Chelsea new boy Kai Havertz hit a hat-trick on a night when the Premier League big guns inflicted Carabao Cup third-round misery on their EFL opponents.
Havertz spearheaded Chelsea’s 6-0 hammering of Barnsley with his first goals for the Blues since joining from Bayer Leverkusen earlier this month.
Joelinton’s brace helped Newcastle to a 7-0 demolition of 10-man Morecambe, who had Toumani Diagouraga sent off after 33 minutes.
Everton’s impressive start to the season continued with a 5-2 win at League One side Fleetwood.
Arsenal set up a potential fourth-round clash with Liverpool by beating Leicester 2-0 at the King Power Stadium.
Brighton booked a fourth-round meeting with Manchester United next week by easing past Preston 2-0 at Deepdale.
Second-half goals from Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Alexis Mac Allister were enough for the Seagulls to advance and set up a second home meeting with United in the space of a few days with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side due at the Amex Stadium on Saturday.
Fulham made light of Aleksandar Mitrovic’s absence in a 2-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday at Craven Cottage.
Aboubakar Kamara turned home Anthony Knockaert’s ninth-minute pass for the opener before Bobby Decordova-Reid scored for the second successive match after 32 minutes.
Josh Brownhill’s first Burnley goal since his January move from Bristol City helped the Clarets to a 2-0 win at Millwall.
Brownhill opened the scoring with a 30-yard screamer on the stroke of half-time, and Matej Vydra’s late effort sealed a home tie with Manchester City or Bournemouth at Turf Moor next week.
Ireland international Troy Parrott’s debut for Millwall lasted only 45 minutes as he went off injured at half-time.
Stoke saw off Gillingham 1-0 with Tyrese Campbell’s first goal of the new season – a clinical finish after 37 minutes – enough to secure their progress to the last 16.
