Hammers Head to Spurs for Massive London Last-Eight Showdown!

Who will feature and what will happen when Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United lock horns in the EFL Cup Quarter Finals on Wednesday evening?

Two fierce London rivals looking to end their respective trophy droughts clash in the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup on Wednesday, when Tottenham Hotspur welcome West Ham United to North London.

Spurs returned from a fortnight’s break with a 2-2 draw against Liverpool at the weekend, while West Ham’s encounter with Norwich City was postponed.

Spurs now have a relatively short list of absentees, but fringe players, Joe Rodon, and Steven Bergwijn could get starts, as Antonio Conte looks to rotate, ahead of a busy schedule. Meanwhile, Harry Winks could retain his spot after a decent performance against Liverpool.

The Italian manager may decide to start Harry Kane up front once again, though, with the England captain having finally found his first home league goal of the season on Sunday.

West Ham must cope without Vladimír Coufal, following his controversial red card against Arsenal last time out. The Czech Republic international’s suspension creates a shortage on the right side of defence, with Ben Johnson and Ryan Fredericks also missing through injury.

West Ham’s defensive problems are not just limited to right-back, with Kurt Zouma and Angelo Ogbonna also sidelined, while the match could come too soon for Aaron Cresswell.

Like his counterpart, David Moyes may well opt to use this match to give playing time to some fringe players, including Manuel Lanzini, who has had a direct hand in five goals in his last six EFL Cup appearances.

Andriy Yarmolenko and Nikola Vlašić could also come into a forward line which hasn’t found the net in their last three games, while skipper, Mark Noble, may start in the engine room.

We are expecting a narrow Spurs victory here. Our prediction is 1-0 to the home side, with the goal found in the first half.

Tottenham Hotspur possible starting XI:
Lloris; Sánchez, Rodon, Davies; Tanganga, Winks, Skipp, Ndombele, Reguilón; Bergwijn, Kane

West Ham United possible starting XI:
Areola; Ashby, Dawson, Diop, Masuaku; Král, Noble; Vlašić, Lanzini, Fornals; Yarmolenko
