Tottenham v Brentford
- Jose Mourinho holds the League Cup in high regard and will certainly go with his strongest available XI here.
- The Tottenham manager has confirmed Erik Lamela will not be considered for selection on Tuesday, with Gareth Bale, Japhet Tanganga and Giovani Lo Celso also unavailable
- Potentially 90 minutes away from the League Cup final, Championship side Brentford will go with their best available XI against Tottenham on Tuesday.
Jose Mourinho says Tuesday’s Carabao Cup semi-final against Brentford is the biggest game he has faced since taking charge of Tottenham.
Mourinho, appointed in November 2019, is hoping to lead Spurs to their first major trophy since 2008.
“After more than one decade, every competition becomes more important – and if we win two matches, we win a trophy,” Mourinho said.
The Portuguese manager has previously won the competition four times.
It provided him with his first trophy in English football at Chelsea in 2005 and he won it twice more with them before a further success as Manchester United manager in 2017.
Asked if this was the most important game of his tenure so far, Mourinho said: “In the perspective of the club chasing silverware for many years, I would say so.
“Of course, we always have important matches – last season we had a match at Crystal Palace that would give us participation in this season’s Europa League or not.
“The match against Leeds [last Saturday] was very important as we went a few games without a victory in the Premier League. But I would say a semi-final is always a very important match. The only one more important is a final.”
Mourinho is bidding to become the third manager to reach an EFL Cup final with three different clubs.
And should Spurs overcome the Bees, they will face either Manchester City or his former employers United next.
