Tottenham will be looking to book their place in the quarter finals of the League Cup when they take on West Ham at Wembley on Wednesday night.
Here is the side we think Mauricio Pochettino will select for the game:
Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris is expected to be given a well-earned rest for this match with Michel Vorm coming in between the sticks.
Defence: Pochettino has previously suggested that Danny Rose could make his first start in almost 10 months after recovering from a serious knee injury that he sustained back in January.
Kyle Walker-Peters could get a rare chance to impress on the right with both Kieran Trippier and Serge Aurier rested while Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez should also be given the night off.
Juan Foyth could be given a run-out in defence with Jan Vertonghen keeping his place at the back while Eric Dier could drop in to the back three if Pochettino opts to stick with his preferred formation.
Midfield: Spurs have been handed an injury boost with the news that Mousa Dembele is back in training after making a swift recovery from a hip problem but he might not be risked in this game.
Victor Wanyama is still out after being sent to see a specialist about his slow recovery from a knee injury. Harry Winks is therefore expected to keep his place while Moussa Sissoko could be deployed in a central role.
Attack: Harry Kane continued his sensational form with another brace during the 4-1 win over Liverpool on Sunday but the England international is expected to be given a breather against the Hammers.
Fernando Llorente will be the man to lead the line up front tomorrow night with Heung-min Son set to continue in attack after scoring a lovely goal at the weekend.
Dele Alli should be fresh as he hasn’t played too much football of late due to his European suspension so I think he’ll retain his position in attack with Christian Eriksen rested.
Erik Lamela could make his first appearance on the bench for almost a year after finally overcoming a troublesome hip injury.
Here is how I think Spurs will line-up:
