Five matches took place in the League Cup this evening, with many Women's Super League teams in action.

20 goals were scored with some stunning performances, here's a round-up of all the action.

Chelsea made a statement with a thumping 5-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur, but it wasn't as easy as the score-line made out.

At half-time the two London clubs were locked at 0-0 and it wasn't until the 49th minute the deadlock was broken as Drew Spence scored for The Blues. 

Emma Hayes's side then went for the kill with four more goals to break Spurs hearts. Erin Cuthbert, Bethany England (twice) and Deanna Cooper all added their names to the score sheet to claim a convincing win.

Spurs' only consolation score came from Rosella Ayane in the 78th minute, leaving Tottenham third in their Conti Cup group while Chelsea remain in top spot.

Elsewhere, West Ham beat Lewes 3-1 after their disappointing defeat to Manchester City in the WSL on Sunday.

The Hammers goals came twice through Kenza Dali with Leane Kiernan adding a third. Lewes replied through Chloe Winchester.

London Bees faced Brighton and Hove Albion with the WSL side securing a 5-0 win. Ini-Abasi Umotong, Emily Simpkins, Victoria Williams, Amanda Nilden and Kate Natkiel provided the goals.

Coventry United secured a memorable win over Aston Villa. Although Villa got a goal in the first minute of the game, Helen Dermody and Amber Huges hit back for United. 

Villa's Sophie Hayward then brought things back to 2-2 and so it went to penalties.

United won the shoot-out convincingly 3-1.

Finally, Charlton Athletic and London City played in a slow-moving match until the 80th minute when Charlie Estcourt broke the deadlock with the only goal  of the game.
