When David Moyes was first in charge in east London he steered the Hammers to the quarter finals of the competition before they were beaten by Arsenal in north London and how the manager and fans would love a decent cup run this year.
Moyes is expected to make some changes to the side that was beaten in the Premier League at the weekend, giving some youngsters and some fringe players the chance to show what they can do and try to force their way into the Premier League team.
Youngsters Xande Silva, Mipo Odubeko, Jamal Baptiste, Ajibola Alese and Conor Coventry were not included in the under-23’s PL2 opener against Chelsea on Monday and could be in line for a squad place in E20 on Tuesday.
We will have all the build up, match action and post-match reaction live from London Stadium throughout the evening, with kick off set for 7.30pm in Stratford this evening.
