1 December 2022

Newcastle United goalkeeper Nick Pope has been named as the Carabao Cup Player of the Round for Round Three.

The stopper's penalty heroics helped the Magpies progress, beating top-flight rivals Crystal Palace 3-2 on penalties after the tie finished goalless.

Pope, who jetted out to Qatar to join up with England for the World Cup 2022. pulled off three saves in the shoot-out as Newcastle booked their place in the last 16 in the competition.

Meanwhile, Nottingham Forest's Renan Lodi has claimed the Goal of the Round for his opener in a 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur.

The defender gave Forest the lead in the 50th minute with an impressive effort from outside the area which was recognised as Round Three's standout strike.
