Three reasons winning the league cup should be a priority for West Ham

To get through to the League Cup semi-final, West Ham are required to travel to Old Trafford and beat Manchester United on their own turf.

It’s an unenviable task, despite Sunday’s credible 1-1 draw in Premier League action. Draws are all fine and well but actually defeating United in Manchester is a different prospect altogether.

It’ll take a committed and energy draining performance that in some quarters could be seen as a distraction or even a hindrance to their league form. They haven’t won in four games after all and are now facing a potential relegation battle.

That said, we believe West Ham should be putting every inch of effort into winning the League Cup to give their fans some long overdue success.
