Premier League Liverpool squandered a two-goal lead before seeing off third tier Notts County 4-2 in extra-time in the second round of the League Cup at Anfield on Tuesday

Raheem Sterling celebrated his senior England call-up by opening the scoring for Liverpool in the fourth minute before Daniel Sturridge scored his third goal in as many games to make it 2-0 before half-time.

However, County responded through a Yoann Arquin header before substitute Adam Coombes struck an equaliser with six minutes of normal time remaining.

Liverpool though kept their cool in extra-time and secured a 4-2 win with a second goal from Sturridge and a fourth in all from Jordan Henderson.

But top-flight new boys Crystal Palace lost 2-1 at Bristol City of third tier League One.
