Premier League sides not competing in European competitions entered the competition in the second round, with the seven others set to join when the third round is played next week.

Tuesday’s game of the day featured one current and one recently departed PL side — Crystal Palace and Bournemouth, respectively — in a scoreless draw for 90 minutes. The ensuing penalty shootout required 12 rounds of spot kicks to decide a winner. Both goalkeepers failed to convert in the 11th round, but Asmir Begovic atoned for his mistake with the winning save in the 12th.
