Four top-flight sides through to Carling Cup last eight

Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham are all through to the quarter-finals after winning their last-16 ties last night.

Chelsea hammered Aston Villa 4-0 at Stamford Bridge, with Frank Lampard, Andriy Shevchenko, Michael Essien and Didier Drogba all on the scoresheet.

Liverpool, meanwhile, beat Birmingham City 1-0 thanks to a Danie Agger goal, but midfielder Mohamed Sissoko could be facing a lengthy absence after suffering a suspected dislocated shoulder in the first half.

Elsewhere, an 83rd-minute header from Emmanuel Adebayor saw Arsenal beat 10-man Everton 1-0 at Goodison Park, while Spurs came from 1-0 down to beat League One side Port Vale 3-1.
