Saints beat Stoke in five-goal thriller

Southampton continued their impressive form with a win over 10-man Stoke City to reach the last eight of the League Cup for the first time in 10 years.
They led when Graziano Pelle curled in a stunning effort before Shane Long struck his first Southampton goal.
Steven N'Zonzi gave Stoke hope after the break with a shot from distance and Mame Biram Diouf headed them level.
But when Stoke's Peter Crouch was sent off, Pelle found space from the resulting free-kick to drill a winner.
Substitute Crouch had only been on the pitch for 15 minutes when he collected two yellow cards in quick succession, the second for a late challenge on Steven Davis.
