The early round of League Cup will definitely see some changes from West Ham head coach Manuel Pellegrini.
Club captain Mark Noble missed Saturday’s defeat to Arsenal because of the back injury left, he is expected not to play any part in this match.
Meanwhile, last season’s record signing Marco Aunoutovic hobbled off the pitch against Arsenal, so he is questionable for this clash.
Michail Antonio was another high-profile casualty at the Emirates. He suffered an ankle injury and will be assessed ahead of Tuesday.
Adrian is expected to start between the sticks for the Premiership side, while Andriy Yarmolenko will hope for a start after coming off from the bench in the past three matches. Javier Hernandez and Lucas Perez are in contention for a start up front, while Aaron Cresswell could come in at left-back.
Andy Carroll (ankle), and Winston Reid (knee) remain sidelined with long-term injuries.
For the League One side, AFC Wimbledon, there are no concerns in the injury and suspension department and all the big guns are available for selection.
