Wednesday evening’s EFL Cup quarter-final tie between Manchester United and West Ham United at Old Trafford will be the second meeting between the teams in four days following Sunday’s 1-1 Premier League draw.

It’s been a season of underachievement for both teams in the league to date, with Manchester United having already fallen well off the pace in the title race and the Hammers struggling just a point above the drop-zone.  

Diafra Sakho gave West Ham the lead in the opening couple of minutes of Sunday’s game, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic equalised in the 21st minute with the aid of a first Premier League assist of the season from Paul Pogba.  The Red Devils would have gone on to win all three points but for the heroics of Darren Randolph in the visitors’ goal.

The match was also notable for Jose Mourinho being sent to the stand for the second time this season for his reaction to Paul Pogba’s yellow card for diving.

Both teams secured notable city rivals as scalps in the last round of the competition, with Manchester United seeing off Manchester City 1-0 at Old Trafford and West Ham beating Chelsea 2-1 at the London Stadium.

The competition is now at the stage where those still in it will be taking it increasingly seriously.  These two teams could certainly do with the confidence boost that a place in the last four would bring.  Manchester United will also be able to draw upon last season’s 2-1 victory at the Boleyn Ground in the FA Cup quarter-final against the Hammers for inspiration.

Although Manchester United have had a couple of decent wins at home to Fenerbahce and Feyenoord in the Europa League, they’ve generally struggled to make the breakthrough at Old Trafford this season.

Mourinho’s team did enough on Sunday to suggest they should prevail on this occasion but, with the Hammers having improved since some decidedly shaky defending early on this season, this could be another tight game between these two, so backing the Red Devils to win by any one-goal margin at 11/4 looks to be a good value punt.
