Steven Bergwijn scored his first goal of the season and provided an assist to help Tottenham continue their momentum under Antonio Conte by beating West Ham to reach the Carabao Cup semi-finals.

The Netherlands forward broke the deadlock after 29 minutes and it was the catalyst for three goals in five minutes with Jarrod Bowen's equaliser quickly countered by Lucas Moura putting Spurs 2-1 ahead which is how it finished.

Victory helps Tottenham take another step towards ending their trophy drought dating back to 2008 and made it five wins under their new boss.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg was the creator with a smart pass into Bergwijn, which he received back inside the area and then returned the favour to allow the Dutch international to tap home in the 29th minute.

It was Bergwijn's first goal of the campaign and sparked a crazy five-minute spell with Tomas Soucek testing Lloris on two occasions and bringing out the best of the Frenchman who produced a couple of wonderful finger-tip saves in quick succession.

The Tottenham captain was helpless moments later though when Bowen did level after 32 minutes. Eric Dier was initially at fault with a slack ball out from the back and, after Manuel Lanzini's shot was controlled by Bowen, the ex-Hull attacker turned impressively before he rifled into the bottom corner for his fifth goal of the season.

Yet Moura had the final say on the half when Bergwijn, now full of confidence, skipped past Lanzini and squared for his fellow forward to stroke home from close range.

Match highlights

Assuming the tournament continues with two-legged ties, the second legs will take place the following week on Tuesday January 11 and Wednesday January 12.

Liverpool are into the semis!

21:56 , Marc Mayo

Jota nets after Kelleher again makes a save, and Liverpool have come from 3-1 down to knock Brendan Rodgers’ side out.

Well that was a nice little sojourn from the Tottenham game... Draw up shortly!

21:54 , Marc Mayo

Off the crossbar! Minamino smashes it too high and we still don’t know who the fourth team in the Carabao Cup semi-finals will be!

21:53 , Marc Mayo

Keita and Iheanacho score - so a successful penalty now from Minamino will put Liverpool in the semi-finals...

21:52 , Marc Mayo

Kelleher makes the save! Thomas is denied with a fine stop to the Irishman’s left and Leicester face going behind, with the shootout tied at 3-3 as Keita steps up.

21:49 , Marc Mayo

We’ve had four penalty kicks at Liverpool...

Firmino steps up to make it 2-2 with a stuttered run-up after Tielemans, Milner and Maddison netted.

21:46 , Marc Mayo

Tottenham will find out their semi-final opponents shortly...

Chelsea are through too, winning 2-0 at Brentford, but Liverpool and Leicester are off to penalties after a 3-3 draw after a late Minamino leveller.

21:40 , Marc Mayo

Tottenham are in the hat.

Full-time! Tottenham 2-1 West Ham

21:37 , Marc Mayo

90+3 mins: Areola is up and heads the corner into a danger area - but it’s held by Lloris and that’s the game!

21:36 , Marc Mayo

90+3 mins: Crossbar!

A looping cross from Yarmolenko, which took a deflection, rattles the bar with Lloris sprawling.

21:35 , Marc Mayo

90+2 mins: Out of play from Benrahma down the touchline, just as Tottenham fans raise the volume to push their team to the finish.

21:34 , Marc Mayo

90 mins: It’s just a bit tepid from West Ham as Tottenham expertly grind out this game, with only the three minutes added on.

21:31 , Marc Mayo

87 mins: Just the 81 per cent of possession for the Hammers in the past five minutes.

It’s largely been a good 35-40 yards from the Spurs goal, however.

21:29 , Marc Mayo

85 mins: Safe to say as we approach the final five minutes that it is pretty much all West Ham...

Elsewhere, Chelsea have broken through against Brentford to lead 2-0 with Liverpool now 3-2 down at home to Leicester.

21:26 , Marc Mayo

82 mins: Some final defensive reinforcements from Tottenham coming up as Royal and Tanganga prepare to come on.

Doherty and Reguilon are being replaced as Conte’s side continue to try and see out a 2-1 win.

21:24 , Marc Mayo

80 mins: Another whack from Benrahma...

Right across the face of goal on the volley, the winger sees his effort fly past the far-post.

It was Yarmolenko on for Ashby, as West Ham up the ante.

West Ham reporter Jack Rosser

21:23 , Marc Mayo

A very good showing from Ashby this evening. He struggled a bit early on but has really come into the game in the second-half and delivered some dangerous crosses from the right-hand side.

