Manchester United, Arsenal, Cardiff and Crystal Palace reached the quarter-finals on Tuesday. The Manchester City kept sweeping over the 5-2 mauling at Wolverhampton Wanderers in the League Cup after humiliating 6-1 to Manchester United to achieve a five-point lead in the Premier League. Man City, however, was a goal down at Molineux when he rallied with three goals in just four minutes before the break. Adam Johnson and Samir Nasri began recovery, and Edin Dzeko gave a doublet alternating with an own goal by goalkeeper Dorus de Vries. "The first 20 minutes were hesitant, but once we control the ball, passing and mobility, and had the second goal, was virtually decided," said Johnson. The Chelsea was revived by a goal from substitute Daniel Sturridge in the fourth minute of extra time to win 2-1 at Everton. Both teams finished with 10 men. Blackburn took longer to get the ticket because the French defender Gael Givet scored the decisive goal in the final minute of overtime to beat Newcastle 4-3 to the visitors who suffered their first defeat in the season.
