West Ham on course for full house against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup

West Ham are set to be backed by a close to a capacity crowd in their Carabao Cup game against Manchester City later this month.

Claret & Hugh claim that the Hammers are expecting a minimum 50,000 crowd as the Irons look to knock the holders out of the competition.

Tickets have been reduced, in agreement with Manchester City, and they have been selling very quickly, which should only benefit the Hammers really and should make for a cracking atmosphere at the London Stadium.

Great night in store.

Games under the lights just feel different, and this is a huge cup clash for the Hammers, which, if they win, could lead to a real chance of winning a trophy.

David Moyes’ side knocked Manchester United out of the last round, and if they could beat Manchester City, that would be two of the top teams in England out of the competition.

Now, given the way that the Irons play under Moyes, we think that if they do beat City, they would have a real chance of winning the Carabao Cup.

There is still a long way to go, but a full crowd backing the players can only be beneficial, and Pep Guardiola could make a lot of changes.

Moyes might as well, but Guardiola played a lot of youth players in the last round [Daily Star].

We don’t want to get too excited, but this looks to be a serious chance of beating City and making a huge step towards winning a trophy, which you must say would be totally deserved for Moyes and his team.
