United Want Revenge Against West Ham Says Ander Herrera



Ander Herrera is hoping that Manchester United will exact some revenge on West Ham United tomorrow night in the EFL Cup. Man United dominated all the stats in the stat sheet Sunday, but still ended up with a 1-1 draw that very much felt like a loss for the Red Devils.

It’s a very quick turnaround for the two sides who will obviously be quite familiar with each other, having just played a couple days ago. It sounds like United will be very motivated against the Hammers. They should be. Remember last season, down the final stretches when the Red Devils had a result in hand, but the Hammers snatched it way from them?

In the infamous West Ham fans attacking the United player bus contest? United dropped points and it really had consequence on their UEFA Champions League chances. Had United finished off the Hammers, they might have finished ahead of Manchester City in the top four.


So there is kind of a rivalry brewing here.

United midfielder Ander Herrera expressed some emotion about the imminent EFL Cup Quarter-Final

“It’s positive that we are playing on Wednesday, when we can get revenge,” he told the club’s official website. “We can turn our luck in the next game in the EFL Cup.”

“It doesn’t matter the competition, it doesn’t matter the game, we just want to win. We want to fight for everything and we want to make our fans proud.”

“We were the dominant team so hopefully, on Wednesday, we can create as many chances as we did [on Sunday] and normally we should win.”


While Ander Herrera feels confident that the Old Trafford outfit will win, he knows better than to take the London club lightly.

“West Ham are a good side – it is not easy to stop them creating chances. They have [Manuel] Lanzini, they have [Diafra] Sakho, they have [Dimitri] Payet, they have [Michail] Antonio – they have very good players,” he added.
