Leyton Orient to face Tottenham in Carabao Cup, Grealish celebrates new contract while Watkins scores on Aston Villa debut, Fraser gets off to fast start with Newcastle

A mouth-watering London derby awaits us in the Carabao Cup third round as Leyton Orient have set up a tie with Tottenham.

The League Two side amazingly came back from 2-0 down to beat League One Plymouth 3-2, with Danny Johnson getting a dramatic stoppage-time winner.

The result means Spurs star Harry Kane could feature against the club he agreed to be a shirt sponsor for this season.

It’s a tie that Orient fans will relish while Spurs supporters will be nervous having exited the competition to League Two Colchester last season.

Elsewhere on Tuesday night, Jack Grealish celebrated his new Aston Villa contract as his stunning volley helped them to a 3-1 victory at Burton Albion.

The Villans did find themselves a goal down but a debut strike from Ollie Watkins levelled the scores. Grealish put Dean Smith’s side in front before Keinan Davis added a third late on.

There was also a debut strike for Ryan Fraser, who scored the only goal of the game as Newcastle got the better of Blackburn.

Wonder if this will change Simon Jordan’s views of the former Bournemouth player?

Is Fraser slowly silencing the naysayers?

Fraser’s former club also progressed as they beat Crystal Palace on penalties – every outfield player scoring in the shootout with the Cherries winning 11-10.

Bournemouth will face reigning champions Manchester City in the next round. This means Nathan Ake, who left the south coast club in a £41million deal, could face his former club.

Meanwhile, Lincoln thrashed Bradford 5-0 to set up a tie at home to eight-time winners Liverpool. Luton will play Manchester United at home after winning 1-0 at Reading.

And props must go to Watford goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann as he saved all three of Oxford United’s penalties to put the Hornets through. This came after Ken Sema’s late goal cancelled out Oxford’s first-half opener.

There was some respite for West Ham boss David Moyes as his side breezed past Charlton, winning 3-0 at the London Stadium.
