Cameron Carter-Vickers put in his best performance yet in a Bournemouth shirt, helping the Cherries pull a road upset in the FA Cup.
Carter-Vickers played 90 minutes from his center back position in a 2-0 victory Burnley on Tuesday. The Tottenham loanee won nine of his 13 duels, made seven clearances, won seven of his ten aerial battles, and also made two recoveries. It was Bournemouth’s first win over Burnley in FA Cup play, which now sets up a quarterfinal south coast derby date with Southampton in March.
After recovering from an ankle injury, Carter-Vickers will now aim to stay in the Bournemouth squad ahead of a league date with Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
Elsewhere, Weston McKennie helped Juventus advance to the Coppa Italia Final while Andrija Novakovich scored in a league draw at Ascoli. Jordan Morris and Paul Arriola both played for Swansea City on Wednesday, but couldn’t help the EFL Championship side knock off powerhouse Manchester City. Tim Weah got the start for Lille in a 1-0 Coupe De France triumph over fellow top-flight side Dijon. Brenden Aaronson scored his first league goal for Red Bull Salzburg in a win over Austria Vienna.
