They lost 6-5 in a shootout at home to League Two strugglers Gillingham following a 1-all draw.

Everton are also out after they were thrashed 4-1 by Bournemouth at the Vitality.

Manager Frank Lampard believes he was right to make eleven changes to his team.

Their opponents made nine alterations to their side, with one more round of Premier League games to go before the World Cup break.

Lampard says, as much as he wanted to get to the last-16 in the cup, it was a worthwhile exercise.

Jamie Vardy scored twice as Leicester ran out 3-nil winners at home to Newport.

MK Dons beat Morecambe 2-nil, Burnley were 3-1 winners over Crawley Town and Charlton overcame Stevenage 5-4 on penalties after a 1-all draw.
