FT: Tottenham 2-3 West Ham. It's all over! What an incredible turnaround from West Ham, who looked dead and buried at half-time, but are through to the next round of the cup.
Tottenham huffing and puffing, but they can't blow West Ham's house down.
We're into four added minutes.
Eriksen's daisy-cutter is spilled by Adrian but West Ham survive.
Trippier's corner is flicked on by Alderweireld and Alli goes down as he tries to turn it home at the far post. The linesman flags, but only for offside.
Lanzini departs, slowly, and Arnautovic comes on.
Kouyate hacks clear a Trippier cross.
A bad start for Nkoudou as he overruns the ball looking to lead a counter attack.

- OnGeorges-Kévin N'KoudouTottenham Hotspur
Son off, Nkoudou on.
- OffDanny RoseTottenham Hotspur
- OnChristian EriksenTottenham Hotspur
Eriksen comes on a minute too late, replacing Rose.
It's Trippier who steps up, and Trippier who curls it wide.
Davies wins Tottenham a free-kick 25 yards from goal, just left of the goal. Alderweird and Trippier interested.
Rose and Davies combine to tee up Son, but his first touch is too heavy and the chance is gone.
- OffEdimilson FernandesWest Ham United
- OnPedro ObiangWest Ham United
Fernandes, one of the few West Ham players who looked alright in the first half, makes way for Obiang.
Alli curls one well wide from 25 yards and Tottenham are starting to look really frustrated.
Sissoko is presented with another opening as a clearing header falls to him inside the West Ham area, but he's unable to shift is bodyweight quick enough and shoots over.
- OffFernando LlorenteTottenham Hotspur
- OnMousa DembéléTottenham Hotspur
Pochettino makes the first substitution, bringing Dembele on for Llorente to try and get back some control.
Sissoko almost responds immediately for Tottenham but Adrian beats away his shot from 20 yards.
- GoalAngelo OgbonnaWest Ham United
GOAL! West Ham lead! Ogbonna meets Lanzini's in-swinging corner at the near post and glances it into the net - how incredible.
We have a game on our hands, and a stretched one at that too. The onus is on Tottenham now to respond and they've done okay since the leveller, but it's West Ham fans making all the noise.
It took a while, but they certainly have now.
A hopeful cross by SIssoko is allowed to fall to Alli, who meets it with a sweet volley, but it's straight at Adrian.
- GoalAndré AyewWest Ham United
GOAL! It's all level! Spurs suddenly look rattled and a series of scrappy headers get the ball to Lanzini less than ten yards from goal and he squares for AYew to stab home. Wow.
Spurs clear the corner.
Ayew is almost at it again, this time getting on the end of a Crewsswell cross inside the six yard box, but he heads over under pressure from Vorm. A corner is given, however.
- GoalAndré AyewWest Ham United
GOAL! West Ham have a lifeline! A Hammers corner is only half-cleared to the edge of the area, where Fernandes fires in a shot that Vorm can only parry and Ayew tucks in the rebound.
West Ham have been markedly better in this half, playing with a higher tempo, but are yet to create anything of note.
Better from the visitors as Rose is forced to but a decent cross behind, but the resulting corner is wasted.
The way Tottenham give the ball back to West Ham angers Noble, who gets into an argument with Rose, and the referee has to stop the game to sort it out.
Son goes down without any contact and stays down, leading West Ham to put the ball out of play, but he seems alright.
Spurs get the second half started.
HT: Tottenham 2-0 West Ham. The hosts have a two-goal lead without seeming to have stretched themselves. West Ham have been abysmal.
One added minute to what has been a very tepid half.
A miscued Sissoko cross bounces narrowly wide, although ADrian and Rice seemed to have the situation under control.
Vorm's first save of the night is a simple one from a weak, long-range effort by Noble.
Alli has the ball and Spurs have a two-on-two opening, but Fernadnes does well to stick with Alli and ultimately dispossess him.
- GoalDele AlliTottenham Hotspur
GOAL! West Ham stand off Tottenham in and around their own penalty area and it proves costly as Alli, in the box and under no pressure to speak of, curls one towards the far post and it goes in via a deflection from Rice.
The advertising boards proving more interesting than the football for many.