21:22 , Marc Mayo

79 mins: Benrahma is backing himself tonight, his latest hopeful attempt coming from 25 yards out and buzzing right into Lloris’ arms.

21:21 , Marc Mayo

77 mins: It’s Dele time, the midfielder replacing Skipp for some fresh legs in the middle of the park.

21:19 , Marc Mayo

75 mins: So, 15 minutes to go in this one. Tottenham are sitting in but remain a threat on the counter. West Ham have most of the ball but are yet to really do much with it this half.

Who can grab the vital next goal?

21:17 , Marc Mayo

73 mins: Chance!

Kane breaks into space and perhaps just overhits his pass to Son through on goal, whose first touch isn’t good enough and Masuaku covers to clear.

21:16 , Marc Mayo

71 mins: A bit of a goalmouth scramble with Tottenham perhaps sinking a little too deep, although able to avert any attempts on Lloris’ goal this time.

West Ham holding pretty much all of the ball in the past few minutes.

21:13 , Marc Mayo

69 mins: A quieter period in the game as Tottenham begin to settle in and see out the win a bit more, while their opponents are gently probing rather than throwing the kitchen sink at it.

The Hammers subs are now done, with Vlasic and Lanzini coming off. Benrahma’s first action is to swivel and fire a shot way over.

21:10 , Marc Mayo

66 mins: As Jack just predicted, Fornals and Benrahma are coming on for West Ham.

Five changes apiece tonight, so not much point in Moyes hanging about.

21:05 , Marc Mayo

62 mins: A big handball appeal from the home end as Masuaku diverts a Doherty cross, and the replay suggests it came off his chest. Just a reminder there is no VAR in this round of the tournament.

Tottenham reporter Dan Kilpatrick

21:04 , Marc Mayo

Bergwijn has taken his chance with a goal and an assist tonight, and you could see the confidence flowing through him in the second half. The Dutchman thoroughly deserves his standing ovation, while Lucas has also been impressive.

21:04 , Marc Mayo

60 mins: That’s all for Bergwijn, who has perhaps been Spurs’ main threat but is probably not fit for 90 minutes yet - this his first start under Conte.

Son is on, as is Winks for Moura.

West Ham reporter Jack Rosser

21:03 , Marc Mayo

West Ham have managed to camp Spurs in their own half for the last ten minutes or so but are still struggling when it comes to creating clear cut chances. You wonder whether Moyes will want to introduce Benrahma or Fornals soon.

21:02 , Marc Mayo

57 mins: Bowen almost sneaks in behind after a Lanzini lob over the top, and then Ashby gets his feet muddled in the box.

A bit of Hammers momentum building until Ashby goes down softly in the area. No dice.

Elsewhere, it’s still 3-1 to Leicester at Liverpool and James Maddison’s goal is absolutely worth a watch.

West Ham reporter Jack Rosser

21:00 , Marc Mayo

West Ham looking more confident on the ball now and create a good chance from Masuaku's cross. Rice is seeing more of the ball and higher up the pitch too which is always a good sign from a West Ham perspective.

20:57 , Marc Mayo

53 mins: Good again from the hosts as Doherty is fed down the right, his cross is turned in the air by Diop and strikes the arm of the unfortunate Moura.

20:56 , Marc Mayo

52 mins: That’s a great step-in from Johnson, the West Ham backline may be a new shape tonight but the youngster has played his rather fluid role well, and he comes out to repel a Moura pass as Spurs begin on the counter.

20:54 , Marc Mayo

50 mins: Skipp takes aim with a bouncing volley from 30 yards that cannons off Bergwijn and out of play - both sides starting on a more gentle boil this half.

20:52 , Marc Mayo

48 mins: More nice footwork from Bergwijn kicks off a one-two with Kane, but Rice is there to snatch the ball back.

The Dutchman has been showing his best work on his first start under Conte.

Kick-off! Tottenham 2-1 West Ham

20:49 , Marc Mayo

No changes as we get underway again.

20:46 , Marc Mayo

Not long until the second-half gets underway...

20:45 , Marc Mayo

Recap the opening goal of the game, a lovely run and pass by Hojbjerg of all people.

