The League Cup takes centre-stage this evening when West Ham United host Bolton Wanderers, at the London Stadium, in a 3rd round tie.

Ahead of the game we`ve cobbled together some early team-news.

Starting with West Ham United:

With the competition being famed for managers making wholesale changes, it`s very difficult to assess who will start and who won`t.

However, it is being suggested that Slaven Bilic is set to rest Andy Carroll, with the striker needed for our Premier League fixtures.

But, likely to feature after missing out recently with a knee injury is our club captain, Mark Noble.
Continuing with our visitors, Bolton Wanderers:

It appears that the Bolton Wanderers boss, Phil Parkinson, is also set to rotate his squad with the inference that he intends to field some fringe and youth players, to that effect midfielders Jack Earing and Ryan White have travelled with the squad, along with the defender Harry Brockbank.
