Nuno Espirito Santo will look to revive his struggling Spurs team this evening when they travel to Turf Moor.

A 1-0 loss to West Ham made it back-to-back defeats after the manager rested his favorite starting XI for the loss at Vitesse a few days earlier, which raised big questions about who will play against Burnley.

The Clarets hope to reach the Carabao Cup quarter-finals for the first time since 2008/09, when as a league club they were knocked out of the semi-finals by Tottenham.

Spurs have been a bit of a bogey club for Burnley lately, taking nine wins and four draws in their last 14 meetings.

A 2-2 draw at Southampton this weekend sends Sean Dyche’s side into that game in difficult form, with just one win in 90 minutes throughout the campaign and still without a league win.

Live updates


Tottenham predicted XI: Gollini; Tanganga, Sanchez, Romero, Reguilon; Lo Celso, Skipp; Bergwijn, Ndombele, Gil; Kane.


Nuno gave his second string a chance to impress Arnhem and they failed to grab it, but with a crucial Manchester United encounter coming up this weekend he may not be too keen to align a full training either.

A hybrid squad is the most likely alternative, although both Dele Alli and Harry Winks have both been left out of the squad, raising further doubts about their respective Spurs futures.

Matt Doherty is set to return, but Ryan Sessegnon remains out.


How to watch

The match will not be shown live on UK television.

However, highlights are available on Quest starting at 10:30 p.m. BST.


Have a good evening!

Welcome to another huge game for Tottenham from Nuno Espirito Santo as they travel to Burnley in the Carabao Cup.

It might not be the most important competition for either team, but neither would say no a trophy, nor a vital victory after tough form spells.

Team news is expected in about an hour and we will keep you updated on all pre-game events in advance.
