Nathan Ake goes close to scoring for Manchester City with a header against West Ham in the Carabao CupWest Ham beat Manchester United at Old Trafford in the previous round

Holders Manchester City were knocked out of the Carabao Cup after West Ham United won 5-3 on penalties in front of an ecstatic sell-out crowd at London Stadium.

The fourth-round tie had ended goalless after 90 minutes before Said Benrahma scored the decisive spot-kick.

Phil Foden fired his penalty wide to give the Hammers the advantage in the shootout.

It is the first time since 2016 City, who have won the competition for the past four seasons, have been eliminated.

Reaction from Wednesday's Carabao Cup action

Pep Guardiola made nine changes to his side but City finished the 90 minutes with substitutes Foden, Gabriel Jesus and Jack Grealish on the pitch as they searched for a winner in normal time.

Despite peppering West Ham's goal with 25 attempts, they could not find a breakthrough as the hosts claimed a famous win to advance to Saturday's quarter-final draw.

Nathan Ake should have headed City ahead in the first half before Ilkay Gundogan missed another chance from an angle.

Hammers keeper Alphonse Areola made a fine save to keep out John Stones' close-range header while West Ham's best chance in normal time fell to Tomas Soucek.

Memorable night for Hammers

Not since losing to Manchester United at Old Trafford five years ago have City been beaten in the competition.

West Ham scored all five of their penalties and have now knocked out both Manchester clubs after winning at Old Trafford in the third round.

David Moyes, whose side sit fourth in the Premier League, made eight changes but his side dug deep to frustrate the visitors and have now kept four successive clean sheets.

They created several chances of their own in normal time before penalties from club captain Mark Noble, Jarrod Bowen, Craig Dawson, Aaron Cresswell and substitute Benrahma sent the Hammers through.
