salomon Rondon is very close to finding it! He meets a cross from the right with a fine header which fizzes past the post.

Still 10 minutes left at The Hawthorns.

Manchester United 4-0 Burton Albion

Almost a fifth at Old Trafford as Anthony Martial sprints into the box and fires across goal - just wide!

United have also changed their goalkeeper. Showboating stuff.

FULL-TIME

Chelsea 5-1 Nottingham Forest

GOAL - West Brom 1-2 Manchester City

Leroy Sane (77 mins)

What a brilliant player this lad is. West Brom had another chance of their own but City counter at pace, Leroy Sane sprints at full speed down the right, manipulates the ball on to his left foot and places a curler perfectly into the top corner. Brilliant goal.

GOAL - Chelsea 5-1 Nottingham Forest

Tendayi Darikwa (90 mins)

Right at the end, Tendayi Darikwa pokes home for Forest.

FULL-TIME

Everton 3-0 Sunderland

A needed win.

Everton 3-0 Sunderland

Ian Dennis

Speaking on Radio 5 live

Oumar Niasse, reintegrated into the Everton squad, will remember his first goal for the club.

It was superbly taken off his chest and clipped home with the outside of his right foot.

It's only his eighth appearance for the club and his first since his loan spell at Hull City last season.

Oumar Niasse
PA

CLOSE!

West Brom 1-1 Manchester City

Manchester City are suddenly all over the shop at the back and West Brom should really be ahead! Matty Phillips gets clear on the right and picks out Hal Robson-Kanu, maybe eight yards out, and he sidefoots wide!

City have crumbled after Ilkay Gundogan went off.

Standing ovation for Rashford

Man Utd 4-0 Burton Albion

Simon Stone

BBC Sport at Old Trafford

There was no hat-trick for Marcus Rashford at Old Trafford tonight but he did get a standing ovation after making his way straight down the tunnel after being replaced by Scott McTominay.

Rashford scored 11 goals in the whole of last season. That is five so far this one now - and 24 overall, which is three more than Nemanja Vidic for what it's worth.
