After humiliating Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday, West Ham United was humiliated by Oxford United in the Carabao Cup.

West Ham were knocked out of the Carabao Cup in humiliating fashion as League One Oxford United produced a superb display at the Kassam Stadium to advance into the fourth round.

West Ham sits fifth in the Premier League, while Oxford is 12th in League One.

Both sides fielded what you make call weekend sides.

Oxford, who missed several chances to go ahead in the first half through Cameron Brannagan and Anthony Forde.

It took Oxford  55 minutes to break the deadlock when Elliot Moore opened the scoring.

Oxford 1-0 West Ham.

That lead could have been increased when Jamie Mackie shot, only to have West hams Roberto make a fine save.

But there was no escape for West Ham as substitute Matty Taylor turned in Mark Sykes’ cross in the 71st minute.

Substitute Tariqe Fosu, a hat-trick hero at Lincoln City, raced clear from the halfway line to score with great composure after 84 minutes to make it 3-0.

West Ham and manager Manuel Pellegrini’s humiliation was not over.

Shandon Baptiste deservedly completed a man-of-the-match performance by scoring Oxford fourth of the night.

Another giant-killing result, from the Carabao Cup. 

Oxford will now relish the opportunity to play another giantin the last 16. While West Ham will now focus on a successful league campaign.
