Everton and Leicester progressed to the third round of the Carabao Cup, while League One side Sunderland knocked out Burnley.
Iwobi makes his mark for Everton
Everton boss Marco Silva handed out several starting debuts on Wednesday night as Fabian Delph, Djibril Sidibe, Alex Iwobi and Moise Kean all made their first starts at Lincoln.
It did not look good at first as Lincoln took the lead after just 21 seconds, but Everton fought back to lead thanks to a stunning free-kick from Lucas Digne and a Gylfi Sigurdsson penalty.
Bruno Andrade then thundered in a superb leveller for Lincoln, but Iwobi netted late on to put the Toffees back in front - his first goal for the club - before Richarlison sealed a 4-2 win at Sincil Bank.
Sunderland comeback stuns Burnley
It looked as though it would be a comfortable night for the Premier League club as Jay Rodriguez grabbed his first goal since returning to Burnley.
Sunderland, however, had other ideas and Will Grigg pulled them level at Turf Moor before the break. The Black Cats were the more alert after the restart, as well, as Tom Flanagan and George Dobson struck in three second-half minutes to seal a surprise 3-1 win.
Leicester see off Newcastle in shootout
Steve Bruce and Brendan Rodgers had both committed to taking cup competitions seriously this season, and they named strong line-ups at St James' Park.
Leicester struck first as James Maddison scored a free-kick, but Yoshinori Muto struck after the break to level the game at 1-1 and send it to penalties.
Jonjo Shelvey and Isaac Hayden missed for Newcastle, while Harvey Barnes missed for Leicester, allowing Jamie Vardy the chance to step up to seal a 4-2 shoot-out win, and send the Foxes through.
Forest Green pay the penalty
Forest Green were playing their first game against top-flight opposition and they did well to keep out Bournemouth for 90 minutes.
Their penalties were not so good, however, as they saw all three of their efforts saved by goalkeeper Mark Travers as Bournemouth won it 3-0.
Super Swans are flying
Swansea have been in excellent form under Steve Cooper this season and, even with a few changes, they kept that up with a majestic 6-0 victory over League Two side Cambridge.
They were five up at half-time as Kristoffer Peterson, George Byers, Sam Surridge (2) and Jordan Garrick struck, while Wayne Routledge grabbed another after the break at the Liberty Stadium.
Nuhiu sneaks it late for Wednesday, Pompey progress
It looked for all the world like the South Yorkshire derby at the New York Stadium would be going to penalties as well, but Atdhe Nuhiu had other ideas, scoring in the sixth minute of added time to nick a 1-0 win for Sheffield Wednesday at Rotherham.
Portsmouth, meanwhile, earned a 2-0 win at Championship side QPR thanks to a second-half penalty from John Marquis and a late Marcus Harness goal.
