West Ham United booked their spot in the fourth round of the EFL Cup after recording a 3-0 win over Bolton Wanderers at the London Stadium on Tuesday night.
Angelo Ogbonna, Diafra Sakho and Arthur Masuaku were all on the scoresheet as the Hammers recorded their second successive victory on home soil.
A difficult start to the new Premier League campaign saw West Ham lose each of their first three matches, but they have now won three of their last five games in all competitions.
Three successive clean sheets also represents a strong spell for Slaven Bilic’s side, and there is no question that the pressure has been eased on the manager, who split supporters in the early stages of the campaign.
A League Cup run would do wonders for West Ham’s confidence this season, and the London club will be in the draw for the fourth round of the competition following Tuesday’s win.
The West Ham fans were an unhappy bunch in the early stages of the campaign, but it seems that the tone has changed after a decent run of form.
