Grady Diangana scored twice on debut as West Ham thumped Macclesfield Town 8-0 in the cup.
In last night’s EFL Cup fixture at The London Stadium, West Ham claimed their biggest win since 1983.
The Hammers progressed to the next round in style, with a number of players getting on the score sheet.
After Michail Antonio opened the scoring the floodgates opened.
Robert Snodgrass grabbed two goals, Lucas Perez netted and defenders Angelo Ogbonna and Ryan Fredericks also got on the score sheet.
Diangana capped the scoring with West Ham’s seventh and eighth goals on the night.
Diangana looks a special talent. Manuel Pellegrini put his faith in him by giving him his debut in the starting XI.
And the 20-year-old did not disappoint. The left-footed attacking midfielder was a threat all night and deserved his brace.
Here are what West Ham fans thought of the academy product’s senior debut.

They scoffed @WisdenCricket @collinsadam when I said I was off to see the Hammers. Well, I’ve seen them ship a few over the years but I have never seen them score 8 (EIGHT). And what a display from the 20-year-old (Paul O’)Grady Diangana #WHUFC pic.twitter.com/yuk8W0XzpF
