Man United next in cup

West Ham United have been paired with Manchester United in the Carling Cup quarter-finals.

The Hammers will take on Sir Alex Ferguson's men at the Boleyn Ground, knowing they are just one win away from a two-legged semi-final and only two ties from Wembley.

The tie is provisionally due to be played in the week beginning 29 November.

Manager Avram Grant has a Wembley pedigree with Chelsea and Portsmouth, and believed this year's competition could have a hugely positive impact on his men.

"I believe in this team, I believe in this club. I believe if we do the right things, as we are trying, we will succeed. We're going forward step by step. When you want to build a winning mentality, you need to show desire and passion.

"For us it is a good competition. We wanted to be in the last eight after working so hard in the previous round before Stoke against Sunderland. Now we just want to be in the last four. A home draw is good."
