West Ham United fans have continued partying on Twitter after their stunning 5-3 penalty shoot-out win over Manchester City in the Carabao Cup.

The Hammers again showed their resilience and were rewarded with a brilliant win at the London Stadium, bringing an end to Manchester City’s five year dominance in the Cup competition.

The fourth-round tie ended goalless after 90 minutes, before Said Benrahma scored the decisive spot-kick.

Phil Foden fired his penalty wide to give the Hammers the advantage in the shootout.

It is the first time since 2016 City, who have won the competition for the past four seasons, have been eliminated.

It’s been a special start to the season that has seen the Hammers produce impressive performances and results.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola’s response after the game

Pep Guardiola made nine changes to his side, but City finished the 90 minutes with substitutes Foden, Gabriel Jesus and Jack Grealish on the pitch as they searched for a winner in normal time.

Despite peppering West Ham’s goal with 25 attempts, they could not find a breakthrough as the hosts claimed a famous win to advance to Saturday’s quarter-final draw.

“It’s been an incredible run,” said Guardiola after his hopes of winning the competition for a fifth straight season ended.

“On penalties they were better, congratulations to West Ham and we’ll be back next year.

“Unfortunately Phil missed it, but it’s experience and when you get this kind of experience, next time he will be better.”

West Ham assistant manager Stuart Pearce praised players

“The players deserve all the credit, while the manager drives this club on a daily basis,” Pearce said.

“He’s done a wonderful job at this club.”
