Chelsea and Tottenham to win in Carabao Cup, predicts Charlie Nicholas

Charlie Nicholas provides us with his predictions for Wednesday night's Carabao Cup fourth-round action...
Here's what he is predicting for the clashes...
Tottenham v West Ham (Wednesday from 7.30pm, live on Sky Sports Football)
This could be a feisty one - but I only see one outcome. Mauricio Pochettino impressively exposed Liverpool's vulnerabilities on Sunday and their confidence must be sky high.
This is a good chance to sit Harry Kane, who will hopefully need to rest his hamstring until after the Arsenal game! Fernando Llorente will come in again and Dele Alli will get another game after missing quite a few, meaning Spurs still have plenty of attacking quality.
What does Slaven Billic do? If he plays a strong team, they could still be embarrassed. I'm a fan of Bilic but this is a really average group of players. He's partly responsible but I don't think you should judge him on a match like this.
Charlie predicts: 3-0 and Dele Alli to score first (28/1 with Sky Bet)
Chelsea v Everton (Wednesday, 7.45pm)
Do Everton rest players or try to build something here? I think they are just going to Stamford Bridge looking to avoid embarrassment.
Chelsea aren't playing well at all, though. While Antonio Conte clearly doesn't fancy Michy Batshuayi, he needs him right now and I think the Belgian striker will inflict yet another defeat on the Toffees.
Charlie predicts: 2-0 and Michy Batshuayi to score first (14/1 with Sky Bet)
