West Ham handed another Manchester tie in Carabao Cup 4th round draw


West Ham handed another Manchester tie in Carabao Cup 4th round draw

Carabao Cup heats up

After another enthralling night of Carabao Cup action, the competition is down to just 16 teams.

With Manchester City and Liverpool both going through on Tuesday night thanks to big wins over Wycombe Wanderers and Norwich City respectively, the other four sides in the Premier League’s “big six” were in action this evening.

In the biggest shock of the evening, a strong Manchester United side were dumped out by West Ham, a side they had beaten just three days prior, to make it two defeats from three games for the Red Devils.

Resting Cristiano Ronaldo, Solskjaer could still call upon Jadon Sancho and Jesse Lingard among other first-team players, but an early goal from Manuel Lanzini was one that ultimately proved decisive, meaning that Manchester United’s search for silverware this season will have to take a different direction.

Arsenal were on the right side of a comfortable 3-0 scoreline against League 1 side AFC Wimbledon, while Tottenham and Chelsea both came through penalty shootouts against fellow Premier League sides Wolves and Aston Villa to take their place in the draw.

Elsewhere, Brighton, Leicester City, Brentford, Burnley, Leeds United and Southampton all made it through to represent the Premier League. In addition, Sunderland, Queens Park Rangers, Preston North End and Stoke City all made it through from the football league.

Fourth Round Draw pits Premier League sides together

With just 16 teams left, including four of the big six, big ties were sure to be thrown up. And so it proved to be, with West Ham’s reward for beating Manchester United a game against their noisy neighbours, and current Carabao Cup holders, Manchester City.
