Hart handed start for Hammers

England goalkeeper Joe Hart will start for West Ham in their League Cup quarter-final against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Hart, who is on a season-long loan from Manchester City, has been left on the bench for the last four matches, with Adrian impressing as the Hammers picked up seven points from a possible nine in their last three Premier League outings.

He's been very good around the place and he's ready to play.

However, Hart will get an opportunity to shine on Tuesday, with Irons manager David Moyes switching things around as much is possible, with a few injuries affecting his selection.

Moyes told reporters at his pre-match press conference: "Joe Hart will definitely start tomorrow night. He's been very good around the place and he's ready to play."

Striker Andy Carroll may also feature although he remains a slight doubt due to a back problem.

"Andy Carroll could return," Moyes added. "He's had a bad back, but he trained today and we will make a call on him tomorrow.

"Ideally we would have changed one or two players, but we're a bit short. Our priority is the Premier League, but nothing would give me more pleasure than reaching a cup final."

Less than a week ago the Hammers held Arsenal to a goalless league draw at the London Stadium, while the league meeting of the two sides at the Emirates last season ended in a 3-0 win for the hosts.

West Ham are available at 11/4 to reach the League Cup semi-finals and are 16/1 to win 1-0 in 90 minutes on Tuesday, while they are 1212/1 to go all the way and win the tournament for the first time in their history.
