Manchester United beat West Ham 4-1.

An excellent second half performance from Manchester United helped them ease to a 4-1 win over West Ham.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice and Anthony Martial bagged a brace, to give the Red Devils a healthy winning margin.

West Ham had equalised just before half-time with ex-United striker Ashley Fletcher scoring his first for the club since joining in the summer.

West Ham earned a draw at Old Trafford days earlier in the Premier League, but asked to repeat their success days later in the EFL Cup quarter-final they fell short.

Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville was left impressed by the performance of Jose Mourinho's side, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan among the star players.

 

Ex United trainee Robbie Savage also commented on Twitter after the game, hailing the performance of veteran midfield maestro Michael Carrick along with Mkhitaryan.

 

 

Jose Mourinho's side are now into the last four and after coming in for criticism during his first few months as manager, he would dearly love to win a trophy in his first season.

There is a real chance of doing so now, and will be among the favourites, especially if the team can replicate the exciting performance they delivered last night, with Hull City to come in the semi-final.
