West Ham faces Spurs tonight in the fourth round Carabao Cup with Manuel Pellegrini expected to field a strong side.
A good indication is when the official club website profiles players talking about the cup game and what it means to them to platy in it. In tonight’s case that is Angelo Ogbonna and Ryan Fredericks so that is a big hint both will start in my opinion.
I am sure Adrian will come in for Luca Fabianski, as the back four I think only Issa Diop and Arthur Masuaku will remain from the team, that faced Leicester on Saturday. I predict Pablo Zabaleta, Aaron Cresswell and Fabian Balbuena will be rested and in will come Angelo Ogbonna and Ryan Fredericks.
I think youngsters Delcan Rice and Grady Diangana will keep their places in midfield as will Robert Snodgrass, they will be joined by Pedro Obiang who will replace the suspended Mark Noble. I think Felipe Anderson could be dropped to the bench with Michail Antonio starting. Marko Arnautovic is likely to be on the bench but could come on later.
Predicted Starting lineup: Adrian, Fredericks, Ogbonna, Diop, Masuaku, Rice,Obiang, Diangana, Snodgrass, Antonio, Hernandez
