Date set for EFL Cup quarter-final


West Ham United will travel to Manchester United in the EFL Cup fifth round on Wednesday 30 November 2016 at 8pm.

The Hammers are awaiting confirmation of the Club’s ticket allocation for the Old Trafford tie, which will also be screened live by Sky Sports.

Slaven Bilic’s side have beaten League Two club Accrington Stanley and Premier League side Chelsea to reach the last-eight, while Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils have overcome League One outfit Northampton Town and local rivals Manchester City to set up their meeting with the Hammers.

West Ham and Manchester United have met twice previously in the League Cup, with each side progressing on one occasion.

Norman Whiteside’s goal settled matters at Old Trafford in the third round in November 1985, while two goals apiece from Jonathan Spector and Carlton Cole saw off Sir Alex Ferguson’s visitors 4-0 at a snowbound Boleyn Ground in a fifth-round tie in November 2010.

The two clubs met as recently as last season in the FA Cup quarter-finals, when a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford was followed by a 2-1 victory for Manchester United at the Boleyn Ground.

Ticket details will be published on and the Club’s social media channels as soon as they are confirmed.
