Last update on. From the section League Cup
Lukas Rupp also added Norwich's third just 12 minutes before the half-time break

Premier League Norwich City defeated Championship side Bournemouth in order to reach the third round Carabao Cup.

The Canaries led 3-0 before half-time thanks to goals from debutant Christos Tezolis, Kenny McLean, and Lukas Rupp.

Josh Sargent added another on his full debut, before Tzolis doubled the personal tally.

Sargent, a 21-year-old US international, added his second and sixth to Norwich's total with 15 minutes left.

Daniel Farke, Canaries manager, made 10 changes to the team that was beaten hard at Manchester City on Saturday. He gave Brandon Williams and Manchester United loanee Brandon Williams first appearances. Sargent, former Werder Bremen forward, also got a full debut.

Tzolis, a 19-year-old Greek winger, was a threat all through, opening the scoring via a heavy tackle on Zeno Ibsen Rosi, Cherries defender.

Williams, a full-back, completed his Old Trafford loan move on Monday. He was also involved in Norwich's second. Dowell and Kieran Dowell worked well together in the buildup to McLean’s long-range drive in the top right corner.

After Rupp's composed pass from Tzolis gave the Canaries more breathing room, Sargent scored his first goal after Bournemouth goalkeeper Orjan Nyld had blocked McLean's goalbound attempt into the forward's path.

The hosts added another five when Sargent capitalized on Nyland’s errant pass to tee off Tzolis. He then returned the favor for the American to complete his scoring.

Bournemouth defeated Norwich to reach the 2018-19 quarterfinals. However, they managed just one goal in the 90-minute period as debutant Brennan Camp sent a tame header straight at goalkeeper Angus Gunn.
