Tottenham Hotspur haven’t won a trophy in almost 15 years at this point and it feels as though their best opportunity to get some silverware is in the Carabao Cup.
Indeed, Spurs are on the brink of reaching the quarter-finals of the League Cup and they have a rather straightforward task in the fourth round.
The London club face Burnley on Wednesday evening, and with all due respect to the Clarets, this is really a game Tottenham should be able to win.
However, Spurs do need to have one eye on this weekend’s game against Manchester United, so they may want to rotate a little bit here.
With that in mind, we’ve had a go at predicting Spurs’ starting Xi for this one.
We think that Nuno Espirito Santo will make six changes for this match.
Pierluigi Gollini comes in between the sticks, while Japhet Tanganga, Ben Davies and Davinson Sanchez join Eric Dier in the back four.
Dele Alli and Giovani Lo Celso come in for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Tanguy Ndombele.
Lucas Moura and Heung-Min Son drop out as Steven Bergwijn and Bryan Gil come in.
Harry Kane starts up front as Spurs’ talisman looks to play his way into a bit of form after another poor showing against West Ham at the weekend.
