West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini is demanding total focus for their Carabao Cup tie with Newport County.
Pellegrini has warned his West Ham troops that he does not want another Wimbledon humiliation.
The Hammers travel to giant-killing experts Newport County in the Carabao Cup – and all too clear in their minds is their humbling in the FA Cup at League One strugglers Wimbledon last season, where they were thumped 4-2 in one of their most embarrassing results of the campaign.
Pellegrini said: “It is very worrying, this game.
“We need to put Watford behind us and focus on the cup game. We know this is a team that eliminated Leicester and drew with Tottenham.
“We got experience of this last season with Wimbledon. So we must put all of our minds into continuing in the Carabao Cup."
