Interesting selections this evening in the League cup ’round of 16′ or whatever the flip this might be.
It appears at first glance that West Ham are playing a more obviously ‘first pick’ starting XI which may reflect the fact that the fans are unlikely to give Slavin Bilic any ‘wiggle room’ if things don’t go well.
Which in itself would add an extra dimension of funny if Spurs were to bury this lot and part of the fallout was that the Porn Barons then fired their manager.

No Lamela and his situation looks suddenly vague again and Poch said before the game:
“Lamela is doing well but is still not available and I don’t know when he will be. I can’t say whether it will be one week or one month. We have to assess him every day and decide when he is ready, but we need to be careful.”
