The Hammers played host to Man City in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup tonight at the London Stadium.

Considering the fact that we were playing against one of the best sides on the planet, however, if not the best, the boys did really well.

Ben Johnson has been one of West Ham’s stand-out performers in recent weeks.

The Hammers right-back had his hands full with Raheem Sterling all night.

He coped with the Man City star comfortably though.

If the 21-year-old carries on like this, Vladimir Coufal will have his work cut-out trying to force his way back in the side.
