West Ham have to overcome the hurdle of Liverpool to reach the semi-final of the Carabao Cup tonight, with hopes that we will have enough to book our place amongst the final 4.

David Moyes side head to Merseyside to take on a title-chasing Jurgen Klopp side, fully aware of the retched record we have at Anfield, with one 1 victory recorded in the last 60 years – however there is a real feeling of belief around east London at present.

The club showed last season it has the stomach for the big occasions, with West Ham lifting a trophy for the first time in 43 years, which in-turn has help shift the landscape in how we are perceived in the football world, and therefore creates an air of confidence.

The West Ham Way Podcast duo Dave Walker and ExWHUEmployee have given their thoughts ahead of the fixture, with both completely in agreement that tonight presents a big chance for David Moyes’ side.

“What an amazing opportunity we have tonight and I hope the boys are up for it,” stated Walker as he travelled up north for the game.

“It’s not gonna be easy but if we keep it tight at the back and take our chances on the counter we have every chance of reaching the semi final of a competition we have never won.”

Ex was in agreement, although shared some concerns surrounding the reoccurring virus.

“I think we have such a great opportunity tonight and I really want to see us give it our best,” said our club insider. “I understand the squad has a few concerns, but hopefully whoever starts understands the importance of this game and if we get through this round – we have a great chance of going all the way.”