A frustrated Cresswell thrashes the ball into the crowd after Bryam was caught offside on the other flank. It's been that kind of night for the Irons thus far.
Trippier's corner amounts to nothing as referee Dean has spotted an infringement in the box.
Son tries his luck from range and it's deflected behind for a corner.
The hosts don't deal with a West Ham free-kick very well and Alderweireld makes things worse by slicing a clearance straight up but Kouyate can't capitalise, heading weakly and straight at Vorm.
Carroll has his first chance of the night as he's picked out at the top of the box by Cresswell but wastes it, first failing to connect with ball with the intended leg and then, after getting lucky on the ricochet, having his shot blocked.
Carroll has been a spectator so far and barely touched the ball.
Tottenham work a short corner down the left to Trippier, who then crosses for an unmarked Alli at the back post, and Adrian is forced into a smart reflex save to keep it 1-0.
Lanzini looks to slide Ayew in behind the Tottenham defence but Alderweireld anticipates the pass and comes away with the ball.
Cresswell shows some positive intent, carrying the ball forward, but his subsequent ball to Ayew is hit too firmly for him to control.
West Ham have a had a decent amount of possession since the goal, and look comfortable on the ball, but haven't done anything with it.
That was a lovely, incisive move from Tottenham, but West Ham's defence looked to be all over the place. Not the start Bilic needed.
- GoalMoussa SissokoTottenham Hotspur
GOAL! Spurs break quickly as Llorente releases Son with a beautiful flick and the South Korean commits the last defender before squaring to Sissoko, who finishes coolly.
Not the best start for Foyth, who gives away the ball on halfway with a loose touch. West Ham chose to pass backwards though, so it's not costly.
Both teams look to be playing a variation of the 3-5-2 formation to begin the game.
West Ham get the game underway,
The teams are out are a half-full Wembley, both in their traditional colours.
West Ham have played once before at the new Wembley, at the end of the 2011-12 season, when they beat Blackpool 2-1 in the play-off final.
Some breaking news regarding one of the managers in last year's final.
As for Tottenham, they looked brilliant again at the weekend and poised for another tilt at the Premier League title, but as impressive and fun as Mauricio Pochettino's team have been for the last few years they still have no silverware to show for it. Winning this competition, which would be Pochettino's first trophy as a manager, would be a big step for the club.
Both managers also have the bonus of being able to blame any negative result on the ball tonight.
"It will be great, of course, for us to go through to the next round," Bilic has just told television viewers in his pre-game interview. As for the team selection he says: "We wanted to rest some players [ahead of "huge game" versus Crystal Palace on Saturday], but more to give some players a chance." He didn't look or sound particularly upbeat, but then again when does he?
One more stat - these two have met eight times before in this competition, with West Ham winning three times and Spurs also winning thrice. Two of those games were replays. The most recent meeting, in December 2013 at White Hart Lane, ended 2-1 to the Hammers.
Tottenham, on the other hand, have won the League Cup four times, most recently in 2008.
West Ham have never won this competition but did finish runners-up twice.
Bilic's is team selection is interesting. Given the pressure he's under and West Ham's poor form, you'd have thought he'd want to pick the strongest team possible given a win over local rivals - even if only in the cup - would buy him time, especially with the fans. Maybe nine changes gives him his strongest team, given how the side picked against Brighton fared, but it comes across more as him getting his excuses in early should they lose again tonight. 'Oh well, I didn't care about the cup anyway, just look how many changes I made.'
The two teams have already met once this season, at the London Stadium, where Tottenham won a typically bad-tempered encounter.
The visitors have one-upped Tottenham with nine changes. Of the team that lost 3-0 to Brighton, only Manuel Lanzini and Cheikhou Kouyate start tonight. Andy Carroll should be a good test for Foyth this evening.
Tottenham make eight changes to the team that started here against Liverpool on Sunday. Dele Alli, Toby Alderweireld and Heung-Min Son are the only survivors but most notable is that Danny Rose makes his first start since January, whilst there is also start for 19-year-old defender Juan Foyth.
Good evening and welcome to live coverage of the Tottenham Hotspur versus West Ham United. The League Cup is back at Wembley yet we're still two rounds around from the final, and if reports are to be believed Irons boss Slaven Bilic is only two games away from the sack, so this is a very important game. Team news is on the way...
