A Gareth Barry own goal and Gabriel Agbonlahor strike had pegged City back after Mario Balotelli and Aleksandar Kolarov goals had given them the lead.
Charles N’Zogbia and Agbonlahor again sealed the win in extra time and Roberto Mancini must be wondering what has happened to his defence as they conceded another four goals tonight.
Everton have had a great start to their Premier League campaign, but they came unstuck at Elland Road tonight as they lost 2-1 to Leeds United. Aidan White on four minutes and Rodolph Austin after 70 minutes secured the victory for Leeds. David Moyes will be kicking himself as the Capital One Cup is a trophy that Everton must have fancied that they could win this season, but those dreams are over.
There was no upset at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea cruised into the fourth round with a 6-0 thumping of Wolves. Gary Cahill, Ryan Bertrand and Juan Mata gave Roberto Di Matteo’s side a convincing lead before half time at Stamford Bridge. And second half goals from Oriol Romeu, Fernando Torres and Victor Moses completed the rout.
Swansea staged a late comeback to win 3-2 and break Crawley hearts. Trailing 2-1 with 15 minutes remaining Danny Graham and Garry Monk scored to as the Premier League side edged out their League One opponents.
Southampton’s record signing Jay Rodgriguez scored a goal in both halves as Southampton won their second game of the season 2-0 against Sheffield Wednesday.
