Our football match prediction:
There will be fireworks when Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United, the two fierce rivals, face each other in the London derby. A place in the League Cup quarter-finals is at stake and, no doubt, both teams are going to take Tuesday’s football match very seriously. Spurs have been playing above expectations at Wembley Stadium this season, but they are still considered favourites to make it to the quarter-finals. Coach Mauro Pochettino is likely to mix the squad against West Ham and there is every chance Fernando Llorente will lead the attack for the hosts. The Hammers set up a meeting with Tottenham by beating the likes of Cheltenham Town and Bolton Wanderers, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Spurs. Taking everything into account, we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Tuesday’s match as they have been in a fine form at the start of the season.
