Shocks galore in 3rd round

24th September 2015
By Michael Downham

The third round of the Capital One cup was awash with shock results which saw many big names crash out of the cup, including the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and holders Chelsea.

The biggest shock of the third round came at the Emirates. Conor Washington and Tariqe Fosu found the net as League One Peterborough beat FA cup holders Arsenal by 2 goals to 0. What was more surprising was that the result was deserved against a vastly experienced Arsenal side, who named a virtually full strength side including both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.

Elsewhere, Championship sides Wolves and Cardiff both produced shock 1-0 wins away from home. Idress Saaidi was the match winner as Cardiff dumped out holders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and Adam Le Fondre found the net as Wolves beat Liverpool at Anfield. Millwall also caused an upset, beating West Ham in a London derby.

The scores for the round were:

Blues rocked by Naismith injury

27th September 2015 by Andy Lewis,,10278~5764302,00.gif,,10278~5764303,00.gif,,10278~5764305,00.gif,,10278~5764301,00.gif

Everton have been hit with another injury blow following their visit to Chelsea, after it was revealed that Steven Naismith faces a month out with a hamstring strain.

The Scottish attacking midfielder picked up the injury in the 38th minute of our 1-0 win against Chelsea and walked off the pitch holding his hamstring at half time, being replaced by Arouna Kone after the break. The injury came about when Naismith pulled up chasing after a ball with Chelsea defender Gary Cahill. After the match Everton boss Roberto Martinez was quoted as 'fearful' and he was right to be after a scan revealed the extent of the Scot's injury.

Speaking to, Martinez said:

"I spoke to Steven after the match and he said he was fine but I was worried and I was right to be. Steven went for a scan today at Finch Farm and it's been confirmed that he'll be out for about a month or two with a hamstring strain. Obviously it's a big blow for us as Steven is a great player but we have players who can come in and replace him. We should be ok. We may look into recalling Conor McAleny as a precaution."

Manager of the month award for Martinez

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has been rewarded for his sides current good form by winning the Manager of the Month award for September.

Roberto Martinez has guided his side to three wins out of three this month in the Premier League, seeing the Toffees storm to the Premier League summit. The toffees scored six goals and conceded three in a month which saw wins away at Aston Villa and Chelsea and at home to Arsenal.

"It is great to receive the award," said Martinez.

"But the praise has to go to the players, they have performed fantastically well for me in the Premier League and Capital One Cup. We are trying to compete on multiple fronts and the start to the season has been nothing short of incredible. Of course, we are trying to maintain our form and we have a tough match against West Ham on Sunday that we will be hoping to win. We are taking nothing for granted and we know that the hard work must continue."

Baines on road to recovery

20th October 2015 by Andy Lewis,,10278~5764302,00.gif,,10278~5764303,00.gif,,10278~5764305,00.gif,,10278~5764301,00.gif caught up with England international left back Leighton Baines as he continues his recovery from a broken ankle.

Baines, 30, has been out since early in pre-season after fracturing his ankle in a training match in a challenge with Scotland international Steven Naismith. According to Leighton, he is nearing a first team comeback and the news will surely delight the majority of Evertonians.

Speaking to, Baines said:

"I'm not far away now. The doctors have said that I should be fully fit in about a month's time which is absolutely fantastic news. I've already begun some light training and I can finally kick a ball again. Obviously I know how important it is to take it easy and I won't be coming back until I'm ready."

Baines also described how difficult watching the team has been for him.

"It's been horrible watching from the sidelines. I know that's going to sound crazy with our current form but from a selfish point of view, it feels like I'm not contributing. Obviously I'm delighted for the lads as they are playing well and winning games but I really want to be a part of that. It's going to be hard for me to displace Bryan (Oviedo) in the team."
