Areola happy to help West Ham in win over Man City as streak continues

West Ham United goalkeeper Alphonse Areola was elated after Wednesday's win over Manchester City.

The Hammers eliminated City from the Carabao Cup on penalties, ending their four-year reign as holders.

Loan signing Areola has yet to concede in four appearances for West Ham.

Asked for his favourite save, Areola told the club's website: "I would say, if I had to pick one, the header from Stones maybe. It was a cross, a header and I was ready to react and save that goal.

"I was happy to help the team, to give my maximum and in the end it was just amazing, the atmosphere was fantastic.

"Of course, we want to play in this kind of game. Tonight, there was a big team in front of us. We showed lots of good things and we are happy with our performance. It shows that we can compete with the great teams.

"The whole squad is in the same focus, searching for the same things. We have to keep going like that. We have a good mentality and we want to win things, so that's a good thing."
