Vladimir Coufal will be included in the West Ham squad for their trip to Tottenham Hotspur in the EFL Cup quarter-final.

The Czech Republic international will be eligible to play, despite being sent off against Arsenal during the Hammers 2-0 defeat reports Football.London.

West Ham were looking to appeal the red card that was brandished following two supposed fouls on Kieran Tierney and Alexander Lacazette but were unable to.

Clubs are only allowed to appeal straight reds rather than two yellow cards, even when they result in a sending off.

Coufal was due to miss the Hammers Premier League clash with
Norwich on Saturday before it was postponed due to COVID cases in the Canaries
squad.

The Czech’s suspension will now be delayed until the next round of fixtures, which will be against Southampton on Boxing Day.

Time needed.

This does allow West Ham extra time in finding a replacement for Coufal with the right back position causing David Moyes some problems.

Although, youngster Ben Johnson could just make it back in
time as looks to be fit for to return on Boxing Day after a sensational start to
the season.

A first Premier League start could be in line for Scotland
U21, Harrison Ashby, if Johnson fails to return in time. Ashby made his Premier
League debut from the bench versus Arsenal after and impressing in the Europa
League against Dinamo Zagreb.