20:39 , Marc Mayo

Elsewhere in the Carabao Cup, Leicester lead Liverpool 3-1 at Anfield. James Maddison hit a pearler after a double from Jamie Vardy, and a reply from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

At Brentford, the other London derby of the night is goalless between the Bees and Chelsea.

West Ham reporter Jack Rosser

20:36 , Marc Mayo

David Moyes will be a little disappointed with what he's seen so far. They're usually rather solid at the back but the Hammers look so shaky here while going forward they've been too slow and indecisive.

Half-time! Tottenham 2-1 West Ham

20:33 , Marc Mayo

We have a proper see-saw cup tie on our hands!

Make sure you’re back for the second-half anything could happen in this one...

West Ham reporter Jack Rosser

20:31 , Marc Mayo

Moyes looks very frustrated with his side when they go forward. The Scot has been standing with his hands on his head as Masuaku drives forward but dithers over crossing. Decision making has not been too sharp so far.

20:31 , Marc Mayo

45 mins: Two minutes added on.

20:28 , Marc Mayo

42 mins: Bergwijn is a poor control away from another great opening in the West Ham area - just couldn’t open his body enough and Dawson deals with it.

20:26 , Marc Mayo

40 mins: Dare I say it... Things seem to have calmed down for a moment.

Are we all caught up?

20:23 , Marc Mayo

38 mins: Bowen booked for an off-the-ball clash that the fourth official alerted referee Chris Kavanagh to.

20:22 , Marc Mayo

36 mins: Nearly 2-2!

Goodness me... Soucek arrives at the far-post and a brilliant diversion from Skipp prevents him from rolling home another leveller.

GOAL! Tottenham 2-1 West Ham | Moura, 34'

20:20 , Marc Mayo

34 mins: They’re in front again!

Bergwijn does brilliantly down the right channel and his cross finds Moura for a simple finish.

Tottenham reporter Dan Kilpatrick

20:19 , Marc Mayo

A great response from West Ham but their equaliser was gift-wrapped by Dier. His poor pass out from the back was easily intercepted and Bowen’s feet were just too quick for him.

West Ham reporter Jack Rosser

20:19 , Marc Mayo

That's a superb response from West Ham. Immediately from the restart they were testing Lloris again and have now drawn level. Superb footwork from Bowen to take Vlasic's mishit shot under control, turn and finish past Lloris.

GOAL! Tottenham 1-1 West Ham | Bowen, 30'

20:18 , Marc Mayo

30 mins: And we’re level!

20:17 , Marc Mayo

30 mins: Bit of an onslaught from the Hammers...

Again it’s Soucek with the header that Lloris, backpedalling, has to palm over his bar.

The corner evades the goalkeeper and finds Dawson - who heads wide!

20:16 , Marc Mayo

29 mins: Save!

West Ham right up the other end and Soucek’s fine header is well saved by Lloris!

GOAL! Tottenham 1-0 West Ham | Bergwijn, 28'

20:14 , Marc Mayo

28 mins: The breakthrough from the Dutchman!

20:14 , Marc Mayo

27 mins: A bit of a lull in proceedings that the hosts try to liven up with another Moura ball into Kane, which is cut out by the West Ham defensive pack.

Kane can still work a shot from range, also blocked.

20:09 , Marc Mayo

23 mins: Nothing doing as the two-man wall can block the free-kick.

20:08 , Marc Mayo

22 mins: Doherty looks to have missed his chance to cross against Masuaku but a neat flick earns a wayward foot from the Hammers man and Spurs are well set up for another set-piece chance...

West Ham reporter Jack Rosser

20:05 , Marc Mayo

After a very scrappy start from both sides West Ham are starting to put some pressure on their hosts with a spell of possession and a number of set pieces.

Lacking the presence of Antonio, Soucek is pushing higher up than usual tonight to give those behind him something to aim for in the box.

20:04 , Marc Mayo

18 mins: A bit more from West Ham now but Vlasic cannot get the shot away before defenders can block him off.

20:01 , Marc Mayo

16 mins: Lloris is forced to parry a whipped free-kick from Bowen that went through the crowd from wide on the right.

The Hammers then repel a Tottenham counter.

Tottenham reporter Dan Kilpatrick

20:00 , Marc Mayo

Lucas just casually channelled Kevin de Bruyne with that stunning pass for Kane's chance. The Brazilian will be feeling the competition for places at Spurs after the way Dele and Ndombele played on Sunday.

