Tottenham were in action yesterday when they travelled to The John Smith Stadium and recorded a 2-0 win way at Huddersfield. However, in the evening it was another game they had their sights on as the Lilywhites were drawn to face West Ham United in the Carabao Cup. The Hammers beat Spurs at Wembley in the 4th round of the competition last year despite Poch’s side taking a 2-0 lead.

This time around Tottenham will be travelling to the London Stadium as opposed to having it as a ‘home tie’ at the national stadium. This will be a game that Tottenham fans will be desperate to win. West Ham fans tend to consider any game against Tottenham as a cup final and for the Lilywhites, inflicting that cup final defeat feeling on The Hammers is always that little bit sweeter than winning a normal game.
However, Mauricio Pochettino will be cautious of Manuel Pellegrini’s West Ham. Yesterday saw them overcome Manchester United at their home ground and whilst United aren’t much to ber feared at the moment, it shows that The Irons are still capable of scoring goals and damaging any side on their day. The clash with West Ham is yet to have a date announced but you can bet the fans will be buzzing to get the tickets for the huge London derby.

Have faith guys. Spurs are not going to let West Ham win this one now.
Revenge will be sweet.#COYS

Hopefully if we get 2-0 up again we won’t throw it away

Going to be a tough fixture. West Ham always seem to get better just in time to play us. But I'm confident. West Ham 0-1 Spurs

West Ham are so bloody lucky that they get to have three cup-finals instead of the two this season with now this extra game!

The Tottenham fans will be looking forward to facing West Ham in the cup and will hope they can dump out the Stratford club to avenge their defeat from last season.
