Welcome to The Independent’s live coverage of Manchester United vs West Ham United in the Carabao Cup.

It seems like just last weekend that these two sides faced one another, doesn’t it? Well, that’s because it was. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side came out on top at the London Stadium on Sunday as his side clinched a 2-1 victory in dramatic circumstances. Former West Ham loanee Jesse Lingard scored a late winner for United, but Mark Noble then came onto the pitch to miss a stoppage time penalty as David Moyes’ team squandered the chance to leave with a point.

How will that result impact the two sides this evening? They swap the Premier League for the Carabao Cup, but will there be a different outcome? Both Solskjaer and Moyes will be well aware they need to manage their squads with both league and European ambitions to deal with. That almost certainly means we will see some changes.

West Ham have not beaten Manchester United in any of their last five meetings in all competitions. And Moyes has not beaten his former club since he was sacked by them after less than one season in charge seven years ago.

Could all that change tonight? It’s not long until we find out – be sure to hang on for the last 16 draw, which will follow tonight’s matches:


Man Utd 0 – 1 West Ham

51 mins: Chance! Jadon Sancho comes close to opening his account for Man Utd. Mata flicks a dainty pass over the top and Sancho matches it with a good run off the ball. He hits the dropping ball on the volley but has to twist to work it back towards goal and the effort just goes over the crossbar. It would’ve been some goal that one.

Man Utd 0 – 1 West Ham

48 mins: West Ham have a lot of men behind the ball. Man Utd hit them on the counter-attack but Issa Diop whips the ball off Lingard. It rolls out to Van de Beek who quickly knocks it up to Sancho on the left side. He shimmies to the right and shoots but there’s three defenders in front of him and the shot is blocked.

Man Utd 0 – 1 West Ham

Second half: Manchester United restart the game and work the ball down the left. Sancho runs it inside but gives the ball away with a wayward pass towards Dalot. Masuaku intercepts but he’s tackled immediately by Mata who then plays a poor pass into the box for Lingard which is cleared by Dawson.

Man Utd 0 – 1 West Ham

Manchester United have had more possession (62%) and more shots (13) but it feels as though West Ham have done more with the ball. Obviously they’ve scored a goal but they’ve created better chances around the box.

That said Man Utd should probably have had a penalty. Mark Noble pulled Jesse Lingard to the floor in his own penalty area but Jon Moss played on and VAR isn’t in action tonight to overturn it.

Half-time: Man Utd 0 – 1 West Ham

45+2 mins: West Ham lead at the break. Manchester United have had a couple of moments where they’ve looked threatening but I think West Ham have been the better team. The opening 10 minutes were fantastic from David Moyes’ men and they’ve earned their lead.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has some things to think about. Will we see Bruno Fernandes or Phil Jones in the second half?

Man Utd 0 – 1 West Ham

45 mins: Not yet. Man Utd deal competently with the second corner and even manage to sweep up the pitch. Sancho plays a one-two with Martial to fly into the box. He goes for goal from a tight angle on the left but Areola is behind it well to parry the ball away.

Two added minutes to play.

Man Utd 0 – 1 West Ham

42 mins: Bailly can’t stop the ball running out for a West Ham corner and Man Ut have a set piece to defend. Henderson comes out to punch it clear but only gets it as far as Arthur Masuaka. He gives the ball to Kral who wins another corner for the Hammers. The visitors are ending the first half strongly. Can they get a second goal?

Man Utd 0 – 1 West Ham

39 mins: Oh it should be two! Lovely play from West Ham in the final third. Lanzini weaves into the box by linking up with Bowen. He pulls it back to Yarmolenko who chips a pass out to Coufal on the right side. The right-back drills it back into the middle where Bowen sends it wide of the near post. He’s claiming a corner as Bailly stepped in just as the shot was taken but the offside flag is up against the West Ham forward. It wouldn’t have counted even if he’d scored.

Man Utd 0 – 1 West Ham

36 mins: Good from Dawson. Van de Beek makes an underlapping run down the left wing but the centre-back tracks him and times his sliding tackle beautifully. He wins the ball, knocks it into Van de Beek and is rewarded with a throw in.
