Manchester City took a new step in defending its title in the English Professional League Cup by winning 3-0 at Burnley today, Wednesday, in the final price of the tournament, which today also saw Manchester United win the same result over Brighton, and Newcastle against Newport County on penalties .
Manchester City won their way to the quarter-finals of the championship thanks to the hat-trick by Raheem Sterling in the 35th and 49th minutes and Ferran Torres in the 65th minute.
While Manchester United scored a hat-trick against Brighton, Scott McTominay, Juan Mata and Paul Pogba scored in the 44th, 73rd and 80th minutes of the match.
Newcastle escaped the ambush of its host Newport County and qualified for the quarter-finals of the tournament by beating Newport 5-4 on penalties after the two teams drew 1-1 in the final price.
Newcastle qualified hard and through a penalty shootout after he was a few minutes away from the tournament.
Newport, who plays in the third division, advanced with a very early goal by Tristan Abraham in the fifth minute, and Newcastle’s response was delayed until the 87th minute by Jonjo Shelvey, so the two teams ruled the penalty shootout that decided the match and qualified for Newcastle.
