Manchester City, Everton and Stoke book places in Capital One Cup semifinals


Lower division clubs were dealt a dose of Premier League reality on Tuesday, with three fixtures in the Capital One Cup quarterfinals between Premier and Football League sides going the way of top-tier clubs. The results leave Manchester City, Everton and Stoke in the competition’s final four, with the semifinals’ last spot to be settled on Wednesday between Southampton and Liverpool.

Manchester City put in dominant performance at the Etihad Stadium against Hull City, building on the 1-0 lead they took into intermission with three second half goals. With a late consolation tally from Andrew Robertson, the Tigers were able to prevent a clean sheet, but two  goals from Kevin de Bruyne helped the Premier League leaders to a 4-1 victory.

Everton, seeking their first trophy since 1995, got first half goals from Gerard Deulofeu and Romelu Lukaku en route to a 2-0 win at Middlesbrough, while goals from Ibrahim Afellay and Phil Bardlsey helped Stoke City to a 2-0 victory over visiting Sheffield Wednesday.

The Capital One Cup’s two-leg semifinals will take place during the weeks of Jan. 4 and Jan. 25, with the final scheduled for Feb. 28.
