London:

Division One leader West Bromwich knocked Manchester United out of the League Cup 2-0 and now has to beat Arsenal to reach the semifinal. On a night of upsets, a last minute penalty by Bolton's Youri Djorkaeff ended Liverpool's reign as champion as Wanderers scored a 3-2 victory at Anfield. A second half goal by Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink made sure that Premier League leader Chelsea didn't join the upset victims as Claudio Ranieri's star-studded Blues gained a 1-0 victory at division one Reading. In other fifth round games, Aston Villa overpowered division one Crystal Palace 3-0 and Tottenham scored a 3-1 victory over Manchester City. Middlesbrough edged Everton 5-4 on penalties after a 0-0 extra time tie. Swiss defender Bernd Haas hit the first after seven minutes and Scott Dobie added the second with his first touch as a substitute as the Baggies, relegated from the Premier League last season, gained its first victory over the Reds in 19 seasons and reached the quarterfinal for the first time in 22. West Brom also missed a first half penalty. Minutes after one of its biggest results of recent years, Gary Megson's West Brom discovered it again had a lucrative home draw in the quarterfinal Dec. 15. But it faces an Arsenal team that on Tuesday thrashed Wolves 5-1 fielding a team of youngster rather than its world-class stars. The other quarterfinals are Bolton vs. Southampton, Aston Villa vs Chelsea and Tottenham vs Middlesbrough. (AP)
