A drab encounter that finished 0-0 after 90 minutes at Hull sprang to life in extra time as Newcastle took the lead when Mohamed Diame prodded home in the 98th against his former club.

The advantage lasted just a minute, however, with Robert Snodgrass equalising for Hull, which played with 10 men in extra time after striker Dieumerci Mbokani was sent off in the 89th minute.

Hull keeper Eldin Jakupovic was the shootout hero, saving from Jonjo Shelvey and Yoan Gouffran, while their Newcastle teammate Dwight Gayle hit the crossbar. Arsenal hosts Southampton and Manchester United welcomes West Ham United in the two remaining ties on Wednesday.
