Full-time: Lincoln City 2-7 Liverpool

It turns out the Premier League champions are better than an average League One team, who knew? Fair play to Liverpool they were at it from the start and did not give Lincoln much of a sniff.

Tottenham won! David Hytner wrote about it.

9.23pm BST21:23

I am mainly pleased that City scored as now I hopefully won’t have to Google whether the game goes straight to penalties or if they have extra-time.

9.20pm BST21:20

GOAL! Manchester City 2-1 Bournemouth (Foden)

I am running around with my shirt above my head as Foden taps home after Mahrez’s shot bounced off the post.

That’s quite funny ...

Mourinho reveals that the goal was 5cm too small and had to be replaced! Says the #THFC keepers spotted it instantly.

9.15pm BST21:15

74 mins: Liverpool are now just knocking the ball around slowly as it’s not worth doing much else.

9.13pm BST21:13

Sterling is on for City, too, now!

9.11pm BST21:11

70 mins: Fabinho hits a low free-kick from just outside the area but it goes just side.

How are things going for Manchester City? They have needed to bring on Kevin de Bruyne to sort stuff out.

9.06pm BST21:06

GOAL! Lincoln City 1-6 Liverpool (Grujic, 65)

And another! Grujic picks up a loose ball on the edge of the area, composes himself and drills it into the corner.

56 mins: Elliott claims he was pulled back in the box by Bradley and demands a penalty but the referee takes pity on Lincoln.

54 mins: Jota is stripped and raring to go. Good luck to everyone in the Lincoln defence.

8.52pm BST20:52

Full-time! Bristol City 0-3 Aston Villa

A fine performance from Villa, which should give the team plenty of confidence, especially Traore who scored a fine goal on debut.

8.51pm BST20:51

50 mins: Lincoln have a couple of chances to score but Liverpool hold firm. The ball is then quickly down the pitch to Origi, who cuts in from the left and hits a vicious strike which Palmer palms away.

Lincoln are still trying to play out from the back, which is either brave or stupid. It’s a fine line.
