West Ham will travel to Manchester City this evening in their first semi-final leg of the Capital One Cup and will be keen to cause an upset.
Having dispatched Spurs in Round 5 of the competition, winning 2-1 at White Hart Lane, Sam Allardyce’s men showed they are capable of taking some big scalps this year and they don’t come much bigger than Man City.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side have shown strong form in the league this year and have beaten the likes of Wigan, Newcastle and Leicester City to get to semi-final. West Ham have beaten Cardiff, Burnley and the aforementioned Spurs to get to the semis.
The Hammers will be reeling after their recent dip in form and will be targeting a strong performance in the Capital One Cup to get them back on track. The likes of Ravel Morrison and Mohamed Diame will be aiming to perform away from home in a stadium that has become known as a fortress after City’s strong record at the Etihad this year.
Man City have got depth in their squad and with the likes of Alvaro Negredo in such good form, you can expect goals this evening.
