West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini hopes to have some players back from injury for the Carabao Cup clash with Tottenham.
Key trio Pedro Obiang, Marko Arnautovic and Lucas Perez all missed the 1-1 draw at Leicester City on Saturday night through injury and illness, but could return.
The Hammers host their London rivals Spurs in the fourth round of the cup on Wednesday and Pellegrini, whose list of unavailable players also includes Andriy Yarmolenko, Andy Carroll, Winston Reid, Carlos Sanchez, Manuel Lanzini and Jack Wilshere, hopes to see his options boosted for the tie.

“Maybe for this week with the cup, Pedro Obiang maybe. We will see, he worked today (Saturday) without any problems so maybe he can be fit for Wednesday,” said Pellegrini, speaking before the tragic events at the King Power Stadium following Saturday’s Premier League game.
“We need to continue monitoring the situation with Marko Arnautovic and his virus. Lucas Perez also, I am not sure, he has a pain in his foot.
“The other six players we have no option but at least to wait another couple of weeks.”
