So who do we want?


Filed: Tuesday, 30th October 2007

West Ham could be part of an all-Premier League Carling Cup quarter final line-up should results tomorrow night go to form.

The Hammers - who became the first team through to the quarter finals courtesy of tonight's 2-1 win at Coventry - could be joined by seven other Premier League teams in this weekend's draw.

Of the remaining seven fixtures to be played in the fourth round, all feature at least one Premier League side - with two of those being all-Premier League clashes (Bolton v Manchester City and Portsmouth v Blackburn).

Should results tomorrow night go to form, the line-up for the quarter final draw could see West Ham pitted against Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Everton, Blackburn, Arsenal and Tottenham.

The last time United reached this stage of the competition was the 1999/2000 season, when Aston Villa won a replayed game - due to the Hammers fiedling an ineligible player (Mannygate) in the initial fixture - 3-1 at the Boleyn Ground.
