- West Ham United came from behind to defeat Tottenham Hotspurs in the all London tie.
West Ham United have earned a surprise victory over Tottenham in the Carabao cup on Wednesday night.
behind early on in the game, West Ham had to fight back for a hard earned victory over their London rivals.
The hammers boss Slaven Bilic believes that this cup victory over local rivals Tottenham Hotspurs will give the club the required motivation to produce better performances going forward this season.
"It can give us a lot of confidence, but only to do the same in training, to do the same on Friday, on Saturday,'' said Hammers boss Bilic.
"We have to use this opportunity to work hard. We have two days before Palace, it's not ideal but the win gives you energy, gives you freshness.
"Now tomorrow at the training ground nobody is going to feel tired, from the impact of our result, from beating them.''
West Ham lacked confidence and purpose in the first half against their London rivals but Ayew twice took advantage of poor defending to pull his side level.
Bilic said his players have now set the standard they must maintain.
"Other than Brighton, we improved a lot in the last six games,'' Bilic said. "This should be the standard for us in terms of closing down, in terms of sacrificing for the team.
"Some games we may lose, but I am quite positive we are improving.''
