The Daily Mail have revealed that Tottenham fans are unlikely to be permitted to attend the Carabao Cup final in Wembley on April 25.
While Tottenham are currently in a disastrous run of form in the Premier League, the one potential saving grace for the remainder of the season is the fact that Mourinho’s men are still in the Europa League and have booked their place in the Carabao Cup final.
The final, which is usually held in February, was pushed back to April 25 so that a limited number of fans may have the chance to attend the match.
However, The Mail have now said that the game is likely to be played behind closed doors as it comes too early for fans to get the green light from the UK government to attend, even in a limited capacity.
The return of football fans to the stadia will reportedly be included in Boris Johnson’s road map out of lockdown but the Prime Minister is said to be taking a cautious approach to lifting the rules.
While it was initially hoped that the Carabao Cup final would be the first football match to see spectators return, that is now unlikely to be the case.

If fans are not going to be allowed for the final, then it made little sense to postpone it in the first place.
However, the decision to play the final in April instead of February could be a blessing in disguise for Spurs as we have had a torrid month while Manchester City are flying at the moment.
Hopefully, we can pick up our form by the time the final comes around and City do not look as infallible as they do now.
