Manchester United trapped against West Ham, Lacazette and Arsenal regain confidence


The last matches of the round of 16 of the Coupe de la Ligue were played on Wednesday. The night’s poster pitted Manchester United against West Ham at Old Tafford, who had previously faced off in the Premier League last weekend. The Hammers surprised the Red Devils with a left-footed goal early in Argentina’s attacking midfielder Manuel Lanzini (9th) against a reshaped team of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who deprived himself of his executives. Faced with Wimbledon (English D3), Arsenal regains a little confidence with a success at home (3-0), thanks to an Alexandre Lacazette in form, author of a goal (11th) and an assist for Emile Smith Rowe ( 77th).

In a meeting with twists and turns, Tottenham could have won on the lawn of Wolverhampton thanks to the goals of French Tanguy Ndombele (0-1, 14th) and captain Harry Kane (0-2, 23rd), but Leander Dendoncker (1- 2, 38th) and Daniel Podence (2-2, 58th) put the two teams equal, synonymous with shots on goal, which the Spurs of Nuno Espirito Santo won against his former club (2-3 in the tabs). Finally, in the other poster ended on a penalty session, Chelsea were held in check at home by Aston Villa. If Timo Werner opened the scoring after the locker room (54th), Cameron Archer allows the Birmingham club to continue to believe in it (64th). A penalty shootout won by the Blues, thanks to failed attempts by Ashley Young and Marvelous Makamba on the Villains side (4-3 on tabs).
