Tottenham begin their quest in the Carabao Cup this evening (Wednesday, September 22) when they travel to Wolves for the second time this season. 

The first encounter came in the Premier League, which saw Nuno Espirito Santo return to his old stomping ground to claim a slender 1-0 victory. 

The clash at Molineux comes on the second night of action, after the likes of holders Manchester City, Brentford, Liverpool and Burnley all booked their places in the fourth round.

But Tuesday night also saw a couple of upsets from Championship opposition, with Everton and Watford being knocked out by QPR and Stoke respectively. 

There are a further six fixtures tonight, with nine Premier League sides looking to secure their status in the draw.
