Jose Mourinho is hoping to move one step closer towards securing his first title as a Tottenham Hotspur manager when his team faces Brentford in the semi-final of the Carabao Cup this afternoon at 2:45.

Following a four-game winless streak in the Premier League, the Lilywhites bounced back to winning ways in their recent clash with Leeds United, which should give them the confidence needed heading into this game.

Tottenham haven’t been at their best in recent weeks following a tremendous start to the campaign. 

And they could consider themselves lucky to have avoided playing either Manchester United or Manchester City in the semi-finals.

Though it is also fair to point out that the Lilywhites have performed well above expectations against the top-quality opponents in the Premier League, this season.

Meanwhile, despite losing two of their best players in Ollie Watkins and Said Benrahma to premier league teams in the off-season, the Bees have enjoyed a dream start to the campaign. 

They are already one of the favourites to gain promotion to the top-flight next season.

Though that shouldn’t deter them from going all out in this cup fixture as Thomas Frank looks to land the first competitive trophy in the club’s history.
