West Ham claimed a shock victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford on
Wednesday to advance to the last 16, Lanzini put David Moyes side in front in the
9th minute and the reds failed to utilize the chances they created.
At the end of the game, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was reluctant to scrutinize Anthony
Martial’s performance in Manchester United’s Carabao Cup defeat to West Ham.
Martial made only his second start of the season in the 1-0 loss and surprisingly
stayed on for the full duration as United bowed out in the third round.
According to Solskjaer “It was a poor start and then when we decided that we wanted
to join the game we played some good football,” Solskjaer explained. “Loads of shots,
loads of pressure, very good attitude, but we lacked that [cutting edge], definitely.”
Premier League newcomers Brentford will travel to Championship Stoke, with the
ties scheduled to take place on the week commencing October 25.
