West Ham United will take a lot of encouragement from Sunderland’s shocking win against Manchester United last night in the League Cup semi-final. In many ways, today’s Capital One Cup game against Manchester City will be a true test for manager Sam Allardyce to see how he can rally his troops against formidable opposition especially at the Etihad Stadium, which has been a fortress for City.
Meanwhile, Manchester City will want to bounce back after their disappointing 1-1 draw against Blackburn Rovers from last Saturday’s FA Cup match.
The stage is set for what should be a very intriguing match.
