LONDON, Sept 23 (Reuters): Manchester United crashed out of the English League Cup as West Ham avenged their painful loss to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side with a 1-0 win at Old Trafford, while Chelsea and Tottenham survived penalty shoot-outs to reach the fourth round on Wednesday.
The Hammers suffered a gut-wrenching 2-1 defeat against United in the Premier League on Sunday when David De Gea saved Mark Noble's stoppage-time penalty after Jesse Lingard's late winner.
But David Moyes' men got a measure of revenge three days later as Manuel Lanzini's first-half goal dumped United out in the third round.
It was a frustrating night for United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who saw another route to silverware blocked as he chases his first trophy in the Old Trafford hot seat.
Ryan Fredericks ghosted past Alex Telles and cut back for Lanzini to sweep past United goalkeeper Dean Henderson in the ninth minute.
At Stamford Bridge, Chelsea won 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw against Aston Villa.
Kane, without a goal in his four previous games, increased Tottenham's advantage after 23 minutes.
