Tottenham’s trip to Stoke this evening is arguably one of the biggest games of their season so far with a place in the semi-final of the Carabao Cup at stake for the winner.
It has been almost 13 years since Tottenham last got their hands on a major piece of silverware and the competition gives the North Londoners a great chance of breaking the barren spell.
With Brentford getting the better of Newcastle and Manchester City demolishing Arsenal in Tuesday’s quarter-final fixtures, Spurs will be hoping to be one of two sides who make into the draw for the semi-final this evening.
According to The Independent, the draw for the final four will be held straight after the last remaining quarter-final fixture between Everton and Manchester United, which kicks off after Tottenham’s trip to the bet365.
The draw is expected to begin at around 9.45 pm live on Sky Sports. If Tottenham manage to get the better of Stoke this evening, they will not have to wait long for the semi-final, which is expected to be played on the week of 4 January.
The semi-final clash will be one-legged affair this season with the teams having to wait almost three months for the final, which has been earmarked for 25 April.

We have received some fairly difficult draws in the domestic cups over the last few years, while teams like City have been fortunate to get some easy draws. Hopefully, the roles will be reversed this time out and we get handed a semi-final clash against Brentford should we get the better of Stoke City.
