West Ham have drawn Leicester City away in the Capital One Cup third round.
The Hammers went straight in to the third round due to our involvement in the Europa League earlier this summer, with the Premier League clubs who have not had to compete in Europe entering at the second round.
It’s not exactly the best of draws for us given they beat us at the King Power Stadium last season and then beat us at the Boleyn Ground two weeks ago.
Given our premature exit in Europe and our somewhat frustrating start to the Premier League season, a cup run has to be the last of our worries right now – but a bit of silverware would be the perfect way to wave goodbye to the Boleyn Ground.
So can we enjoy a decent cup run this season?
Here’s what the fans think of the draw…
Could of been worse I suppose, would of preferred to be at home. #WHUFC

Reckon it'll be time to pull out the old 'oh well, concentrate on the league innit' after we play Leicester.
