Date: Tuesday, 19th September 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Olympic Stadium (London).
West Ham were lucky in the draw as they have to host one of the weakest teams in the English Championship.
West Ham United
The Hammers started to level up their game after the 3 consecutive defeats in Premier League. West Ham managed to win against Huddersfield and draw at West Brom in their last 2 matches.
The Irons will fight hard in the League Cup as this is their only realistic chance of qualifying in Europa League after their very poor start of the EPL. Even so, Slaven Bilic’s men will most likely suffer a change in the first eleven as they have to play against Tottenham in the weekend.
The Trotters are the “red lantern” of the Championship with only 2 points accumulated in the first 8 rounds.
In the previous round of Carabao Cup, Bolton barely got pass Sheffield Wednesday with 3-2 after they Bolton led with 3-0. Unfortunately for The Trotters, they meet a PL side which will make their mission much tougher.

West Ham vs Bolton Wanderers: Prediction
The Hammers should win this match because of their more valuable roster, but Bolton are advantaged by the h2h history and by the fact that West Ham are likely to rest some players for the weekend clash against Tottenham.
