Tottenham vs West Ham: In one of the more interesting matches of this round of the Carabao Cup…
Tottenham, managed by Mauricio Pochettino, and the visitors of West Ham, managed by Slaven Bilic, will meet in London, at Wembley Stadium, on a match that will define which team advances to the quarter-finals of this competition, after both teams already having eliminated some other teams on the way here.
This will be the 2nd time these two teams meet this season.
In terms of unavailable players, the hosts’ manager won’t be able to count with Wanyama and Lamela, while Kane and Dembelé are still doubtful; as for the visiting manager, he will have Michail Antonio, Sakho and Collins in doubt for this match.
Tottenham goes into this match of the Round of 16 after eliminating Barnsley, with a win obtained already during the good streak of results the team is currently on, not getting any loss since mid-August and only drawing 3 matches since then, which puts them in a great position for the rest of the season, if they are able to keep this good form going.
As for West Ham, they go into this match after eliminating Cheltenham and Bolton, having an extremely inconsistent start of the season in terms of results and performances and coming off series of match where they were only able to get 1 win out of the last 4 matches they played.
A loss on this match can also lead to the departure of the Croatian manager from the Hammers’ job.
Tottenham vs West Ham – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Tottenham is in excellent form in terms of results and exhibitions, something that doesn’t happen with the visiting team, which makes it more likely for the hosts to get the win and advance in this competition, something that I think will happen.
Besides that, West Ham is under a lot of pressure, like their manager, which might be another psychological barrier to overcome a win in this match and the following ones. This way, I expect a home win.
