Arsenal have crushed out of the League Cup after suffering a 3-0 away to minnows Sheffield Wednesday in the fourth round .

Wenger’s idea of fielding a second string side backfired as Sheffield  notched two first half goals before sealing the victory with a third goal, knocking the Gunners out of the competition to advance to the next round.

Arsenal also lost English pair Theo Walcot and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain forced out of the pitch with respective injuries.

At the Britannia Stadium 10-man Stoke City stretched further Chelsea’s  horror start to the season with a 5-4 post-match-penalties defeat following a one all draw in regulations.

After a goalless draw in the first half, Jonathan Walters broke the deadlock minutes into the second half, before Loic Remy came off the bench to grab an equalizer for Chelsea in stoppage time.

Meanwhile, Everton survived a nervy after beating Norwich 4-3 in spot-kicks at Goodison Park to advance to quarters, while Championship  side Hull City overcame Premier League high-fliers Leicester City 5-4
on shootouts.
