The fourth round of the 2016/17 EFL Cup was completed on Wednesday night with three all-Premier League affairs.
The Red Devils won 1-0 thanks to a 54th-minute strike from Juan Mata to progress to the quarter-finals of the league cup competition at the expense of their local rivals.
A wonderful header from Cheikhou Kouyate opened the scoring for the Hammers in the 11th minute before a fine effort from Edimilson Fernandes three minutes into the second half opened the Swiss youngsters scoring account for the East London club.
Gary Cahill pulled one back for the Blues in injury-time but it was not enough as Slaven Bilic’s side edged past Antonio Conte’s and into the final eight.
