Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction vs West Ham United (League Cup)


league cup trophy

Happy Halloween! Get in the festive spirit with a London derby fourth round League Cup clash. Tottenham Hotspur will make the short trip to the London Stadium to take on a very banged up West Ham United side. Spurs are still in search of their first trophy of the Mauricio Pochettino era (no, the International Champions Cup simply does not count) and this tournament could provide the perfect opportunity to clear that hurdle.

That said, we don’t expect to see a lot of typical first team players in the starting lineup tonight, but we do think the Argentine will include a couple. Expect a lot of squad rotation for this match.
