English great football clubs, Chelsea and Manchester City have crashed out of this year’s English Football League Cup.
Both teams suffered away losses in their Wednesday Round of 16 ties against their City rivals.
Chelsea, without the duo of Victor Moses and John Obi Mikel, were beaten 2-1 by West Ham at the Olympics Stadium in London.
At the Old Trafford, Kelechi Iheanacho fired blanks as Jose Mourinho got his pound of flesh overseeing United beat City by a lone goal.
Juan Mata was the hero for the Red Devils, scoring the only goal of the game.
Meanwhile, Southampton have also qualified for the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup having recorded a slim 1-0 win over Sunderland.
As it stands, Alex Iwobi with Arsenal is the only “high-profile” Nigerian left in the race for the League Cup.
