Moise Kean's Everton career just cannot get going. The Italy striker made his first start of the season in an English League Cup second-round match at second-tier Huddersfield on Tuesday and was sent off after getting involved in a scuffle in the middle of the field in the 59th minute.

Kean, who had a goal disallowed in the first half, didn't protest against the decision as he walked straight off the field and down the tunnel.

Everton defied the loss of Kean by scoring a 79th-minute winner through Andros Townsend for a 2-1 victory to advance along with six other Premier League teams that played lower-league opposition.


United States striker Josh Sargent scored his first goals for Norwich since joining from German club Werder Bremen, with his double helping his new team to a 6-0 win over second-tier Bournemouth.

Aston Villa won by the same score at fourth-tier Barrow, with 19-year-old striker Cameron Archer marking his first start for the club with a hat trick.

Wolverhampton and Brighton won 4-0 and 2-0, respectively, against second-tier teams Nottingham Forest and Cardiff, while Jack Harrison scored two late goals in Leeds' 3-0 victory over third-tier Crewe. Brentford beat fourth-division leader Forest Green Rovers 3-1.

Patrick Vieira is still without a victory as Crystal Palace manager after his team conceded an 86th-minute goal to lose at Watford. Ashley Fletcher netted the winner on his debut.

Vieira replaced Roy Hodgson in the offseason for his first senior managerial role in English football but Palace has opened the Premier League with a 3-0 loss at Chelsea and a 0-0 draw with Brentford.


Tennis balls were thrown onto the field by Oldham fans during the fourth-tier team's match against Accrington Stanley, in protest against the club's ownership.

Play was briefly halted, with Oldham's players throwing the balls back into the stand behind one of the goals. They later won a penalty shootout after a 0-0 draw.

Oldham is in last place in League Two, the lowest of England's four professional divisions.
