Watford and West Bromwich Albion were the biggest losers on Tuesday night as the English Football Cup staged four games on Tuesday night.
It was fourth-tier side Newport who eliminated favourites, Watford, with a 3-1 win at Rodney Parade. It was the first time Watford conceded three times to fourth-tier opposition in an EFL Cup game for the first time since 1973.
The homes side had taken the lead through Tristan Abrahams in the 18th minute from a penalty spot before doubling that advantage before the break when Joss Labadie fired a beauty into the top corner.
Adalberto Peñaranda pulled one back for Watford from the spot but on 65 minutes, County made sure of the win when Pádraig Amond capitalized on a slack defensive pass to calmly find the net.
Another shocker came in the game against West Brom where the Premier League side went down to Brentford on post-match penalties after a 2-2 draw in regular time.
Three of those goals came from the spot, with two for Hal Robson-Kanu and one for the Bees’ Marcus Forss but it was the other which was most special, Emiliano Marcondes blasting a beautiful overhead kick in off the crossbar.
There were wins for West Ham United and Manchester United with the former emerging 5-1 winners over Hull City with the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer side coming out 3-0 winners over Luton Town.
The game between Tottenham Hotspur and Leyton Orient was postponed at the 11th hour due to several COVID-19 infections within the home side. A decision is yet to be made on a potential new date or whether Tottenham will advance.
