The Red Devils recently ended a near six-trophy drought by winning the Carabao Cup and are still in the mix for another three titles.

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has said talk of the club being in the hunt for a quadruple this season is ‘for the fans’.

Sunday’s 2-0 Carabao Cup final win over Newcastle sealed United a first trophy since their Europa League success under former coach Jose Mourinho in May 2017.

On-loan striker Wout Weghorst later declared Ten Hag’s side is targeting four trophies (Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, and Europa League) for this season.

“That is for [the] fans,” Ten Hag said in a pre-match press conference for Wednesday’s FA Cup game against West Ham. “We have to focus on the next game and that is the only thing we are doing.

“Us, we are talking for 10 minutes and I didn’t hear the words West Ham United. I think it was the press conference for West Ham United so it’s only about this we have to talk about.

“We don’t have to talk about trophies. We have to talk about West Ham United, that is the game tomorrow.”

United return to action on Wednesday evening for a fifth-round FA Cup home tie against West Ham. For stats and a betting analysis, visit the Ace Football match preview here.
