Capital One Cup

Sheffield Wednesday 3-0 Arsenal – League Cup 4th Round

Sheffield Wednesday stunned Premier League opponents Arsenal with a comfortable 3-0 victory at Hillsborough on Tuesday night.

Goals from Ross Wallace, Lucas Joao and Sam Hutchinson booked the Owls’ place in the League Cup quarter-finals for the first time since 2002 as they outclassed the 13-time league title winners on a memorable evening in the steel city.

Despite making nine changes, Arsene Wenger’s side still included the likes of Champions League winning goalkeeper Petr Cech and World Cup winner Per Mertesacker, as well as a host of other recognisable names. But the Gunners proved no match for their Championship opposition, creating only one chance of note all evening, and Wednesday ran out winners in a contest that will live long in their memory.

Sheffield Wednesday comfortably defeated lower league opponents Mansfield Town 4-1 at Hillsborough to book their place in the second round of the Capital One Cup.

Headed goals from Portugese duo Lucas Joao and Jose Semedo put the hosts in a dominating position inside 20 minutes.

A late first half rally rewarded the Stags with a goal of their own from Ryan Tafazolli, but the outcome rarely looked in doubt and the Owls completed a comfortable evening with second half goals from Kieran Lee and debutant Modou Sougou.
