It’s time to hit the pause button on the Premier League for a week or so as we determine who will play in the 2021 Carabao Cup Final later this year. The Manchester derby semi-final is bound to draw a lot of interest from fans and pundits alike over the next few days, but we’d like to take a look at the other part of the equation – Tottenham Hotspur vs Brentford. In a classic Prem vs Championship clash, these two teams will attempt to move within one win of capturing the trophy when they meet in North London.

Tottenham

Despite all of the drama that comes with having Jose Mourinho as your manager, there’s still a layer of optimism within Tottenham Hotspur Football Club right now. They probably aren’t going to take over the Premier League as the division’s dominant force anytime soon, but if they’re smart, then they shouldn’t be aiming for that. Instead, they have to position themselves as a side with the potential to grow into something so much more.

Team News

Lamela will not be available for selection and the following players are also out through injury in this vital game – Lo Celso, Tanganga and Bale.

Brentford

After failing to gain promotion last season many fans decided to write Brentford off as a side that would never quite be able to reach the big time. Now, though, they’re two wins away from an incredible cup win and they’re also gearing up to make another push for automatic promotion. That’s a testament to the resilience of this club and in the immediate future, you’d have to imagine they have some major success on the horizon.

Team News

The expectation is hat the Bees will have their starting possible starting XI available for what is one of the biggest games in their recent history. However, that doesn’t mean they aren’t without their own injuries, as the following players are all set to miss out: Rasmussen, Baptiste and Nørgaard.

Factors to Consider

  • Tottenham have beaten Chelsea & Stoke in the Carabao Cup so far whereas Brentford have beaten Wycombe, Southampton, West Brom, Fulham and Newcastle.
  • Tottenham have won two, drawn two and lost two of their last six games.
  • Brentford have won five and drawn one of their last six games.
  • Tottenham have scored nine goals and conceded seven in their last six games.
  • Brentford have scored 13 goals and conceded six in their last six games.

Conclusion

Brentford have done phenomenally well to beat four Premier League sides on their road to the semis, but we think this is where their campaign is going to run out of steam. Spurs are desperate to secure some silverware and while the Carabao Cup may not often be viewed as the most attractive trophy you can win in English football, Jose Mourinho needs some good news. Therefore, we’re backing them to book their place at Wembley courtesy of a 2-0 win.
