Tottenham Hotspur vs West Ham Match Preview
It is derby time in the League Cup as Tottenham Hotspur look to build on their fantastic weekend win when they welcome London neighbours West Ham United to their temporary home Wembley. This Tottenham Hotspur vs West Ham fixture would be played on Wednesday night.
It was long time coming, but when it did, Tottenham fans were left delighted! The 4-1 thrashing of Liverpool at Wembley during the weekend extended their unbeaten streak to 11 in all competitions. The win put them level on points on the Premier League table with 2nd placed Manchester United. More than anything else, the win shattered the lingering doubts in certain quarters of Tottenham’s form at Wembley. Spurs will look to build on that as they target progress in the League Cup. However, manager Mauricio Pochettino will have one eye on the Premier League and Champions League commitments which means there could be a lot of rotation on the cards for the hosts.
The visitors are looking in a tight spot in the Premier League with the Hammers 16th on the table and ahead of the relegation zone only on goal difference. A 3-0 loss on Friday against Brighton didn’t bring the good atmosphere in team, so the match against Spurs could be a good chance for visitors to improve their performance. To say that the manager Slaven Bilic is under pressure is an understatement as the gaffer knows that critics are already baying for his sacking. A defeat to Spurs may not be catastrophic but a loss next weekend in the Premier League to Crystal Palace may prove to be the final straw. That could mean rotation for the Hammers’ key players too with the Croatian likely to call upon some of the youngsters.

Tottenham Hotspur vs West Ham Predictions
Even a heavily rotated squad of Spurs should be a handful for West Ham. Considering their own troubles in the Premier League, West Ham could have a lot of squad members start the game. There is a ray of hope for the Hammers in the form of ‘Wembley curse’ but Spurs will be desperate to put that curse to bed once for all.