19:58 , Marc Mayo

13 mins: Spurs on top here as Reguilon has the space to cross from the left, but it’s overhit and they have to come again after Masuaku lays a pass out of play.

19:57 , Marc Mayo

11 mins: Save!

Areola is equal to a powerful shot from Kane after a lovely release by Moura.

Meanwhile, Leicester lead at Liverpool courtesy of a Vardy goal.

19:55 , Marc Mayo

8 mins: Rice winds up for a big free-kick from well over 30 yards out and it lands somewhere in Hertfordshire. A big cheer from the home crowd.

Tottenham reporter Dan Kilpatrick

19:53 , Marc Mayo

You feel that Doherty and Bergwijn have to take their chance to impress Conte tonight if they want to stay at Spurs. Both players are facing uncertain futures but as Dele and Winks proved on Sunday it's not too late to start changing minds.

19:52 , Marc Mayo

6 mins: Bergwijn does well to work a yard and pings an effort into Dawson, which ricochets for a corner.

19:49 , Marc Mayo

3 mins: Moura tripped by Soucek, a first promising position for Tottenham - just under 30 yards out with Dier over the ball.

West Ham reporter Jack Rosser

19:48 , Marc Mayo

It looks as if Johnson is tucking in to form a back three with Ashby and Masuaku as wing backs for West Ham. Johnson has always been versatile but this is a new one.

19:48 , Marc Mayo

2 mins: And an immediate break with Hojbjerg having a bloodied nose and needing a change of shirt.

Kick-off! Tottenham 0-0 West Ham

19:46 , Marc Mayo

And we’re off, who will qualify for the final four?

19:43 , Marc Mayo

Here come the players!

19:42 , Marc Mayo

Antonio Conte was effusive in his praise of Son Heung-min in the build-up to tonight’s game, with the Korean on the bench.

“We are talking about a really world-class player,” he told reporters. “I have seen him before becoming manager of Tottenham only on TV. He impressed me a lot. But when you have the possibility to train him and become his coach, you can see really the quality of this player.

“It’s fantastic because he had quality but also run, intensity, the resilience also, and I think that Sonny is a top player. Not a good player – a top player.

“For sure I try to improve him, to help him, but we are talking about a player that is now already at an important level.”

19:41 , Marc Mayo

Not long to wait!

19:37 , Marc Mayo

David Moyes provides a Michail Antonio update on Sky Sports: “Antonio tested positive last week, probably about a week ago now so we’re closer to getting him back but obviously not available tonight.

“With testing every day there’s uncertainty like every other team but I have to say, at the moment we’ve been pretty good with Covid.”

19:34 , Marc Mayo

Can West Ham make it three in a row tonight?

The Hammers have won both their last two trips to Tottenham for League Cup ties - coming from two goals down at Wembley in 2017 for a fourth-round victory.

In fact, their last trip to the final four came after a quarter-final win in North London, courtesy of late goals from Matt Jarvis and Modibo Maiga.

19:28 , Marc Mayo

Manuel Lanzini is one player hoping to land another blow on Tottenham tonight.

The midfielder scored a wonder goal in the last minute of their 3-3 draw in their most recent meeting at Spurs’ home.

Speaking to Standard Sport before the clash, he said: "It’s understandable because people always remember those important moments and this was one of those nicest moments we saw that year.

“In a difficult year with lots of complications; because there were no people in the stadium, because of Covid, because of so many things. People remember this goal really well.

“It’s always nice to play games like this, they’re the derbies. It’s fun to play them, especially after the goal that I scored. Hopefully it can be another one like that. It’s an important one for us, for the team.”

19:24 , Marc Mayo

More from Conte, on his team selection: “I think this is a period where we have to try to manage the situation and also to make changes. Because don't forget we're facing Covid problems and for this reason I have to try to manage very well game by game.

“Go game by game and give the people affected with Covid the right to recover. But our formation is good, we're working very well and we're ready.”

19:22 , Marc Mayo

Antonio Conte confirms no players are out with Covid-19 tonight, only the injured duo Ryan Sessegnon and Cristian Romero.

He tells Sky Sports: “For us, every game is important but now I think Tottenham must try to work, to build a good foundation to be stronger than now in the future.”

When is the Carabao Cup semi-final draw?

19:20 , Marc Mayo

The draw for the semi-finals of the 2021/22 Carabao Cup takes place on Wednesday December 22, following the quarter-final clash between Tottenham and West Ham.

