Tottenham v Chelsea: Carabao Cup fourth round – live!
Carabao Cup updates from the 7.45pm BST kick-offLive scoreboard: the latest from Tuesday’s games in EuropeAnd you can get in touch with Simon by email or Twitter 6.39pm BST Squad news should be incoming in a couple of minutes, but word on the street is that Tottenham are actually going to field a pretty strong team.

Instead here Spurs are, stuck in a competition they can’t compete in, playing a game they don’t need, just 48 hours before Maccabi Haifa turn up for a probably-more-important-on-balance Europa League play-off, with an also-more-important-on-balance league match against Manchester United to follow at the weekend.“I would like to fight for the Carabao but I don’t think I can,” scowled Jose Mourinho. “The group phase of the Europa League gives us a certain amount of money that for a club like us is very important. I think the EFL made a decision for us. They didn’t even create a problem - they made a decision. So that’s the decision.” Continue reading...
