Tottenham Hotspur take on their biggest rival for the second time this month as they travel to the Emirates tomorrow night.

Arsenal and Spurs were drawn against each other in the quarter finals of the Carabao Cup as both look to fight it out for a place in the semis.

Spurs will be looking for revenge after giving up a half time lead to lose the last North London Derby 4-2.

Tottenham had already played and beaten the likes of Chelsea and Inter Milan that week, and looked as if they felt the pace come the end of the game.

A chance for retribution rarely comes around so quickly, but Tottenham will be taking this latest trip to the Emirates very seriously, as there is silverware on the line.

The one thing missing from Pochettino’s CV, and Spurs’ cabinet for the last decade, is a trophy.

If the club can beat Arsenal on the way to lifting the League Cup, that would just about be the perfect scenario.

Pochettino on what he learned from the loss (Football London): “Not too many lessons because I think the circumstance when you play is to considerate circumstance. We played the derby after two big games against Chelsea and Inter Milan. Two must-win games. The conditions aren’t the best. I’ve told you before in the past you need some luck in the draw and luck with the fixtures.

“Tomorrow, of course an important game, but to learn from a few weeks ago it will be a different game and approach. The competition is different. All the team are going to do many rotations. Maybe I surprise you and not rotate too much.”
