LONDON - Shock therapy failed to produce the desired result at Tottenham as Spurs conceded two goals in the last 10 minutes to bow out of the League Cup in the quarterfinals after a 2-1 defeat to West Ham on Wednesday.

In the first match since Andre Villas-Boas' dismissal on Monday — following a 5-0 home loss to Liverpool — interim manager Tim Sherwood made six changes as Emmanuel Adebayor enjoyed his first start of the season

Adebayor put Spurs in front with a spectacular volley but West Ham got back into the match when Modibo Maiga flicked the ball to Matt Taylor, who found Matt Jarvis before the winger scored with a clean finish in the 80th.

Maiga then leaped higher than Tottenham defenders five minutes from time and headed home past Lloris to silence the Spurs fans with his first goal of the season.

Manchester United was playing at Stoke in Wednesday's other quartefinal.
