West Ham have been drawn against Newport County in the second round of the League Cup.

These fans, this club, they need a day out at Wembley, maybe even win some silverware, and if they do that they’ll be legends.” The last major cup final West Ham reached was in 2006 where the Hammers faced off against Liverpool in the FA Cup final, and supporters this season will be hoping Pellegrini can guide the club to League Cup success following a summer of clearing out deadwood and signing big-name players.

Last season Pellegrini’s side were knocked out in the fourth round of the League Cup by London rivals Tottenham, meaning that West Ham in the previous three seasons have been eliminated in the competition by Premier League sides in the top-six as previous encounters from Transfermarkt show.

Cole said: ” From my perspective, West Ham need a cup run.

Last season Newport caused two major upsets in the FA Cup as the fourth-tier side eliminated both Leicester City and Middlesbrough from the famous cup competition.

The Exiles made it to the second round of the League Cup after beating League One side Gillingham on penalties 4-1 following a 2-2 draw in regular time at the Priestfield Stadium.

West Ham and Newport have only played each other once since 1950 when the two sides met in the 1979 FA Cup, where the Welsh side came out victors in a 2-1 win.
