Tottenham vs West Ham
English Carabao Cup, Season 2017/18
Date: Wednesday, 25th October 2017
Kick off at 21:00 CET
Venue: Wembley Stadium. London.
Tottenham finally find the rhythm at Wembley with a 4-1 win over Liverpool on the weekend. Despite the team losing just 1 of their 7 games at this stadium this season, the performances were underwhelming. The likes of Burnley and Swansea had left with points. But things are looking bright after a thumping win over a team like Liverpool.
Spurs are unbeaten in their last 11 matches in all competitions this season. Harry Kane is in excellent scoring form, having found the back of the net 9 times in his last 6 appearances.
West Ham, poor all season and Slaven Bilic is under severe pressure following his team’s 0-3 home defeat to the newly promoted Brighton. He is on borrowed time to improve the results, which we expect will run out when the team travel to Crystal Palace for the weekend Premier League fixture.
The Hammer have 1 win from their last 4 league games and stay above the relegation zone by virtue of a superior goal difference.
West Ham’s lone away win in all competitions came in the league cup fixture against Cheltenham Town. The drew 2 and lost 3 in the process.
Tottenham vs West Ham: Head-to-head
This is the second meeting between the two teams in the current season. Spurs won 3-2 when they met at the Olympic stadium at the end of August with Kane scoring the first two goals for his team.
The teams share 2 wins each from their last four meetings.
As a home team, Spurs are unbeaten in the last three meetings with West Ham, 2 wins and 1 draw.
West Ham’s last win as a visiting team against Spurs happened in the 2013 edition of the League Cup fixture, two late goals earning them a 2-1 win.
Tottenham vs West Ham: Predictions
Spurs are in excellent rhythm and they will prove too much for the struggling Hammers to handle. Also, it is possible that Pochettino could field a fringe squad here, but it hardly make any difference to the final outcome of this game.
