West Ham vs Tottenham
English League Cup
Date: Wednesday, 31 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: London Stadium (London).
Tottenham will have a chance to get revenge on the Hammers for a 2-3 defeat in the last 16 round of the previous term of League Cup. This year’s draw has joined these two sides together at the very same stage of the competition. Spurs head into it as favourites, but it will be very interesting to see how the team will react after a tough trip to Manchester and the clash with the defending Premier League champions on Monday.
The visitors will thus have less than 48 hours to recover for this last 16 round tie against the Hammers, There are no doubts Pochettino will mix up his cards here given the Premier League still remains the main goal for the team. He did so in the previous round of the League Cup when Sours advanced past another Premier League side Watford on penalties after the regular time ended in a 2-2 draw.
West Ham vs Tottenham: Head-to-head
Tottenham will be looking for their landmark 50th victory over the Hammers here.
West Ham won 40 in 114 matches so far.
Both teams were on the scoreline in three of last four head to head affairs.
The two sides played each other ten days ago in the Premier League clash. Tottenham took a narrow 0-1 victory at London Stadium thanks to a goal from Erik Lamela (his third in fifth appearance in the league this season).
West Ham vs Tottenham: Prediction
The hosts bagged as many as eight goals past the League Two opposition Macclesfield Town in the previous round of the League Cup. They are, however, winless ever since. The win was followed by back-to-back defeats to Brighton and Tottenham and a draw to Leicester City away at King Power on Saturday.
The Hammers notched just one goal in the process. We expect both teams to make plenty of changes to their standard squads here. In such circumstances, the value is with Spurs who are 1.45 not to lose at London Stadium.
