West Ham Utd 1-3 Tottenham Hotspur

West Ham will have to wait until 2019 for another crack at the Carabao Cup after Tottenham won the battle of the reserves in Stratford tonight.

The Hammers - who have featured in the final but have never won the competition - included just four players to have started five Premier League games or more this season as they went down to an equally under-strength Spurs.

Michail Antonio endured a frustrating night as West Ham tumbled out of the Carabao Cup

Son Heung-min scored the first goal of the night with 16 minutes played after Angelo Ogbonna, restored to the starting XI for the night conceded possession cheaply in West Ham's final third.

The visitors' lead was doubled nine minutes after the half time interval, again through Son, who took advantage of more lax defending from West Ham - on this occasion by Arthur Masuaku - before rounding Adrian and slotting into an empty net.

Hammers hopes were given a boost when Lucas Perez nodded a centre beyond Argentinian goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga to halve the deficit and leave West Ham just one goal from forcing a penalty shootout.

But any such aspirations were extinguished four minutes later and mere seconds after the game had been interrupted - for a second time - by a pitch invader; Ogbonna once again at fault allowing Fernando Llorente to hook a corner into the back of Adrian's net from close range.

Tottenham's reward for winning tonight's battle of the second strings is a clash with north London rivals Arsenal.
