Moon Of Liberty Soccerround – League Cup Round 2



League Cup – Round 2

Both Liverpool and Everton eased through to round 3 of the League Cup. Liverpool picked a strong side and were 2-0 up by half time through Divock Origi and Roberto Firmino. An own goal from Tom Naylor and a brace from Daniel Sturridge completed a comfortable 5-0 win. Everton passage was similarly straight forward against Yeovil with Aaron Lennon, Ross Barkley and two from Arouna Kone seeing the Toffeemen through 4-0. Blackpool could not pull off a surprise at Crystal Palace with Scott Dann and Connor Wickham getting the goals in a deserved and straight forward 2-0 win for the London side.

The Moon’s two Championship sides were involved in much tighter affairs. Jamie Paterson gave Nottingham Forest the lead at Millwall but were pegged back in the second half by Sahun Williams lob from all of 50 yards with the Forest keeper off his line. The winner came with three minutes to go as Oliver Burke set up Lars Veldwijk to thump home the winner. There was also a dramatic end at Pride Park as Mike Jones injury time strike for Carlisle equalised Darren Bent’s opener. The game went to penalties with Scott Carson saving Carlisle’s 16th penalty with the score at 13-13. Slovenian Timi Max Elsnic was the hero stepping up to score the winning penalty.

In the Third Round draw two of the Moon’s sides will meet as Derby County will host Liverpool. Champions Leicester City join in Round 3 and will be at home to Chelsea. Forest will host Arsenal while Everton have been drawn at home to Norwich City.
