West Brom and Watford were the two Premier League casualty in last night's EFL Cup. In an otherwise successful night for teams in the top flight, the pair were undone by two League One sides, Northampton beating West Brom on penalties and Gillingham beating Watford 2-1 after extra time.
There are four remaining round two games tonight, including Burnley's live clash at local rivals Accrington (19.45, SS1).

It was squeaky bum time for Brendan Rodgers' Celtic side in Israel last night, losing 2-0 on the night but coming out 5-4 winners on aggregate to progress to Thursday's Champions League group stage draw.

As the half time whistles blow up and down the country there doesn't look to be too many upsets on the cards. Chelsea and Liverpool are both in cruise control and long odds on to progress, whilst only Watford from the Premier League aren't winning their tie against lower league opposition, drawing 0-0 with League 1 Gillingham and best price 8/11 to win in 90 mins.

23 Aug 16 / 19:12
FOOTBALL - Game Set and Match
That's it at Old Trafford as the final whistle goes. Man United win 2-0 and in truth they played some nice stuff. Southampton had some chances but lacked any belief in front of goal. Six points from six for Jose.
19 Aug 16 / 21:51
FOOTBALL - Fizzling out
81st min - The atmosphere at Old Trafford is now akin to that of a library with the game all but won for the home team. Southampton far from disgraced but they are lacking some cutting edge to be honest. #Blunt
19 Aug 16 / 21:40
FOOTBALL - Mata OFF
75th min - Long misses another chance for Southampton, meanwhile Juan Mata comes off for Henrikh Mkhitaryan which now means I have to learn how to spell his name. Annoying
19 Aug 16 / 21:34
FOOTBALL - LVG Who?
I wonder what Louis Van Gaal is doing right now? He is probably watching the Hockey final to be fair on the other side. He wont want to watch his Man United team playing with the attacking intent they are showing at the moment.
19 Aug 16 / 21:30
FOOTBALL - Saints On the Ropes
United all over Southampton like a hot rash here. Chances for Martial in the box and it feels like a third goal is near. Charlie Austin on for Steven Davis for the away team.
19 Aug 16 / 21:26
FOOTBALL - PogChance
64th min - That was a great chance for the big man. He rose high and un-opposed from a corner but Pogba could only head it over the bar. Big Chance. United on top here.
19 Aug 16 / 21:23
FOOTBALL - Unbelievable Scenes
An hour gone at Old Trafford and in near unprecedented scenes we are yet to see Marouane Fellaini elbow a single player yet. It really has been a remarkable night for the Belgian so far.
19 Aug 16 / 21:18
FOOTBALL - Another for Zlatan?
Zlatan not really in the game in general but he has popped up with both goals tonight and bet365 make him 5/1 to be the next scorer in this one as he searches for his first hat-trick in England.
19 Aug 16 / 21:11
FOOTBALL - 2-0 UNITED!
51st Min - Zlatan makes it 2-0 to Man United from the penalty spot with ease after Clasie tripped Shaw in stupid fashion. A stonewall pen that one. Easy as for the Swede.
19 Aug 16 / 21:10
FOOTBALL - Action!
Great start to the 2nd half as Tadic has a goal ruled out at one end before Martial has a shot well saved at the other end. Nice flow to this half in the first five minutes or so.
19 Aug 16 / 21:09
FOOTBALL - 2nd Half Underway
Dont even think about switching over to the Ladies Hockey Final at the Olympics..... yes im looking at you! The 2nd half is underway at Old Trafford with not a hair out of place on either team.

