LONDON — Manchester City thrashed Hull 4-1 and advanced to the League Cup semifinals on Tuesday, while Everton and Stoke also progressed with victories against second-tier opposition.

Kelechi Iheanacho tapped in from close range, before a quick-fire double by De Bruyne, including a stunning free kick, completed City's scoring.
Andrew Robertson got a last-minute consolation goal for Hull.
Everton won 2-0 at Middlesbrough. Gerard Deulofeu scored first, shooting low from the edge of the penalty area after a weaving through the middle of the pitch.
Deulofeu then crossed in for Romelu Lukaku to double Everton's lead.
