Hammer blow for United as holders go out

Holders Manchester United were knocked out of the English League Cup after the Premier League leaders suffered a shock 4-0 loss away to bottom of the table West Ham at a snowy Upton Park on Tuesday.

United, who’ve won the trophy for the past two seasons, found themselves 2-0 down behind before half-time after Jonathan Spector struck twice.

And another double, from England striker Carlton Cole midway through the second-half, sealed victory for the Hammers.

In Tuesday’s other quarter-final, also an all top-flight clash, Arsenal beat Wigan 2-0 across London at the Emirates Stadium thanks to an Antolin Alcaraz own-goal and a second-half effort from forward Nicklas Bendtner.

Wednesday’s last eight clashes see a ‘Second City’ derby between Premier League pair Birmingham and Aston Villa while second-tier Ipswich are at home to top-flight West Bromwich Albion.

    United defended poorly

    SAF didnt calculate the game prospects properly.. took Westham with no seriousness

    The refree was blind

    the game was a real pain to watch

    Jonathan Spector actually scored? Wow. I’m a United fan, but country comes over club for me. Spector’s American, so to me, this actually isn’t so much of a loss.
