Tottenham begin their Carabao Cup journey on Wednesday evening when they travel to Molineux to face Wolves.
Spurs are looking to bounce back from their defeat in the final of last year’s competition, which saw Manchester City claim their eighth League Cup crown.
The loss extended the North Londoners’ barren trophy drought to 13 years, with their last piece of silverware coming in the 2008 edition of the competition.
The clash in the West Midlands sees Nuno Espirito Santo return to his former side for the second time this season after Spurs registered a 1-0 win in the Premier League last month.
Here’s what you need to know ahead of Spurs’ opening fixture in the Carabao Cup.

Nuno’s worries were somewhat relaxed at the weekend, after welcoming back Heung-min Son from injury and his South American trio of Giovani Lo Celso, Cristian Romero and Davinson Sanchez following their training camp in Croatia.
Japhet Tananga will be available for selection having served his suspension for picking up two bookings against Crystal Palace almost a fortnight ago.
But attackers Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura will still be unavailable for Nuno after both picked up knocks during the Europa Conference League opener against Rennes.
The likes of Pierluigi Gollini, Oliver Skipp and Bryan Gil will be looking to earn spots in the starting line-up at Molineux amidst some squad rotation.
Wolves boss Bruno Lage will still be without Pedro Neto, Jonny Otto and Hugo Bueno, who have all remained absent indefinitely.
The hosts are expected to make wholesale changes following their defeat to Brentford at the weekend, which could see the likes of Hwang Hee-chan, Daniel Podence and Fabio Silva come into the side.
