Tottenham Hotspur predicted lineup vs Brentford, Preview, Latest Team News, Prediction and Live Score, Carabao Cup 2020/21
Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur continue their quest for a first piece of silverware since their 2008 victory in the then-Carling Cup, and Alley Sport is here with the Tottenham Hotspur predicted lineup vs Brentford. A 12-year trophy drought is way too long for any club with serious ambitions and Tottenham have been trying to rectify this blackmark in their history for sometime now. The Carabao Cup 2020/21 presents a nice opportunity for Jose Mourinho and co to etch their name in the history books.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Brentford, Match Preview
Spurs come into this game after recently putting to end a bad run of form. They recovered from a mid-season slump by beating Stoke City 1-3 in the Quarter-final of this competition and later defeating Leeds United 3-0. Harry Kane and Son Heung-min continued their devastating partnership against Leeds, with Toby Alderweireld also on the scoresheet. The win took Tottenham to 3rd in the Premier League, 4 points behind Liverpool and Man United.
Their opponents Brentford are also 3rd in the EFL Championship and have won 4 of their last 5 matches, including a 1-0 win over Newcastle United in the EFL Cup Quarter-Final. The Championship club would be hoping to continue their fairy-tale run in the Carabao Cup this year, by reaching the final for the first time in their history. The game will take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in North London.

Tottenham Hotspur predicted lineup vs Brentford
Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho will be expected to play his strongest available XI due to the club’s lack of silverware in over a decade. In-form forwards Son Heung-min and England captain Harry Kane are expected to continue in attack, with Steven Bergwijn providing support. Mourinho might go for Lucas Moura as a fourth attacker, or choose to play club record signing Tanguy Ndombele in an advanced midfield role, like he did in the league match against Leeds. Summer signing Pierre-Emile Hojberg who has been in stellar form is expected to continue in a double pivot with young midfielder Harry Winks.
