Manchester United scrapped through by the skin of their teeth on Wednesday after a penalty shootout against Rochdale at Old Trafford.

Mason Greenwood gave the Red Devils a 69th-minute lead, but 16-year-old Luke Matheson forced penalties with an equaliser with 14 minutes to go.

United were perfect from the spot, and they won the shootout 5-3 after Sergio Romero saved Jimmy Keohane's effort.

Chelsea are next in line for United after the Blues smashed seven past Grimsby at Stamford Bridge.

Michy Batshuayi scored a brace in the 7-1 victory, and Callum Hudson-Odoi netted in the 89th minute after his return from injury.

Liverpool cruised through 2-0 at Milton Keynes Dons, with the hosts unable to get the ball of Jurgen Klopp's young selection.

Ki-Jana Hoever, who is just 17, scored the second for Liverpool in the second half after James Milner broke the deadlock shortly before half-time.

There was a shock for West Ham United on the road, with the Hammers knocked out 4-0 by League One Oxford United.

The victory allows Oxford to face Sunderland in the next round after a famous win at the Kassam Stadium.
