Robbie Savage believes West Ham will fall to a 2-1 defeat against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Wednesday evening.

The Premier League duo are set to meet at the iconic ground for the second time in just three days in the EFL Cup quarter-final stage.

The Hammers battled valiantly in the same fixture on Sunday in the Premier League with goals from Diafra Sakho and Zlatan Ibrahimovic resulting in a 1-1 draw.

However, former Premier League midfielder Savage believes that United will have too much for West Ham on this occasion and predicted a victory for the home side with betting company William Hill.

The two sides are separated by 10 places in the league with Manchester United in sixth and West Ham in 16th.

However, the cup competition has so far proven to be one of the bright lights in a dismal Hammers campaign.

There is a place waiting in the semi-final stages of the tournament for the winners with Liverpool and Hull already progressing with victories on Tuesday evening.

West Ham last made the semi-finals in 2014, where they lost 9-0 on aggregate against Manchester City over two legs.

They will be hoping to go further this time with the League Cup being one competition the east London outfit have never won.
