Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris is looking for revenge on Wednesday night at Spurs face their second trip to the Emirates this month.

Spurs and Arsenal went head to head in a thrilling North London Derby just a couple of weeks ago, with the Gunners coming from behind to seal a 4-2 win, as well as the bragging rights.

It is rare for a club to get a chance at revenge so soon after a derby day loss, but the Carabao Cup draw has gifted Spurs that chance.

The two sides will clash in the League Cup quarter finals, with the winner having a very real chance of lifting some silverware this season.

The Tottenham side certainly won’t need any motivation when it comes to the latest NLD, as they look to get one over on their neighbours.

Spurs currently sit third in the League, with Arsenal down in fifth after losing to Southampton.

Hugo Lloris said (Independent): “Maybe it’s the good thing that we lost the Premier League game a few weeks ago because it is more motivation for us.

“There is no more bad feeling than when you get a defeat. You always try to analyse and make things that we will not repeat again. It is another opportunity and we will try our best to go through.

“Every game that you lose it hurts, but of course when you lead 2-1, it’s true that Arsenal is playing very well this season and it is a difficult team to beat but I think we have the quality to do it.

“Of course there is priority in the season but it is a League Cup game and if you go through there is a semi-final and a good chance.

“And then it is a derby so it is easier to prepare for because there always excitement and enjoyment to play that type of game.

“We need to believe and we have a chance. We have a lot of respect for them but every game we try to win, it was the case when we played Barcelona away, it was the case last season when we played Madrid or Juventus away and every game you want to compete and win.

“There are different circumstances and you try to adapt, but with the same motivation and willingness to win.”
