Close your eyes. You’re at Wembley Stadium. The crowd is roaring as West Ham United are back at the hallowed ground. Our opponent: Tottenham Hotspur. It may not be a cup final, but it’s Round 4 of the Carabao Cup.
In news which has definitely gone down well, it appears the Irons will be playing Spurs a few times this season. However, it seems there will still be a challenge, although it’ll be a little easier than usual.
According to ESPNFC.com, Tottenham Manager Mauricio Pochettino discussed Spurs’ long term plan, saying “"The project here at Tottenham is to try to win the Premier League or the Champions League. For me, that is the two big trophies,"“
With that being said, it would appear that although Pochettino would like to take the Carabao Cup to the new White Hart Lane, he’d prefer something like the Premier League or even the Champions League.
So, what does this mean for West Ham United?
With this information in mind, it appears they could be a tough opponent, but it wouldn’t be the end of their world should West Ham United knock them out.
It’ll be a trip to Wembley to remember though. The last time West Ham were at Wembley would be in 2012 when we faced Blackpool and won 2-1 at full time.
We’ll do a full preview closer to the time, but all I can say for sure is watch this Premier League match closely. This will show us how Spurs will play in the Carabao Cup as well.
Come On You Irons
