Carling Cup Preview: West Ham United - Manchester United

In the next match of the Carling Cup, Manchester United  will be traveling to face West Ham in the quarter Final Match on 30 November 2010 at the Upton Park. United are coming into this match on the back of wonderfull result against Blackburn when they hammered them with goals where 5 of them were scored by Dimitar Berbatove. Now Sir Alex will be looking to field a young team as he tend to do in these games so that his youngstres can get a run in. On the other hand West Ham are having quite a bad season in the league but will be looking to get some cup glory in the league cup.
The Hammers will be without cup-tied defender Lars Jacobsen for the visit of the holders. Midfielder Scott Parker could be rested as Irons boss Avram Grant looks to protect key men from burnout, but Kieron Dyer may return from a hamstring problem.

Mark Noble (hip) is set for another spell on the sidelines having only just returned from an appendix operation, while Manuel Da Costa (ankle), Thomas Hitzlsperger (thigh) and Jack Collison (knee) remain out.
United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is expected to make massive changes for the game against the Hammers.
Javier Hernandez, Chris Smalling and Wes Brown are amongst those who will hope to be involved, while a new goalkeeper is also expected as Edwin van der Sar stands down in favour of either Tomasz Kuszczak or Ben Amos.
Winners of the tournament for the past two seasons, United will expect a tough test against a Hammers side who recorded three successive wins over Ferguson's team prior to their present run of six victories on the trot.
West Ham (from): Green, Gabbidon, Reid, Upson, Tomkins, Kovac, Behrami, Barrera, Stanislas, Piquionne, Cole, Obinna, Stech, Boa Morte, Hines, McCarthy, Ben-Haim, Faubert, Ilunga, Dyer, Parker.
