BURNLEY 0-0 SPURS
4. Spurs cut the hosts wide open!
On the break, Lo Celso plays a perfectly-weighted pass between Mee and Collins, and Kane is on to it in a flash.
It's the kind of opportunity that we've grown used to seeing the England captain make easy but he gets it all wrong here, dragging his shot away and wide of goal.

BURNLEY 0-0 SPURS
3. Sanchez chooses not to take charge of a long punt forward from Pope, and it almost – almost – allows Vydra a route in on goal.
That could have been an early blunder in front of Spurs' large travelling contingent.

BURNLEY 0-0 SPURS
1. The players take the knee, and then it's Tottenham – in their flamboyant multicoloured away shirts – that get the cup tie underway.
Burnley, in contrast, like to keep it simple. Claret, blue and 4-4-2 all the way.

HERE COME THE TEAMS!
It's a damp and dreary night at Turf Moor, but it's those kind of evenings that can make for the most memorable.
The two teams arrive on the pitch together, having entered from opposite corners of the stadium, and gather for the pre-match formalities.

The players are back in the dressing rooms for their final instructions, and the action is just minutes away.
What an opportunity this evening's contest presents, not just in terms of the quarter-final place that awaits the winners, but the game time for a whole host of fringe players too.

SON THE SUB
Son Heung-min has been Spurs' standout performer this season, making up for the shortcomings of some of his attacking teammates.
However, there's no place for the South Korean in Nuno Espirito Santo's starting line-up this evening despite his fine record in the League Cup.
Son has been directly involved in six goals in his last six starts in the competition, netting four goals and laying on two assists.
Will the forward be needed from the bench this evening?

UNLUCKY FOR SOME
With Halloween approaching, a night with Tottenham is enough to send the shivers down the Turf Moor faithful.
And that's because the Clarets have failed to win 13 of the past 14 meetings between the clubs in all competitions.
Burnley's sole win in that period is a 2-1n home success in the Premier League back in February 2019.
Otherwise, it's been a horror show for Sean Dyche's men with four draws and nine defeats in that time.

Sean Dyche has named Jay Rodriguez as one of his strikers for tonight's Carabao Cup tie with Tottenham and it's easy to see why.
J-Rod has been directly involved in 19 goals in his last 20 League Cup appearances, netting 16 goals himself and providing three assists.
The forward's astonishing run in the competition has taken place over the past decade, starting and ending with four-goal hauls: against Burton in 2011 and Rochdale last month.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR XI
It's six changes for Spurs. Nuno Espirito Santo hands starts to goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini, defenders Davinson Sanchez and Ben Davies, and attacking midfielders Giovani Lo Celso, Steven Bergwijn and Bryan Gil. The pairing of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Oliver Skipp remain together in the middle of the park, while captain Harry Kane is perhaps a surprise starter up front. It's a 4-2-3-1 shape for Tottenham, who have announced that Dele Alli and Harry Winks have not travelled with the squad.
22 Gollini; 12 Emerson, 6 Sanchez, 4 Romero, 33 Davies; 5 Hojbjerg, 29 Skipp; 18 Lo Celso, 23 Bergwijn, 11 Bryan; 10 Kane

Sean Dyche makes six changes to the Burnley side that drew at Southampton on Saturday. Connor Roberts comes in for his first start since joining the club from Swansea, and is joined in defence by Ben Mee and Erik Pieters. Johann Berg Gudmundsson replaces Ashley Westwood in midfield while, up front, League Cup specialist Jay Rodriguez and Matej Vydra are in for Chris Wood and Maxwel Cornet, who drop to the bench. It's an old school 4-4-2 formation for the Clarets, who are captained by the returning Mee.

THE TEAMSHEETS ARE IN!

It's 12 years since Turf Moor witnessed one of its most dramatic nights, the second leg of the League Cup semi-final against Spurs that ultimately ended in heartbreak.
Few gave Burnley a chance after falling to a 4-1 defeat at White Hart Lane in the first leg, only for Owen Coyle's team to give their all in the return match.
Goals from Robbie Blake, Chris McCann and – two minutes from the end – Jay Rodriguez took the game to extra-time, and it was the Championship side that looked destined for Wembley on the away goals ruling.
That was until, however, Roman Pavlyuchenko stole in to score in the 118th minute, despair that was intensified econds later when Jermain Defoe added another for Tottenham.
Harry Redknapp's Spurs went on to lose the final to Manchester United on penalties.
Luke Modric turns away from Joey Gudjonsson in the League Cup semi-final in 2012.

Burnley on a wet Wednesday night? It's almost as tough as Stoke on a Tuesday, but it's still Spurs that are favourites to proceed to the quarter-finals this evening.
- Burnley win 5/2
- Draw 23/10
- Tottenham win 21/20

Welcome to Turf Moor for our live coverage of the Carabao Cup fourth round tie between Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur.
A competition often overlooked by top-flight clubs, this evening's clash should be viewed as an opportunity for these two teams despite its early billing in the season.
And that's because neither are finding the new Premier League campaign to their liking.
The Clarets are notorious slow starters yet even the most optimistic of supporters will be concerned that they find themselves without a win nine games in.
Sixth-placed Spurs, meanwhile, have critics among their fanbase as much for their unadventurous style of play as their results.
So the prospect of being three wins from Wembley presents the possibility of silverware, and a chance to put smiles back on the faces of their faithful followings.
The action gets underway at 7.45pm, and we'll have official team news for you shortly.
