Tottenham Hotspur fans have to put Manchester City disappointment behind them following Monday evening’s 1-0 loss to the reigning Premier League champions as we face an incredibly quick turnaround and it’s West Ham United up next in the EFL Cup.
We make a second trip of the season to visit the Appy Ammers at their London Stadium and we can go into the game with confidence following the 1-0 victory over them only three games ago.
I’m sure as today ticks by and tomorrow rolls around the usual suspects will be talking about similar starts to the season and the guff we saw in the buildup to the last match, but the fourth round stage of the competition sees us one step closer to a return to – well, the stadium we currently inhabit – and given Champions League disappointments so far, although the Premier League campaign has to remain the priority given what’s now considered important in modern football, few should turn their nose up at the possibility of this silverware.
Wednesday – 7.45pm – COYS
In team news, Danny Rose, Vincent Janssen and Jan Vertonghen are all out but with Manchester City seeing minutes for Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli, we’ll have to see how much more they may come into Mauricio Pochettino’s plans, but we can certainly expect some changes though given it’s two games in three days.
We might even see a few youngsters get an opportunity to impress as some get a well-earned rest.
