Tottenham progressed through to the quarter finals of the Carabao cup after getting the better of West Ham at the Olympic stadium.

Two goals from Son on either side of the half gave the visitors a two goal cushion before Llorente turned in an Eriksen corner to seal the the tie 3-1 for the visitors.

While Pochettino rotated his squad to rest his top players, the Argentine still fielded a strong line-up against the Hammers and should be pretty content with the performances from some of his younger fringe players with the likes of Paulo Gazzaniga and Juan Foyth capitalizing on the opportunity with solid displays.

Not involved from the start but brought on to see the tie off, Moussa Sissoko didn’t have a lot of time to assert his authority on the game and wasn’t talked about in same breath as some of the other on field for the tie but still managed to leave an impression in the short while he was involved.

Surging forward during a late move, the versatile midfielder conjured one of the passes of the game and brilliantly found fellow substitute N’Koudou in the box with perfection and was unlucky not to register an assist with his teammate narrowly missing the target from close range.
