There was plenty of Capital One Cup excitement away from White Hart Lane for Tottenham's loanees this week as Ryan Fredericks took part in a cup record penalty shootout for Middlesbrough at Liverpool.
The 21-year-old right back was part of a resolute 'Boro defence that battled hard as Liverpool took the lead twice before being pegged back by a late Patrick Bamford spot-kick. With the scores level at the end of extra-time, a penalty shootout was called for but no-one could forsee the drama that was about to unfold.
With both sides missing once in the first five penalties, it went to sudden death and Fredericks stepped up for his side's eighth spot-kick and coverted despite a touch from 'keeper Simon Mignolet. On the contest went until Albert Adomah missed his second effort and handed Liverpool the win 14-13.
Elsewhere, Tom Carroll played 70 minutes as Swansea overcame Premier League rivals Everton 3-0.
On the continent, Tomis Gomelt stayed on the bench as Bari lost 1-0 at Vicenza in Serie B, while Lewis Holtby played the full 90 as Hamburg lost by a single goal at Borussia Monchengladbach in Germany's Bundesliga.
