Half Time: 2 - 0 London Stadium ( Attendance: NA )
1 min

Charlton Athletic are out of the Carabao Cup after losing 3-0 to Premier League side West Ham United at the London Stadium.

Sebastian Haller put the Hammers ahead after 22 minutes, following a flying run from Andriy Yarmolenko down the left hand side.

The Frenchman then doubled West Ham’s lead four minutes later heading home a brilliant cross from Robert Snodgrass.

However Charlton regrouped at the interval and looked re-energised at the start of the second period with Jonny Williams’ low volley testing Darren Randolph in the West Ham goal in the 50th minute. 

But Lee Bowyer’s side began to deflate as the game wore on and Felipe Anderson wrapped up the win 11 minutes from time after good work from Manuel Lanzini.

Key Points

Check out all the key talking points and reaction from London Football Scene below…

Key Moment

West Ham were ruthless after their opener and quickly put the game to bed with less than half-an-hour played.

Moan of the Match

West Ham completed at least 30 step overs in the Charlton box- had they been quicker to shoot the margin of victory could have been a lot higher.

Talking Point

Alfie Doughty was one of few positives for Charlton, causing West Ham’s defence problems throughout – could the youngster be a Premier League player in the making?

Man of the Match

Sebastian Haller – the striker’s header to set-up the second goal was Ronaldo-esque.

Tweet of the Match

Referee Watch

Andre Marriner (West Midlands) – a routine game for the Premier League official.


Although the London Stadium dwarfed the action on the pitch, it was still impressive to clearly hear an array of choice words from West Ham’s Robert Snodgrass throughout.


Despite the defeat, Charlton showed a lot of promise going forward with Chuks Aneke, Alfie Doughty and Jonny Williams looking strong upfront.
