West Ham dumped holders Manchester United out of the Carling Cup with a stunning 4-0 victory inspired by Jonathan Spector's first goals in English football.

Spector had never scored during his six seasons in the Barclays Premier League but here the USA defender struck twice to begin a rout that sent Hammers fans delirious.

Further damage was done by Carlton Cole after the interval with the England marksman pouncing twice to bring feeble United crashing back down to earth after their 7-1 drubbing of Blackburn.
