United beat Northampton to end losing streak

MANCHESTER -- Get ready for Jose Mourinho vs. Pep Guardiola, part II. Manchester United ended a run of three losses by capitalizing on two goalkeeper mistakes to beat third-tier Northampton 3-1 in the third round of the League Cup.

The reward wasn't kind for United: A match against Manchester City in the last 16 next monthes and a renewal of the Mourinho-Guardiola rivalry that has been transferred from Spain to the north of England this season.

While Guardiola's City was winning its ninth successive game of the season by beating Swansea 2-1 away, United labored again and needed a helping hand from Northampton's error-prone goalkeeper and its strong bench to end the first blip of Mourinho's tenure.

Northampton goalkeeper Adam Smith was penalized for picking up a back pass and United scored from the resulting free kick, Michael Carrick lashing home a shot after Wayne Rooney's attempt was blocked.

United was pegged back by a penalty and then took the lead through Ander Herrera in the 68th minute before Smith dallied over a clearance and was dispossessed by substitute Marcus Rashford, who scored into an empty net.

West Ham 1, Accrington 0

Struggling West Ham required a free kick by Dimitri Payet six minutes into injury time to overcome the lowest-ranked team left in the competition.

The France midfielder curled his shot over the wall and into the net, earning his team a home match against London rival Chelsea in the Olympic Stadium.

In Other Action

Elsewhere in the comp, Hull beat Stoke 2-1 thanks to Markus Henriksen's injury-time winner, while Southampton defeated Crystal Palace 2-0.

Sunderland came from behind to defeat Queens Park Rangers 2-1, Bristol City took a 2-1 victory at Fulham, and Tottenham thrashed Gillingham 5-0.
