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.
