Football fans enjoyed a spot of pre-match entertainment last night – courtesy of a furry pitch invader.

It worked for the most part as four of the five Premier League v Championship ties went in favour of the top-flight side, while a much-changed Manchester United beat an even-more-rotated Swansea 2-0 in the night's other game. Arsene Wenger handed a first-team debut to goalkeeper Matt Macey and gave forgotten man Mathieu Debuchy a second cup start in as many weeks as not one of Sunday's Premier League line-up from the 5-2 win at Everton played from the start in their fourth-round victory over Norwich.

Lingard's delightful double sends holders United through to Carabao Cup last eight with easy win at Swansea
JOE BERNSTEIN AT THE LIBERTY STADIUM: Eight of the Manchester United players who featured in their humiliating defeat at Huddersfield on Saturday were 'invited' by Jose Mourinho to try their luck again on Tuesday night in a far from glamorous Carabao Cup tie in rainy south Wales. Instead of acting as a punishment however, it proved a good way to exorcise the demons, not least for Jesse Lingard who had endured the full 90 minutes at the John Smith's Stadium but bounced back in style to record the first double of his Manchester United career. The League Cup holders are therefore into this season's quarter-finals and Mourinho could surpass Brian Clough and Sir Alex Ferguson later this season by lifting the competition for a record fifth time.
Palace humiliated by Bristol City: Hodgson's second string ship FOUR in miserable defeat at Championship side

Adam has been taught not to hold onto what is not his, so he sent the money to Jarvis and suggested that manager David Wagner give it to Mooy as a reward.

Ronaldo and Messi named in World XI for 11TH time... but there have only been two Premier League stars in the last six years as the same old faces dominate

The star-studded line-up, voted for by footballers all over the globe, was unveiled at FIFA's 'The Best' awards in London on Monday night and - surprise, surprise - there wasn't an English top-flight player in sight. That's become the norm over recent seasons, with the division conspicuous by its absence from all bar one of the past six editions while Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and La Liga have dominated.