19 Aug 16 / 20:53
FOOTBALL - FNF Review
So far Friday Night Football has been a solid affair although it should be said that it has been very similar to Super Sunday and Monday Night Football up to this point in that it is a game of football.
19 Aug 16 / 20:51
FOOTBALL - Half Time
Thats the end of the 1st half at Old Trafford. United go in 1-0 up and probably deserve it but it has hardly been a classic Friday Night so far. Time for Jeff Stelling to add some casual non tie wearing fun to proceedings during the interval.
19 Aug 16 / 20:47
FOOTBALL - Poor Defending
Just having another look at the United goal. Rooney had time to nip home and put his kids to bed before knocking that cross in for the Zlatan header. Shocking defending from the Saints.
19 Aug 16 / 20:44
FOOTBALL - Goal Pleases Tyler
Paddy Power quick to confirm what the rest of us were thinking.....
Zlatan gives United the lead, and NASA confirm that Martin Tyler's erection can be seen from space.— Paddy Power (@paddypower) August 19, 2016
19 Aug 16 / 20:42
FOOTBALL - Jose Pleased
That goal has pleased the Special One with Jose Mourinho now prowling along the touchline like he has just won an Olympic medal for Portugal.
19 Aug 16 / 20:41
FOOTBALL - Saints On The Drift
United go 1-0 up and the betting for the match has of course changed drastically now. United now as short as 1/6 with Coral for the 3 points. Brave punters can get 18/1 about an away win.
19 Aug 16 / 20:39
FOOTBALL - GOAL ZLATAN
36th Min - Out of nothing a cross comes from the right from Rooney and there is the man we pointed out earlier. Zlatan makes it two from two this season with a lovely header and United are 1-0 up. Jose liked that one.
19 Aug 16 / 20:37
FOOTBALL - Scuffed!
32nd Min - An early ball from Tadic puts Long in but he scuffs his shot and it trickles into the hands of De Gea. Perhaps the best chance of the night so far that one. #DaisyCutter
19 Aug 16 / 20:33
FOOTBALL - Acrobatic
29th min - Some nice play by United down their left ends up with a dink into the box and a flying overhead flick thing from Zlatan. Whatever it's called, it went wide. Better from the home team though.
19 Aug 16 / 20:30
FOOTBALL - Saints Chance
26th min - A quick turn and a shot from Shane Long inside the box just whistles past the near post of David De Gea. Saints very comfortable at the moment. Still 0-0.
19 Aug 16 / 20:26
FOOTBALL - Anyone fancy Zlatan?
Zlatan scored 11 goals against Claude Puel during his time in France. The big Swede is currently 11/8 to hit the back of the net this evening.
19 Aug 16 / 20:23
FOOTBALL - Saints Chance
Southampton go through the United defence like a hot knife through butter there. Redmond gets in but his cross is narrowly too far in front of tadic at the back post. Jose probably touching cloth there.
19 Aug 16 / 20:20
FOOTBALL - Romeu Injured
Bad news for Saints. Romeu hobbles off to be replaced by Jory Clasie in the 11th minute. Claude Puel looks like he has swallowed a wasp at the moment.
19 Aug 16 / 20:12
FOOTBALL - Cagey Start
A pretty quiet first few minutes at Old Trafford. Mourinho caught on camera scribbling down some notes. Our best guess is that he has just written 'Dear diary........ I Heart Zlatan'.
19 Aug 16 / 20:10
FOOTBAL - Fellaini Poll
Quick straw poll - Who will throw more elbows this weekend? Marouane Fellaini or Conor McGregor? The Belgian is 4/1 with Betfair to be shown any card tonight.
19 Aug 16 / 20:05
FOOTBALL - KICK OFF
We are underway at Old Trafford and at the very least that means we don't have to listen to Kammy shouting at us for the next 45 minutes. #CalmDownKammy
19 Aug 16 / 19:59
BETTING - United On The Drift
Not long until kick off and for those of you who fancy a tickle, Man United are out to a best price 8/15 to claim the three points. Saints are 13/2 for their 3rd successive league win at Old Trafford.
19 Aug 16 / 19:55
FOOTBALL - Casual Wear
So far, Friday Night Football has consisted of the girl from countdown, Jeff Stelling without a tie and Chris Kamara shouting at the camera. Pretty standard stuff.
