    Join us again tomorrow from 08:00 GMT. See you then.

  2. Match facts

    Stoke v Sheffield Wednesday (19:45 GMT)

    • Stoke City have reached this stage in two of the last three seasons - they were beaten 2-0 by Manchester United in December 2013.
    • This is Sheffield Wednesday's best performance in the League Cup since making it to the semi-finals in 2001-02, losing to eventual winners Blackburn Rovers.
    • Stoke are winless in four matches in all competitions against Sheffield Wednesday, losing each of the last two at the Britannia Stadium.
    • The Owls have progressed from two of their three League Cup ties v Stoke City, though this is their first meeting in this competition since September 1999.
  3. What the managers say

    Stoke v Sheffield Wednesday (19:45 GMT)

    Stoke boss Mark Hughes: "We won't underestimate Sheffield Wednesday in any way, shape or form. If you look at their progression in the competition they have beaten two Premier League sides already.

    "[But] we're at home and when the draw was made if we're honest enough we can say they were one of the teams we wanted to have."

    Sheffield Wednesday head coach Carlos Carvalhal: "It will be cold and there will be rain probably. It's not a good day to go to the football. There will be 4,000 fans in the rain and cold and they pay for a ticket to see us play. This means we must play to them.

    "We will give 300%, give everything on the pitch and we will do that."

  4. Team news

    Stoke v Sheffield Wednesday (19:45 GMT)

    Ryan Shawcross

    Stoke will be without skipper Ryan Shawcross for the League Cup quarter-final after he was dismissed in the loss to Sunderland.

    Shay Given (knee) and Marc Muniesa (hamstring) are also unavailable.

    Sheffield Wednesday head coach Carlos Carvalhal is without key midfielder Barry Bannan (knee) for the trip to the Potteries.

    Youngster Joe Wildsmith is likely to start in goal, while loan striker Gary Hooper is also eligible.

  5. Match facts

    Middlesbrough v Everton (19:45 GMT)

    • Middlesbrough have twice made the quarter-final stage of the League Cup since lifting the trophy in 2004, losing to Blackburn in 2005-06 and Swansea City in 2012-13 (both 1-0).
    • This is the furthest Everton have got in the League Cup since 2007-08, eventually losing in the semi-final that season to Chelsea.
    • Boro have won the last two League Cup ties against Everton, beating them on penalties in round four in December 2003, and 1-0 in round three in October 2005.
    • The Toffees are unbeaten in six matches in all competitions v Boro, winning four and drawing two. The last time they met, Everton were 2-1 victors in an FA Cup quarter-final clash.
  6. What the managers say

    Middlesbrough v Everton (19:45 GMT)

    Roberto Martinez

    Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka: "To be over-confident would be a big mistake. That can be our biggest problem - to think that because we beat Manchester City and Manchester United and played well against Liverpool and Arsenal, the game will be easy.

    "The reason we did well against those teams is that we worked hard for 90 minutes or more."

    Everton manager Roberto Martinez: "In this competition I don't think divisional status gives you a benefit.

    "You need to be ready for the game with a clear understanding of how to perform. Clearly the mentality in our camp is to be ready - we can't not be ready after the feeling at the weekend [drew 3-3 at Bournemouth]."

  7. Team news

    Middlesbrough v Everton (19:45 GMT)

    Everton boss Roberto Martinez will give James McCarthy (groin) and Gareth Barry (shin) late fitness checks for the League Cup quarter-final against Middlesbrough.

    Martinez also confirmed keeper Joel Robles will start in goal.

    Aitor Karanka has a full-strength Boro squad to choose from after their 2-0 win over Huddersfield on Saturday.

    Striker Cristhian Stuani could make his first start since he recovered from an injury sustained on international duty.

    Joel Robles
  8. Match facts

    Manchester City v Hull (19:45 GMT)

    • Manchester City have lost just one of their last nine meetings with Hull in all competitions (W5 D3).
    • Hull's only victory in any competition away against Manchester City came in the FA Cup in 1930, defeating them 2-1 in round five. Since then, they are winless in nine visits (D3 L6).
    • The only previous League Cup tie between the two sides came in October 1963, as Manchester City ran out 3-0 winners in round three.
    • This is unchartered territory for Hull, having never made it past round four of the League Cup before this season.
  9. What the managers say

    Manchester City v Hull (19:45 GMT)

    Manuel Pellegrini

    Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini: "We are going to make some changes but not so many as Pablo Zabaleta, Vincent Kompany, Eliaquim Mangala and Samir Nasri are all out of this game.

    "Maybe for teams that are out of some competitions - the Champions League or the Capital One Cup - it is easier to play in the Premier League. But we always want to continue in all the competitions."

    Hull boss Steve Bruce: "We have got to have the belief that we can go and take them on. Last year in the Premier League we caused them a few problems.

    "Up until Friday we hadn't been beaten for four months. We've had a really consistent run - we've only lost three out of 22 games, and so we can feel a bit confident. Once it gets to this stage everybody takes it seriously."

  10. Team news

    Manchester City v Hull (19:45 GMT)

    David Silva

    Manchester City playmaker David Silva could make his first start in nearly two months in the League Cup quarter-final against Hull.

    Hull have defender Andy Robertson back after a one-match ban but Michael Dawson (hamstring) remains absent.

    Winger Robert Snodgrass could make his first appearance of the season.

  11. Post update

  12. Murphy tickled pink

    Snooker

    A round of applause for repeatedly missing a pot? It may sound strange, but that was the reality of this rather bizarre passage of play from the UK Championship.

    Needing snookers, Shaun Murphy is forced to try to keep the ball in play while Ben Woollaston attempts to make him pot it - with hilarious consequences.

    Watch the surreal video here.

    British show jumping star Scott Brash admits he will never feel satisfied without an individual Olympic gold medal. 

    Brash, who earlier this year became the first rider to win the Rolex Grand Slam, won team gold alongside Ben Maher, Nick Skelton and Peter Charles at London 2012 but no British show jumper has ever triumphed at the Olympics in an individual event. 

    Scott Brash

  38. Indian cricket faces fine

    Cricket

    Indian cricket authorities face a fine of up to $15,000 (£9,950) after the pitch used for the third Test between India and South Africa in Nagpur was rated as "poor" by match referee Jeff Crowe.

    Forty wickets fell in three days at the VCA Stadium as India beat South Africa by 124 runs with more than two days to spare in the low-scoring contest to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the four-match series.

    Amit Mishra takes a wicket for India

    The report has been forwarded to the Indian cricket board (BCCI), which now has 14 days to respond. After that, ICC general manager of cricket Geoff Allardice and chief match referee Ranjan Madugalle will rule whether the pitch was poor and whether it warrants a penalty.

    "I don't speak to any of the people who are in a high-up position about that," Murray revealed. "I haven't really spoken to them about anything. It's concerning not to have any juniors in the grand slams because that is something we were always very good at. It's not ideal."

    What it will do is open doors to a commercial market generally recognised as one of those that offers huge opportunities for growth.

    It is also worth noting City are now worth approximately 10 times more than when Sheik Mansour bought it in 2008.
