Fourth-tier Accrington pulled off the biggest shock of the night on Wednesday, beating Burnley 1-0 thanks to a goal late in extra time by Matty Pearson.

Second-tier Fulham came from a goal down to beat Middlesbrough 2-1, with Lasse Vigen Christensen getting the west London team's winner in extra time.

Sunderland needed a late goal from on-loan Manchester United midfielder Adnan Januzaj to beat third-tier Shrewsbury 1-0, while Bournemouth settled for a 2-1 win at fourth-tier Morecambe.

Januzaj fired a rising shot into top corner in the 83rd minute to avoid any potential upset for a Sunderland side that has lost both its opening Premier League games under new manager David Moyes.

Also, titleholder Manchester City must travel to Swansea in an all-Premier League game, Arsenal will play Nottingham Forest away, Liverpool goes to Derby, and Tottenham was drawn at home to third-tier Gillingham, which beat Watford on Tuesday in the other shock of the second round.
