Carroll To Lead The Line – Strongest 4-2-3-1 West Ham Line-up To Face Tottenham In Carabao Cup

Predicted West Ham United Line-up To Face Tottenham Hotspur In The Carabao Cup

West Ham United will go head to head against London rivals Tottenham Hotspur, in the Round of 16 stage of the Carabao Cup, on Wednesday night, at the Wembley Stadium. 

The Hammers find themselves under intense pressure coming into the game, following their 3-0 loss to Brighton & Hove Albion this past weekend in the Premier League. Manager Slaven Bilic is under the scanner and could face the axe if results don’t go his team’s way in the coming few games. The two teams have already faced each other in the Premier League this term, with Spurs coming out 3-2 winners and West Ham will be keen on avoiding a similar fate.  

Team News 

Striker Diafra Sakho is a slight doubt to feature due to a back strain, while defender James Collins is another one who’s doubtful to be involved, owing to an ankle problem. Andy Carroll will be back after serving his one match ban. 

Here’s how the Hammers could take the field at the Wembley against Spurs:

Manager: Slaven Bilic 

Formation: 4-2-3-1 

Adrian (GK) 

Adrian has been the preferred option between the sticks for the cup competitions. Should start ahead of Joe Hart.  


Sam Byram (RB) 

With Pablo Zabaleta not covering himself in glory against the Seagulls on Friday night, Sam Byram could get a look in at right-back for the cup tie. 

Declan Rice (CB) 

The youngster has been impressive each time he’s been given a chance and might be backed to shine against Tottenham on Wednesday night.

Angelo Ogbonna (CB)

The Italian is the most likely candidate to partner the youngster in the heart of the defence, having started the last cup tie as well. 

Aaron Cresswell (LB) 

The 27-year old Englishman will take the left-back slot against Spurs on Wednesday, after sitting out against Brighton. Arthur Masuaku should make way.  

Pedro Obiang

Pedro Obiang (CM)

The Spanish midfielder is a constant fixture in the middle of the park for the Hammers and that is unlikely to change for the cup game.  

Edimilson Fernandes (CM) 

The young midfielder made an appearance from the bench on Friday night and might be in for a starting role against Tottenham.  

Michail Antonio (RW) 

The England international did not have the best of the games against Brighton on Friday, and will be keen on bouncing back with a strong performance against Spurs. 

Manuel Lanzini

Manuel Lanzini (CAM) 

The Argentine’s return to fitness has been a big boost for West Ham. While he may not be back to his best yet, his presence in the line-up is unquestionable.  

Andre Ayew (LW) 

On the left flank, it should be Andre Ayew who could get the nod, ahead of Marko Arnautovic, after the Austrian’s hapless show on Friday. 

Andy Carroll (ST) 

With Sakho a doubt for the game, Bilic could opt to go with Carroll at the top of the attack, in order to afford some rest to Javier Hernandez.

One other point I would like to express is that there are lots of games available and which are designed specially for toddler age children.

This helps to keep a child occupied without having the experience like they are learning. Thanks”
