Bradley Dack struck in extra time as Gillingham came from behind to stun Premier League Watford 2-1 and reach the third round of the EFL Cup.

Walter Mazzarri looked set to enjoy his first win as Hornets boss when Odion Ighalo came off the bench to fire them ahead before Dack missed a penalty.

But Mark Byrne struck eight minutes from the end of normal time to level the scores before Dack's heroics as Gillingham beat top-flight opposition for the first time since dumping Portsmouth out of this competition at the same stage in 2005/06.

Chelsea survived a tense second-half to secure passage into the third round of the EFL Cup with a 3-2 victory over Bristol Rovers at Stamford Bridge.

A strong Blues line-up numbering five first-team regulars including Pedro and Nemanja Matic laboured against their League One opponents despite twice claiming two-goal leads as Michy Batshuayi scored either side of Victor Moses' goal.

Peter Hartley and Ellis Harrison, who fired the only goal of the second-half, gave Rovers hope of a famous upset against the Premier League giants and on more than one occasion they threatened an equaliser.

Bravo lands ahead of agreeing Man City move

Barcelona goalkeeper Claudio Bravo has landed in England ahead of completing his move to Manchester City.

The Chile international is set to undergo a medical in the coming days, ahead of signing his contract.

Manager Pep Guardiola has spent most of the summer searching for a new goalkeeper after deeming Joe Hart as being unsuitable for this style of play.

When asked about the transfer on Tuesday, Guardiola said: "I cannot deny what everybody knows. Barcelona were the first ones who announced contact with Manchester City but, sorry, the deal is not complete. After that I will be open to answer questions but in this moment he is not our player."
