Hull shock Leeds with exciting penalty shootout win

Hull City have shocked Premier League outfit Leeds United in the EFL Cup.

The Tigers, recently relegated to League One, were unlucky not to win in normal time as Ezgjan Alioski equalised in the 93rd minute for Leeds.

But Hull eventually secured the victory thanks to an epic 9-8 penalty shootout win.

Defender Alfie Jones scored the winning penalty to set-up a third-round tie with West Ham United.

Talking after the game, Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa said: "It wasn't a very good game from our team, we didn't defend well or attack well. We would have liked to have continued in the competition, I am sad we were eliminated, I feel responsible for the defeat.

"With our preparation for this game we thought that we were going to do more than we did. When a coach picks a team… I picked the team thinking they would have enough to beat Hull but when the team didn't have enough to beat Hull, I feel like I am responsible for the defeat.

"The team was built with players that should have shown a better performance. The deficiencies in the team were because they couldn't gel together."
