The Carabao Cup isn’t exactly famed for producing high-octane, full-blooded contests but Tottenham’s meeting with West Ham this evening should have some needle about it.
There’s plenty of bad blood between the two London rivals and the hatred appears to have intensified over the last two seasons, the Hammers securing wins in east London that played a significant hand in ending Spurs’ title bids.
But West Ham are by no means Tottenham’s only bitter rivals. Of course, their historic enemy is north London neighbours Arsenal, while there’s plenty of ill-feeling towards Chelsea as well – something that also appears to have increased in recent years due to their shared title ambitions.
With that in mind, we asked Tottenham fans earlier this week which London rival they hate more – Chelsea or West Ham – and according to our poll, the vast majority feel greater dislike towards the reigning Premier League champions.
