Tottenham vs. Hull City: Date, Time, Live Stream, TV Info and Preview

Rob Goldberg@TheRobGoldbergFeatured ColumnistOctober 30, 2013

After Tottenham defeated Hull City 1-0 in Sunday's Premier League match, the two sides will meet against on Wednesday in Round 4 in the Capital One Cup.

Tottenham have been one of the top clubs in the EPL this season despite the transfer of Gareth Bale. Roberto Soldado has taken over much of the scoring responsibilities, while the defense has stepped up to allow only five goals in nine matches.

On the other hand, Hull have performed well in their first season in the Premier League, although the offense has certainly slowed down in recent weeks. The club only has one goal in the last three matches with only a draw to show for it.

They will have to come through with a better performance in this match if they want to move onto the next round of the League Cup.

When: Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 3:45 p.m. ET; 7:45 p.m. BST

Where: White Hart Lane, London, England

Watch: Not available on TV

Live Stream: NBC Sports Live Extra

Odds (via SkyBet): Tottenham (1-3), Hull City (8-1), Draw (4-1)

Top Storyline: What Type of Lineup Will Andre Villas-Boas Utilize?

Tottenham could be a top contender for this year's League Cup, but it comes down to whether the club wants to compete for the trophy.

With numerous competitive league matches upcoming, as well as the Europa League group stage, Andre Villas-Boas might want to save his best players and keep them out of this match.

That being said, there are still plenty of talented youngsters who can contribute at a high level. Players like Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela can use this contest to continue improving and try to earn more first-team opportunities. 

Still, Tottenham can feel a lot more confident in this match with a full lineup of stars.

Prediction: Tottenham 1, Hull City 0

Spurs allowed three goals in a surprising defeat against West Brom earlier in the month, but since then, the defense has been incredible. The squad has not allowed a goal in three matches, and it did not allow Hull to even get many opportunities in the last outing.

On the other hand, Hull have been one of the worst offensive clubs in the league. They have two wins at the Capital One Cup to this point, but each was only 1-0 against inferior opponents.

Even with a full lineup, the road team will not have an easy time getting scoring chances in this matchup, and even scoring one goal would be a surprise.

Tottenham should be able to get at least one into the back of the net to secure a victory and a spot in the tournament's quarterfinals.
