Manchester City suffered their first Carabao Cup defeat in five years as they lost on penalties at West Ham.
David Moyes’ side secured a 0-0 draw to force the match to a shootout and they had Said Benrahma to thank when he scored the winning penalty for a 5-3 margin.
Alphonse Areola - who saved from Phil Foden in the shootout - had impressed before the decisive penalty kicks, and West Ham were up against a strong City side as Pep Guardiola included both Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling in his team.
