Spurs come back from a goal down to win 3-1 against the Championship leaders. Both teams make comprehensive changes to their starting line-ups with Tottenham starting with a completely different eleven from the home defeat by W.B.A. at the weekend. Debutant Jorge Grant puts the visitors ahead on the hour mark but the Londoners prevail with strikes from Ryan Mason, Roberto Soldado and Harry Kane. Spurs will meet Brighton at home in the next round. Forest fans wear green sweatshirts in tribute to their former manager Brian Clough on the tenth anniversary of his death.
Will Grigg scores in the 25th and 63rd minutes and Benik Afobe in the 70th and 84th as they beat 20 times premier league champions in the league cup competition. It is the first time United have conceded 4 in a league cup against a lower league opposition. Van Gaal:
It’s a matter of making errors at the wrong moments. When you see the goals against us, I believe it was big errors in building up situations that you cannot make these errors. Four at once, then it’s 0-2, then it’s very difficult to come back in the game.
