West Ham vs Tottenham: Slaven Bilic facing selection headache for London derby

West Ham have officially confirmed their starting line-up and substitutes to play host to Bolton Wanderers at the London Stadium, in an EFL Cup tie this evening.

"We will recover on Wednesday and then on Thursday and Friday we're going to work hard to see that we can win this game on Saturday".

Slaven Bilic has been getting a lot of stick since the start of the season, but he is the right man for West Ham.

"But I spoke to him and he is a great lad and I said "we have priorities and at the moment the team needs you there" and he is doing the job, of course". The second was never far away and it soon arrived when Sakho extended the home side's lead after he was found by Arnautovic, who was thoroughly enjoying himself on his first home appearance since his £24m move from Stoke City. They came here and wanted to impress, but I think we handled this perfectly.

Bilic, who has eased pressure on his position with four points in West Ham's last two games, also admitted that Carroll will not be risked against Bolton, saying: "We have to manage him. Tottenham is a very good team".

What TV channel is West Ham vs Bolton on?

Bilic has done really well considering the club has only spent £4million - when you take into consideration player sales and wages - in the last couple of years and he doesn't get the credit he deserves.

There is better news for West Ham with the announcement that James Collins' ankle injury is not as serious as first feared. Where he is going to play in his career, I really don't know. He's got that quality and that something extra, I like him as a player but sometimes he gets happy with the few things that he does when I want him to push the borders.

He told the press ahead of the Bolton game: "Of course, we are very ambitious and of course we are thinking about the cup in a positive way".

"We are managing him, to be fair, a little bit differently this season".
