A dip in form and a subsequent poor run of results, has seen the Hammers drop back down the Premier League table.
Tonight, at the London Stadium, the Hammers have some respite from their bread and butter campaign when they welcome Tottenham Hotspur to their neck of the woods for a Carabao Cup tie.
At stake, for the winners, is a place in the last eight with a trip to Wembley looming large on the horizon.
West Ham, having lost to Tottenham Hotspur in a recent Premier League clash at the London Stadium, will be looking to get the better of Tottenham this time around.
However, as is usually the case in this competition, the team selections could prove to be interesting with both Pellegrini and Pochettino set to rotate their starting eleven, due to injury and fatigue, to give those usually on the fringe of the action a chance to shine.
With the kick-off looming large, we are now able to bring you the team-sheets.
