Sebastien Haller and Andriy Yarmolenko are said to be threats to Everton.

PRT: Predicted score and outcome of the match

"I would love it if West Ham won and took the League Cup seriously this year. If the team performs as they did against Wolves, then there is no reason as to why the Hammers can’t knock Everton out of the cup. Having said that Everton have looked very good this season and should be the favorites to progress into the Quarterfinals. Overall, I think there will be plenty of goals as both teams are very good going forward and are shaky defensively. It would not surprise me if the game went to penalties after a score draw. SCORE: 2-2 – West Ham to win on penalties"

PRT: Who do you think will be the most threatening West Ham player and why?

"It may not only be one player but a combination of the front three of Yarmolenko, Anderson and Haller. The three have started playing with a chemistry that fans expected to see them produce in the League. But the key man will probably be Yarmolenko. The Ukrainian scored a 10/10 rating from WhoScored in the previous round and if he carries on at that level then Yarmolenko will cause Everton problems."

PRT: Which Everton player are you most worried about and why?

"If he plays then it has to James Rodriguez. The Columbian is an unbelievable signing for the Toffees, he has already shown why he was rated among the best players in the world a couple of years ago. James’ passing range and creativity could be key in unlocking the Hammers defense."

PRT: Which will be the key battle on the field?

"The key battle will be James Rodriguez and whoever is marking him, most likely Mark Noble or Jack Wilshere. If one of our Englishman can keep him quiet then it will make the West Ham defenses job a whole lot easier."
