North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham and Chelsea have been eliminated from the Carabao Cup in the third round.
Spurs were given a shocker by Premier League rivals Nottingham Forest who beat them 2-0 at Tottenham Hotspur stadium. Things stood 0-0 at the break but whatever half-time talk Forest had seemed to work as two goals in seven minutes from Renan Lodi and Jesse Lingard put them in control.

Premier League leaders Arsenal suffered a shock loss at the Emirates as Brighton pulled off a 3-1 comeback.
The opening moments were all Brighton but a moment of brilliance between Reiss Nelson and Eddie Nketiah saw a curler hit the back of the net for the hosts against the run of play. Minutes later, however, that would all be undone as goalkeeper Karl Hein conceded a penalty on his debut and Danny Welbeck made things 1-1.
Coming out after the break things would then get even worse for Hein and company as Kaoru Mitoma turned the game in favor of Brighton with a stunning curler only for Tariq Lamptey to add a third sending Arsenal out.
Goals from Mahrez and Alvarez ensured that Manchester City sailed to the next round of the competition at the expense of Chelsea FC.
On Thursday, Manchester United host Aston Villa at Old Trafford.
