West Ham 4 Burnley 2

This photo taken by the AFP shows Tottenham Hotspur's South Korean forward Son Heung-Min celebrating his goal during the English League Cup football match between West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur at London Stadium in east London on October 31, 2018.

Chris Wood levelled the tie-up once again ten minutes later before the Brazil global added his second of the game five minutes from time.

Hernandez wrapped things up on the break in stoppage time to end a run of four matches without a win.

Steven Defour escaped unpunished when appearing to trip the lively Grady Diangana in the area, and Burnley capitalised on the stroke of half-time - Gudmundsson producing a neat finish when played through by Ashley Westwood. After that we made mistakes.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche responded with the late introduction of forwards Robbie Brady and Chris Wood, and the pair combined for Wood to head Burnley level.

But Burnley were unable to hold on, Anderson getting his second in the 84th minute, squeezing an effort past Hart after Mee blocked Arnautovic's initial shot.

"I owe a lot of thanks to Poch for where I am at the minute in my career". They were not great defensively, however.

While the EFL Cup shapes as arguably Tottenham's best chance to win a first trophy since 2008, Pochettino said the welfare of his players was the priority.

It was Diangana's fourth successive start for the Hammers and Pellegrini feels the 20-year-old has been able to handle the pressure well.

Tottenham Hotspur's South Korean attacker Son Heung-min has ended his scoring drought this season after netting two goals against West Ham United.

With just 48 hours between this game and their defeat to Premier League title rivals Manchester City, Pochettino had little choice but to make wholesale changes.

Burnley have now lost their last three matches, shipping 13 goals in the process. In the build-up to the game, Manuel Pellegrini called on Anderson to show more, saying he was "not happy" with the contribution of West Ham's record signing.
