Carabao Cup Roundup: Everton, West Brom stroll to easy wins; Southampton, Leeds stunned at home

It was a victorious night for some of the Premier League sides in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night, even though there were a couple of surprises. 

Everton continued with their encouraging start to Carlo Ancelotti's first full season in charge by breezing past Salford in a 3-0 win. 

It was a changed side from the team that saw off Tottenham 1-0 last weekend in the Premier League, with 10 players given their first starts this season. 

Gylfi Sigurdsson scored on either side of a Moise Keane brace in a hugely dominant performance at the Goodison Park to make it two out of two in the new season. 

The opener came after just eight minutes as the striker found the back of the net from a Sigurdson ball before the Icelandic inked his name in the scorers' list in the 74th minute. 

Keane then completed his brace from the spot on the 87th minute to set a third-round date with Fleetwood Town next Wednesday.

West Brom were also 3-0 winners as well at home to Harrogate, with Rekeem Harper and Hal Robson-Kanu scoring wonderful goals. 

Callum Robinson scored the other goal for the new Premier League boys, who lost 3-0 to Leicester in their opening match. 

In other matches of the night, Leeds and Southampton were knocked out by 'minnows' Hull City and Brentford respectively. 

Leeds were held to a 1-1 draw in normal time before the visitors won on penalties. The Saints on the other hand suffered a humiliating 2-0 home defeat. 

Wednesday night results.
