Trevor Sinclair wants West Ham to beat Manchester City

Trevor Sinclair wants West Ham to beat Manchester City in the Carabao Cup this evening.

Speaking on talkSPORT, the former Irons and City striker revealed his thoughts on the game, and it seems as if Sinclair wants the Irons to win.

He believes that Pep Guardiola’s side don’t need to win this trophy again, and it would be better for the Hammers if they can get through to the next round.

He said: “I’m leaning towards West Ham, which might horrify a few City fans.

“Looking at what David Moyes has achieved over the last couple of years, I’d like to see them go on and win a bit of silverware.

“I think this is the best opportunity they’ll have.

“Manchester City have got bigger fish to fry, they’ve got a lot of tournaments that they are competing in, and I am sure they’ll do very well.

“They don’t actually need it, and I’d like to see West Ham win a trophy.”

A strong message from Sinclair.

We pretty much agree with everything that Sinclair says here because City have won this trophy many times before, and the Hammers under David Moyes probably deserve to win something.

The transformation has been incredible, and if they can knock Guardiola’s side out of the competition, then the tournament really starts to open up.

Chelsea are through, but they only scraped through. Meanwhile, Arsenal and Sunderland are also through.

Now, you would think the Hammers would fancy anyone if they could beat City tonight.

This is a big night for the Irons, and we hope they turn in a worthy performance that at least gives them the chance of beating City in front of a packed London Stadium.

Guardiola admitted that he would play some of the younger players, so this is certainly a chance for the Irons, and we hope they take it and make it through to the next round [Manchester City official website].
