Time is running out for Slaven Bilic. The Croatian manager is in the midst of an ongoing storm at the London Stadium but he will be in charge at least in the next two games.

The Hammers board has given Bilic a two-match stipulated time to save his job with their Carabao Cup action against Tottenham Hotspur being the first one. The Hammers are scheduled to visit Wembley in what could be a very interesting affair.

West Ham met Spurs earlier in the Premier League and staged a late fightback where they almost snatched a point against the North London giants. But Mauricio Pochettino’s side held their nerve firm and saw out the fixture 3-2.

Despite having big guns at his disposal, Bilic failed to cope up with the pressure and it has taken a toll on his managerial future. With an eye on the Crystal Palace match, Bilic is set to rotate his squad for this cup tie.

Predicted 4-2-3-1 West  Ham United Starting Lineup Against Tottenham Hotspur

Defence

Talks regarding Adrian’s future have intensified but as of now, he is a Hammers keeper and he should make it to starting lineup. 18-year-old Declan Rice is hoping for a start in the backline. The youngster faced severe criticism for his miserable performance against Newcastle United earlier in the campaign and will have the chance to rectify it.

Angelo Ogbonna will be eyeing a call-up to the first team and needs to put up a strong performance to impress his boss. Pablo Zabaleta has made his mark since moving from Manchester City but the Argentine right-back is expected to be rested and Sam Byram will take his place.

Arthur Masuaku led the fight back against Spurs last time and will be hoping to put in a similar performance.

Midfield

Mark Noble was on the bench in the last two matches and will be filling in the midfield. His experience will be needed against an in-form Spurs side. Edmilson Fernandes had a cameo appearance in the last match and will get to start this match.

Attack

Nathan Holland has been impressive for the Hammers U23s and is likely to be given a chance on the left wing. Sead Haksabanovic will start from the opposite flank.

Manuel Lanzini will have the responsibility to lead the charge from the no.10 position. Andy Carroll is back from suspension and will be the sole striker up front. Here is how they might line up:
