Jonathan Spector celebrates versus Manchester United

On This Day: Irons thrash Man Utd in League Cup quarter-final

West Ham United put on a dominant and fiery performance amid snowy conditions to thrash Manchester United 4-0 and secure a first League Cup semi-final in 20 years on this day in 2010!

The Irons were struggling in the Premier League when Sir Alex Ferguson's unbeaten Red Devils visited the Boleyn Ground for a League Cup quarter-final in late November, but the Hammers found their top form against the visitors. 

Former Manchester United youngster Jonathan Spector was in inspired form, netting a header and a close-ranged finish in the first half for his first goals in English football. 

Carlton Cole would strike twice after the interval, securing a famous win for the Irons on a night that stands long in the memory of the fans in attendance.
