MANUEL PELLEGRINI doesn't expect Manchester City's Carabao Cup exploits to have a diverse effect on their quest for a fourth Premier League title.

West Ham United left-back Aaron Cresswell has admitted it was great to see Michail Antonio score again on Friday night against Fulham and is keen to see the attacker continue his good form. 'It was three lovely years, ' he said. Travelling away to play at Manchester City is perhaps the toughest task in English football so this will be a very hard match for West Ham United.

"When you look at the teams Manuel has worked for in the past you can see he has got a very clear philosophy in terms of he wants", the Argentine said. I don't think it's a good idea to review a season when you have to play another eleven games more and you have thirty-three points to play for and you are four points from seventh or eighth position.

"From the beginning it was always to be the best team in England with their owners and technical staff, they do it very well".

Celtics told Pelicans 'everyone can be available' in potential Anthony Davis deal
In the days leading to the 2019 trade deadline, Anthony Davis requested a trade from the team that he had been with since 2012. He said that he will play for whoever wants him since it was his job and the trading talks are already out of his control.

West Ham's first league win under Pellegrini was a 3-1 win at Everton in September which was followed by another 3-1 victory at home to Manchester United later in the month. 'The fans enjoyed the football we played.

Zabaleta recalls that Pellegrini never doubted they would turn their season around, and the 34-year-old believes the future is positive under the current regime.

The German winger missed a penalty at Wembley Stadium after being brought on as a late substitute in normal time, but his side still went on to win 4-3 on pens following a goalless draw after extra time.

Manchester City and West Ham United played earlier in the season at London Stadium.
