Will Mauricio Pochettino keep big guns in reserve for Tottenham against West Ham?

Tottenham travel to West Ham on Wednesday night for a place in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup, something that should mean a lot to both clubs.

Spurs still have the dark cloud hanging over their head about a lack of silverware in recent years and may have a great opportunity to end that duck this season.

But it will be intriguing to see if manager Mauricio Pochettino has learned his lessons from last year.

 

Spurs were eliminated from the fourth round of the Carabao Cup on 25 October 2017 by West Ham, as they slipped to a 3-2 defeat at Wembley.

Pochettino received major criticism after the cup loss, as key first teamers Harry Kane, Hugo Lloris, Serge Aurier and Jan Vertonghen were not even included in the matchday squad and given the night off.

One year on they face the Hammers in the same stage of the competition and surely some of the big guns will play, or at the very least be kept on the bench.

Spurs’ best chance to win a trophy this season could come in the Carabao Cup and supporters will be extremely frustrated if their elite players are not involved in the 18-man squad on Wednesday.
