West Ham United hosts Tottenham
West Ham United hosts Tottenham Hotspur in a match from the 1/8-finals of the English League Cup, also knows as the Carabao Cup. Here are our winning soccer predictions for this clash in the capital city of London.
West Ham reached this phase of the competition after crushing Macclesfield Town with 8-0 in the previous round. These two sides met at the London Stadium and things didn’t go very well for the visitors. Manuel Pellegrini’s boys brought a huge show for their fans, scoring 8 goals. This does not happen every day.
Meanwhile Tottenham reached the 1/8-finals after a 2-2 draw against Watford and penalty kicks, which were won by Mauricio Pochettino’s team. Dele Alli and Erik Lamela scored for Spurs in the regular time of the game.
In the Premier League West Ham are currently 13th with 8 points won. It was not really the best start of the season for Pellegrini’s team. The fans had huge expectations because of their manager’s reputation, but now it seems that the Chilean coach is going to need some more time.
Tottenham on the other hand are 5th in the Premier League standings with 21 points. On Monday Spurs conceded their 3rd defeat for the season, losing against the champion Manchester City at the Wembey.
It has been just 2 days since Tottenham’s game against City, so we shall expect to see the manager Mauricio Pochettino making a lot of changes in his starting line-up. Most of his starters are going to get a rest, that’s for sure.
These are our winning soccer predictions for the League Cup clash between West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night. These two teams met recently in the Premier League and Tottenham won with 1-0. Can this happen again?
