Ojo magic sees off brave Exeter

LIVERPOOL 3 EXETER CITY 0

Liverpool face a home tie with West Ham after easing past Exeter City at the second attempt at Anfield. The home side got off to a great start as a swift passing move saw Brad Smith pull the ball back for Joe Allen to score. Liverpool dominated the vast majority of the game but Exeter defended very well and it took until 15 minutes from time for Liverpool to seal it after substitute Sheyi Ojo added some extra energy and it was he who got the second goal with a wonderful lob over the goalkeeper from the edge of the area. Christian Benteke, who missed a number of chances himself and who looked laboured at times, did set up Joao Teixeira to get his first goal for the club to add a third. Liverpool could have had a number more but will be relieved to get this out of the way after coming close to going out in the first game.

Son shines for Spurs

LEICESTER CITY 0 TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 2

A superb display from South Korean Son Hueng-Min was central to Tottenham grabbing a fine victory at Leicester  It was the South Korean who gave Tottenham a first half lead with a brilliant strike from the edge of the box after making some space for himself shifting the ball onto his right side and beating his defender. Leicester’s best chance came from Marc Albrighton who brough a great save from Tottenham keeper Michael Vorm. Harry Kane nearly made it two for Tottenham who finally sealed the game when Hueng-Min’s superb through ball to Nacer Chadli who stayed cool to finish and complete the victory. Tottenham will play Colchester United in round 4. Leicester will now have to concentrate on their title chase.
