Tottenham booked their place in the Carabao Cup quarterfinals after beating rivals West Ham 3-1 at the London Stadium as Son Heung-Min returned to form, picking up a brace.

Mauricio Pochettino made ten changes to the playing XI that had lost 1-0 to Manchester City a couple of days ago and he’d be quite chuffed with the team’s quality display, showing the depth in his squad.

A couple of youngsters too got an opportunity to feature for the first time this season and arguably the most impressive of them was Juan Foyth.

The 20-year-old was an assured presence at the heart of the visitors’ defence and did a brilliant job against the likes of Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic.

Apart from looking strong and assured with the ball, the Argentine youngster also went on to make a series of last-ditch interventions, including a stunning sliding tackle on Arnautovic inside the penalty area.

That strong challenge from the 6 feet 3 inches tall Foyth and his overall composure in the match reminded one of Tottenham’s legendary defender Ledley King, who was among of the best in the world during his heydays.
