London: Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera says his side will be out for "revenge" when they welcome West Ham United back to Old Trafford in the League Cup quarter-finals tonight.

West Ham held Herrera and his teammates to a 1-1 draw on Sunday in a Premier League match that saw United manager Jose Mourinho sent to the stands for angrily kicking a water bottle.

United have made their worst start to a league season since 1989, drawing their last four home games, and Herrera warned Slaven Bilic's West Ham players to brace themselves for a backlash.

"It's positive that we are playing on Wednesday, when we can get revenge. We can turn our luck in the next game in the EFL Cup," said the Spaniard.

"It doesn't matter the competition, it doesn't matter the game; we just want to win. We want to fight for everything and we want to make our fans proud. West Ham are a good side — it is not easy to stop them creating chances. They have (Manuel) Lanzini, they have (Diafra) Sakho, they have (Dimitri) Payet, they have (Michail) Antonio. They have very good players.

"But they just created two chances in the whole game. We were the dominant team, so hopefully we can create as many chances as we did (on Sunday) and normally we should win."
