Bristol City, Bournemouth and Leicester City all reached the fifth round of the Carabao Cup after beating Crystal Palace, Middlesbrough and Leeds respectively.

Roy Hodgson's struggles at Crystal Palace continued when they lost 4-1 away to Bristol City following a 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United, despite fielding an almost full-strength line-up.

Bakary Sako opened the scoring for Palace but Bristol City equalised through Matty Taylor and didn't look back. Milan Djuric added to Taylor's goal, and cemented victory in the second half with goals from Joe Bryan and Callum O'Dowda.

Leicester caretaker Michael Appleton enjoyed his second consecutive victory with a 3-1 win at the King Power Stadium over Leeds United, with Kelechi Iheanacho scoring an excellent goal for his new club, his first following his summer move. Islam Slimani and Riyad Mahrez added two more, with Pablo Hernandez scoring for Leeds.

Bournemouth won by the same margin to reach the fifth round of the tournament when they defeated Middlesbrough on the south coast. Callum Wilson scored from the spot on his first game for Bournemouth since injuring his knee ligament in January. Jack Simpson opened the scoring to mark his Bournemouth debut, and Benik Afobe contributed a late third. 'Boro's goal came from Marcus Tavernier.
