    That's a wrap from this live page tonight.

    Head over to the BBC Football page for all of the match reports and reaction from across the League Cup and Europe.

  2. Post update

    Liverpool 3-2 Carlisle (On penalties)

    Phil McNulty

    BBC Sport chief football writer

     "Large glass of whatever Adam Bogdan wants from Brendan Rodgers after that - but not a night to ease any pressure on Liverpool's manager."  

  3. Post update

    Liverpool 3-2 Carlisle (On penalties)

    Still no word from Brendan Rodgers or Keith Curle. A late night for all at Anfield. 

  4. Post update

    Liverpool 3-2 Carlisle (On penalties)

    Dejan Lovren's injury looks like an ankle problem, by the way. We'll bring you any news when we get it. 

  5. Post update

    Liverpool 3-2 Carlisle (On penalties)

    Brendan Rodgers was under pressure before tonight's game. What does that result, and performance, do for him?

    Liverpool go through

    Adam Bogdan drags Liverpool into round four of the League Cup with a hat-trick of saves. Hard lines Carlisle United, a sterling effort but it's not quite enough.

    Liverpool go on to face Bournemouth. 

    Adam Bogdan
  8. SAVED!

    Liverpool 3-2 Carlisle - Bastien Hery

    Different coloured boots, a bright pink topknot - you didn't fancy Bastien Hery and his penalty is tame. Another save from Adam Bogdan and Liverpool are through...

  25. Post update

    Liverpool 1-1 Carlisle

    Carlisle defend a corner manfully. The stats say that Liverpool have had 46 shots on goal tonight but it has not felt particularly like that.

  26. Lovren injury

    Liverpool 1- Carlisle

    That does not look good for Dejan Lovren as he is on the gas and air and leaving the field on a stretcher. A rich round of applause and a touch on the shoulder from Brendan Rodgers, the game restarts. There were around three minutes of the 120 left when the defender went down.

    Liverpool 1-1 Carlisle

    A stretcher is on for Dejan Lovren now. He certainly won't be taking a penalty as the clock is stopped. This could be a lengthy stoppage.

  29. Post update

    Dejan Lovren is down and struggling for Liverpool. They have used all of their subs. Will they have to end with 10 men?

    There is a chance now! Danny Ings is played in over the top and he has the pace to get away - but he hooks a shot high and wide.

    Rich applause from the stands and a chant for Ings too.

    Danny Ings
  35. Post update

    Liverpool 1-1 Carlisle

    Carlisle have been so comfortable during extra-time. They are now just 10 minutes away from a penalty shootout. Or do they fancy a late winner?

  36. Manager reaction

    Tottenham 1-2 Arsenal

    Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino speaking to Sky Sports: "I feel bad for the result but not for the performance. It was a good game. 

    "We were unlucky to concede the goals we did. In the second half we dominated the game. There are a lot of positive things we have to take into the game on Saturday. 

    "Harry Kane had some chances to score but was a little bit unlucky."

  48. Post update

    Antony Amodeo: Extra time at home against a team that almost got relegated from the Football League last season. Pathetic

  50. Post update

    Liverpool 1-1 Carlisle

    Moans, groans. Anfield is not a happy camp as Carlisle string together 20+ passes easily. Trust me, you don't get that often in League Two.

  51. Manager reaction

    Tottenham 1-2 Arsenal

    Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: "It was a very intense game. We responded very well physically and mentally and when we stay with 11 players we can win games. 

    "I had hope (when Flamini lined up his second goal) because he watched the ball well, decided what he wanted to do and he did it with belief. 

    "I don't know how close he was to leaving in the summer. I told him he might have to wait for an opportunity."

  52. Fourth-round draw coming up

    Stay tuned as the fourth-round draw is coming up soon. I'll bring you all the ties.

    David White: At Newcastle there is a cloud of apathy engulfing the entire club. The manager is irrelevant, nothing will change under Ashley.

    Liverpool 1-1 Carlisle

    There are 65 places between the two sides in the Football League ladder. A brilliant effort from the League Two side.

    (At least) 30 extra minutes on the cards. 

  56. Player reaction

    Tottenham 1-2 Arsenal

    Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini speaking to Sky Sports: "I'm happy for the team and personally. I've heard many things in the press and I am still here. I don't have any problems with anyone at the club. 

    "It is never easy when you don't play every game. I had a point to prove."

    Harry Low at Selhust Park: "We want five" has  been the chant from the Palace fans and they almost had their wish. Nick Pope tips Yohan Cabaye's thunderbolt onto the  crossbar.

    The best thing Harry Kane has done all night, maybe all season, in a Spurs shirt. It's absolutely brilliant too, wonderful technique to fly into a scissor-kick Mark Hughes style. He meets it, powerful volley but Kieran Gibbs heads it off the line!
