United win through Lingard's brace in Mourinho landmark

Jesse Lingard scored twice as League Cup holders Manchester United saw off Premier League rivals Swansea 2-0 in south Wales as Jose Mourinho´s men bounced back from a shock league defeat by Huddersfield.

This result gave Mourinho a win in his 400th game in English football and he told Sky Sports: "Of course I still get the same thrill from it, but 2004 was a long time ago."

"I am more mature and have a different way to react to things," the Portuguese manager added. "I´m the same. I want to win and I hate losing."

Bournemouth, fresh from just their second Premier League win of the season last weekend, enjoyed a 3-1 victory at home to Middlesbrough while Leicester City, without a manager since sacking Craig Shakespeare, came from a goal down to beat Leeds United, like Boro a Championship club, by the same scoreline.

Wednesday´s ties see Chelsea face Everton in the Toffees´ first match since Ronald Koeman was sacked as their manager while high-flying Tottenham Hotspur face West Ham in an all-London clash.
