Manchester City suffered a shock League Cup defeat at the hands of a reinvigorated Newcastle United, who reached the quarterfinals with a superb 2-0 away win.

The defeat last night left the holders City nursing the wounds of a bruising past eight days.

Newcastle’s 18-year-old winger Rolando Aarons struck in the sixth minute to hand the visitors an unlikely lead before Moussa Sissoko ended any hopes of a City fightback with a brilliant goal to gift underfire manager Alan Pardew a third win in 11 days.

“We are buzzing in the dressing room. It has given the club a massive lift. It's been a great week,” Aarons told Sky Sports.

The result completed a miserable week for City, who are now without a win in three games, after they lost to West Ham United on Saturday and threw away a two-goal lead to draw with CSKA Moscow in the Champions League last Tuesday.

Elsewhere, Graziano Pellè scored twice as in-form Southampton let slip a 2-0 lead before advancing to the last eight with a thrilling 3-2 victory against Stoke City.

Tottenham Hotspur eased through to the quarterfinals with a routine 2-0 win against Championship (second tier) Brighton & Hove Albion.
