Next Match: away to Man Utd, December 21
West Ham manager Sam Allardyce hopes his side can gain a much-needed fillip from their 2-1 Capital One Cup quarter-final victory over Tottenham. The Hammers had won just two of 10 matches since beating Spurs 3-0 in their previous visit to White Hart Lane and they travel to Manchester United this weekend stuck in the bottom four of the standings. "It was a fantastic victory for us," Allardyce said following the midweek win. "It's a victory we can enjoy tonight, but tomorrow it's up and at it again and getting ready for Manchester United. With a resilient performance like we showed tonight against Manchester United, hopefully we might get something there. Hopefully it will kick us on."