The draw is available to watch live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Football from 9:30pm.

The first legs of the semi-final ties are due to be played on Tuesday January 4 and Wednesday January 5.

Assuming the tournament continues with two-legged ties, the second legs will take place the following week on Tuesday January 11 and Wednesday January 12.

19:14 , Marc Mayo

David Moyes was keen to focus on the positives ahead of the quarter-final tie, with West Ham on a bit of a dip of late.

“There are a lot of things going into Christmas where we’re in a good place, but like everybody else at this time of the season, we’ve all got injuries,” he said. “We’re no different from any other club, and that plays its part.

“We’ll go into every game with the intention of trying to win it and get a result, and we’ll do that against Tottenham.

“You want to keep winning. You want to keep a level of momentum going. If we could get ourselves through this round of the Cup, it would be a big step for us again.

“I think that we’re more than capable, but we’re also up against a good side at the moment as well, so we understand that.”

Breaking news!

19:08 , Marc Mayo

Michail Antonio will miss West Ham's Carabao Cup quarter-final against Tottenham after testing positive for Covid-19.

Hammers manager David Moyes confirmed on Tuesday that two members of staff had tested positive for coronavirus and that players were among those diagnosed.

More here...

19:03 , Marc Mayo

Meanwhile Tottenham have rested Son Heung-min as Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Lucas Moura return. A strong side from Antonio Conte.

19:00 , Marc Mayo

A move to a back five, it looks like then for West Ham, with Michail Antonio unavailable.

The Hammers line-up is out...

18:51 , Marc Mayo

West Ham XI: Areola; Johnson, Ashby, Dawson, Diop, Masuaku; Rice, Soucek; Vlasic, Lanzini; Bowen.

Subs: Randolph, Baptiste, Alese, Fredericks, Kral, Noble, Fornals, Benrahma, Yarmolenko.

How the hosts line up...

18:50 , Marc Mayo

Tottenham XI: Lloris; Sanchez, Dier, Davies; Doherty, Skipp, Hojbjerg, Reguilon; Bergwijn, Lucas, Kane.

Subs: Gollini, Royal, Rodon, Tanganga, Winks, Lo Celso, Ndombele, Dele, Son.

18:41 , Marc Mayo

Meanwhile, in the Liverpool game Jurgen Klopp has made TEN changes - including young Billy Koumetio in for a debut at centre-back.

Will we see something similar from one of these two teams?

18:34 , Marc Mayo

Team news coming shortly...

18:30 , Marc Mayo

It’s a big night in the Carabao Cup!

Chelsea make the short trip to Brentford, which you can follow here, and Leicester face Liverpool elsewhere tonight.

Evening Standard prediction: Spurs on spot-kicks

18:17 , Marc Mayo

This looks a difficult game to call - West Ham’s run in this competition has had a feeling of destiny about it, but Tottenham are coming off what may well be looked back on as a landmark result under Antonio Conte in their draw with Liverpool.

Tottenham to win on penalties.

18:08 , Marc Mayo

How to watch

18:02 , Marc Mayo

TV channel: The match will be televised on Sky Sports Football and Main Event.

Live stream: Sky Sports subscribers will be able to watch the match online via the Sky Go app.

17:57 , Marc Mayo

West Ham predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Areola; Johnson, Dawson, Diop, Masuaku; Rice, Soucek; Vlasic, Lanzini, Benrahma; Bowen.

17:53 , Marc Mayo

Tottenham predicted XI (3-5-2): Lloris; Sanchez, Dier, Rodon; Doherty, Skipp, Winks, Dele, Reguilon; Lucas, Kane.

Here’s the early team news...

17:48 , Marc Mayo

Tottenham returned to action after their Covid-enforced lay-off on Sunday and showed few signs of rustiness as they earned a 2-2 draw against Liverpool.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg missed that game and is a doubt, while Cristian Romero is a longer-term absence with a thigh problem. Aside from that, Antonio Conte has a healthy squad from which to choose.

West Ham’s defensive injury crisis has been exacerbated by Vladimir Coufal’s suspension following his red card against Arsenal, while the struggling Michail Antonio could be rested.

Good evening!

17:45 , Marc Mayo

What a mouthwatering Carabao Cup quarter-final we have in store for you tonight... Buckle up!
