Jermain Defoe scores in Tottenham's 4-0 win at Aston Villa.

A review of Tuesday night's action in the Capital One Cup.

Tottenham and Manchester City amassed nine goals between them as they powered into the fourth round of the Capital One Cup with easy victories.

Spurs thumped Barclays Premier League rivals Aston Villa 4-0 with Jermain Defoe scoring twice and Paulinho and Nacer Chadli also hitting the target.

City continued where they left off in Sunday's 4-1 drubbing of Manchester United by putting Wigan to the sword.

Stevan Jovetic was on target twice, scoring his first goals for the club, while Edin Dzeko, Yaya Toure and Jesus Navas also struck in the 5-0 rout at the Etihad Stadium.

Fernando Torres scored one and made the other as Chelsea saw off Swindon 2-0.

The Spanish striker edged Chelsea in front just before the half-hour mark, tapping home after Wes Foderingham could only parry a Mata effort into his path.

Ramires scored the second goal after good work from Torres let the Blues double their lead before the break.

Fulham fought back from 1-0 down to overcome Everton 2-1 with Darren Bent netting a 69th-minute winner after Dimitar Berbatov had cancelled out Steven Naismith's opener.

Sunderland made an emphatic start to life without sacked manager Paolo Di Canio by dispatching Peterborough 2-0 with strikes from Emanuele Giaccherini and Valentin Roberge.

Cardiff staged their own fightback after trailing 2-0 to West Ham, only for Sam Allardyce's side to finish 3-2 winners through a late header by Ricardo Vaz Te.

Ravel Morrison and Matthew Jarvis fired the Hammers ahead and Cardiff responded through Craig Noone and Peter Odemwingie, only to have their hearts broken by Vaz Te.

Gary Hooper was on target six minutes from the end of extra time as Norwich overcame Watford 3-2 at Vicarage Road.

Hooper hit the injury-time equaliser and Josh Murphy also scored as Norwich fought back from a 2-0 deficit built on strikes by Marco Faraoni and Javier Acuna.

Danny Ings nodded in Burnley's winner in a 2-1 home victory over Nottingham Forest having already hauled his side back into contention with the equaliser of Matt Derbyshire's opener.

There were few fireworks at the KC Stadium where Hull's Nick Proschwitz produced the only goal against Huddersfield.

Derby slumped to their first away defeat of the season, losing 2-1 to Leicester despite taking the lead through Chris Martin.

Anthony Knockaert and Danny Drinkwater were on target to ensure Leicester progressed into the last 16.

Gaston Ramirez and Jos Hooiveld ensured Southampton progressed in a 2-0 victory over Bristol City, but Saints were made to work for their place in the next round.

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
