The West Ham XI to beat Man United and reach the EFL Cup semi-final
West Ham United return to Old Trafford to face Manchester United in the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup on Wednesday night.
The Irons picked up a 1-1 draw against the Red Devils in a Premier League fixture on Sunday with Diafra Sakho’s second-minute goal being cancelled out by a Zlatan Ibrahimovic header in the 21st minute.
Slaven Bilic’s side have endured a disappointing campaign so far and that draw at Old Trafford kept them one point above the relegation zone, with the club having taken 13 points from their opening 12 top flight fixtures.
With confidence seemingly low at the east London outfit, Bilic may see progression in the League Cup as a chance to boost morale in his squad as well as keeping them in with a chance of winning a major trophy – something that they haven’t done since they lifted the FA Cup in 1980.
The Hammers beat Chelsea 2-1 in the previous round and they will surely fancy their chances of defeating a below-par United side too.
