The West Ham XI that beat Manchester United in the League Cup in 2010: Where are they now?

West Ham's Rodoslav Kovac celebrates after Jonathan Spector (Not Pictured) scores the second goal for West Ham

This is the West Ham United team that famously beat Manchester United 4-0 six years ago.

West Ham United travel to Old Trafford for the second time in a week on Wednesday as the two sides meet in the quarter-finals of the League Cup.

It is the first time the two teams have met in the competition in six years; the last one taking place at Upton Park back in 2010.

That occasion proved to be a happy affair for the Hammers as they ran out as 4-0 winners, courtesy of two goals apiece from Jonathan Spector and Carlton Cole.

Here is a look at the XI that featured that night and earned then-manager Avram Grant a priceless victory from his short stint in charge of the Hammers.

Rob Green

A clean sheet against Manchester United is no mean feat, especially against a team that featured Javier Hernandez up front.

Green made 241 appearances in total for West Ham before leaving to join Queens Park Rangers in 2012. He is currently in the Championship with Leeds United.

Tal Ben Haim

Signed on loan from Portsmouth in the summer, it is fair to say Ben Haim did not enjoy the best of spells with the Hammers.

This game was one of just a handful before he returned to Portsmouth in January 2011. Now 34 the Israeli international is currently turning out for Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Radoslav Kovac

Another central defender who will not be remembered by many West Ham fans, Kovac made 62 appearances in a two-year spell at Upton Park.

He left West Ham for Basel in 2011 and after spells with Slovan Liberec and Sparta Prague ended his playing career this summer aged 36.

Jonathan Spector

One of the stars of the show in this game, Spector bagged two of his side's four goals in this win. He only managed four in 115 games in a five-year spell at the club.

He was released in 2011, ending up at Birmingham City, and is still starring for them to this date, having made 16 appearances for them in the Championship this season.

James Tomkins

A more familiar name to the West Ham faithful and one that is still highly regarded among them.

Tomkins left West Ham in the summer summer after making 243 appearances for the club, joining Alan Pardew at Crystal Palace in a deal that many Hammers fans are still questioning to this date.

Matthew Upson

The last man to wear Bobby Moore’s number six shirt before it was retired in 2008, Upson made 145 appearances during a four-year spell at West Ham.

He was released by Sam Allardyce in 2011 and after spells with Stoke City, Brighton & Hove Albion, Leicester City and MK Dons he is currently without a club.

Julien Faubert

Something of an enigma, Faubert actually joined Real Madrid on loan at one point in his five years with West Ham.

This appearance was one of just sixteen for the Hammers in the 2010/11 season, six of which came in the League Cup. He left in 2012 and turned out for Kilmarnock last season before being released in the summer.

Victor Obinna

Signed on loan from Inter Milan, this game was arguably Obinna’s best performance in a West Ham shirt.

He provided all four assists in the game, helping the Hammers to their first semi-final appearance in 20 years. He did not join permanently and now plays for SV Darmstadt 98 in Germany.

Luis Boa Morte

It is fair to say that Portuguese winger Boa Morte was very disappointing for West Ham, managing just two goals in a five-year spell.

He left the club in 2011 and after spells with AEL Larissa, Orlando Pirates and Chesterfield ended up playing for Four Marks in the 12th tier of English football in 2013. He is now a youth coach for Sporting CP.

Pablo Barrera

Barrera joined West Ham in the summer of 2010 after being a part of Mexico’s World Cup squad in South Africa.

He made just 23 appearances in all competitions for the Hammers and currently turns out for UNAS Pumas in his homeland.

Carlton Cole

Another familiar name on this list, Cole made 293 appearances in all competitions for West Ham in a nine-year spell with the club, managing 68 goals in the process.

He joined Celtic in 2015 but managed five games in Scotland before being released this summer. He then joined Sacramento Republic in the USA but made just four appearances there before being released. He is currently a free agent.
