Let’s get the team news…

Tottenham were given a bye through the previous round after Leyton Orient failed to fulfil the fixture due to positive coronavirus tests, although their schedule remains manic, with Maccabi Haifa visiting Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for a Europa League play-off in just two days’ time. Meanwhile, Chelsea thrashed Barnsley 6-0 last week to set up this tie.

The two London rivals endured contrasting fortunes at the weekend, yet both came away from matchweek three of the Premier League with just a point. Spurs dominated Newcastle United but saw a controversial late penalty award go against them, while Chelsea battled back from 3-0 down at West Brom to earn a draw. Attention now turns to the cup and this fourth-round tie.
