Manchester United began their League Cup defense with a 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Old Trafford. Casemiro scored a goal and assisted another in the match. Meanwhile, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Luton Town, both Premier League teams, were eliminated by lower-division opponents. Wolves lost 3-2 to Ipswich Town, while Luton was defeated 1-0 by Exeter City. Exeter managed to hold on with 10 men after Demetri Mitchell was sent off. Burnley, led by Vincent Kompany, secured a 4-0 win against Salford City. Palace suffered an early setback when goalkeeper Dean Henderson, who was signed from United, had to be substituted due to injury. Sam Johnstone replaced him but conceded a goal shortly after. Casemiro continued his impressive performance by scoring the second goal, and Anthony Martial added a third. The two teams will face each other again in the league on Saturday. Sofyan Amrabat, United’s loan signing from Fiorentina, made his first start at left back. Ipswich Town secured a 2-1 victory over Wolves, with Jack Taylor scoring the winning goal. Middlesbrough won 2-0 against Bradford City, and Mansfield Town beat Peterborough United 3-1 on penalties. Sutton United lost 2-1 to Port Vale. The draw for the fourth round will take place after Wednesday’s matches, with several Premier League clubs in action. Newcastle United, last year’s losing finalists, will host Manchester City.
