West Ham boss Allardyce expects Spurs Cup backlash

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce expects a backlash from Capital One Cup opponents Tottenham tonight.

Allardyce reckons Spurs will be eager to prove themselves against the Hammers because it was their fault Andre Villas-Boas lost his job.

He said: "Do players get managers the sack? Yes. If you're talking about Tottenham there will be a reaction on a ­professional level to the defeat against Liverpool.

"They are proud professionals. They'll want to put it right."
