Bournemouth beat Crystal Palace 11-10 in an amazing Carabao Cup shootout after a goalless draw to set up a third-round tie with Manchester City.

After all 20 outfield players scored, Wayne Hennessey saved Bournemouth keeper Asmir Begovic's spot-kick, but then blazed his own over the bar.

David Brooks scored his second kick of the shootout and Begovic saved Luka Milivojevic's effort to send the Championship side through.

They face holders City next week.

The excellent finishing in the shootout was nowhere to be seen in 90 minutes. Bournemouth dominated with 17 shots to Crystal Palace's four - but only three were on target.

The only time they managed to get the ball in the net, Sam Surridge was flagged offside.

Stacey had a well-hit effort saved by Hennessey.

Palace forced Begovic into only one save, with the goalkeeper denying debutant Nya Kirby in the first half.

And so to a shootout the game went, with 20 flawless kicks before the keepers had their go. Hennessey pulled off a good save from Begovic but missed the chance to be a hero when his effort flew miles over the crossbar.

Begovic took his opportunity to be the hero instead when he denied Palace's first-choice penalty taker Milivojevic.
