Aston Villa have been knocked out of the Capital One Cup after being beaten away by Southampton in Kevin Macdonald's opening game as caretaker manager.

After a goalless first half, Southampton broke the deadlock with a goal from Maya Yoshida, before Graziano Pelle doubled their lead.

A penalty in extra time from Scott Sinclair wasn't enough to salvage a win as Villa's turbulent season continues.
