West Ham beat Manchester United and Manchester City to reach the Carabao Cup quarterfinals

Manchester City was eliminated from the Carabao Cup after West Ham United beat Manchester United 5-3 on penalties, in front of a sold-out crowd at London Stadium.

Phil Foden swung his penalty wide to give Hammers an advantage in the shootout.

This is the first time City has been eliminated since 2016, when they won the competition in the previous four seasons.

Pep Guardiola made nine substitutions to his team, but City ended the 90-minute match with substitutes Foden Gabriel Jesus and Jack Grealish pitchside as they tried to find a winner in normal times.

Although West Ham tried 25 times to score, they couldn't find a breakthrough and the hosts won a famous victory to reach Saturday's quarter-final.

Guardiola said, "It's an amazing run," after his hopes of winning for the fifth consecutive season were dashed.

"On penalties, they were better, congratulations West Ham and we'll return next year.

"Unfortunately Phil missed it. But it's experience. When you get this type of experience, the next time you do it again, it will be better."

Nathan Ake should have led City to victory in the first period, before Ilkay Gundogan missed a second chance from an angle.

Alphonse Areola, Hammers' goalkeeper, made a great save to stop John Stones' short-range header. West Ham's best chance was in normal time to Tomas Soucek.
