Manchester City lost out on penalties to West Ham in the Round of 16 stage of the Carabao Cup at the London Stadium on Wednesday evening.
Pep Guardiola’s side were held to a 0-0 draw at the London Stadium before the tie was forced into a penalty shoot-out.
The defeat means Guardiola’s recent dominance over the competition has come to an end after a heroic effort from David Moyes’s side.
Though the first-half saw City dominate possession, the visitors found little joy in the final third due to some resolute defending by David Moyes’ side, who caused City their fair share of problems.
Many Sky Blues were left unimpressed with the first half performance of Kevin De Bruyne, who is yet to hit his best after returning from injury.
Some City supporters believe he is yet to hit his best form so far this season.
