Tottenham Hotspur somehow managed to score the winner in their last Premier League fixture, and now the next stop is the EFL cup tie. The side will be welcoming the League one outfit Gillingham FC this Wednesday to play the third round of the competition.

The last victory against the Black Cats pulled them to the third spot in the League with 11 points, four points behind the leaders Manchester City, but the fixture cost them their most prized possession. Striker Harry Kane was taken off on the stretcher and is set to miss few weeks of action.

The visitors, Gillingham FC, will be stepping onto the White Hart Lane on the back of a recent 2-1 defeat to Port Vale. This surely is an easy fixture for the Premier League side, but we all are aware of the fact that nothing is certain until the final whistle; remember how MK Dons outnumbered Manchester United?

Looking at the teams’ recent form; Tottenham have won three of their last six games and have lost just once (Champions League), while the visitors have lost three of their last six games and have won just twice.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News:

As mentioned earlier, the Lilly-Whites will be without the service of their star man Harry Kane. The English international, according to the Guardian, suffered an ankle ligament damage against Sunderland and Tottenham Hotspur are awaiting the results of a second scan. The same source has further stated that this injury could sideline him for up to two months.

In that case, the new signing from Eredivisie, Vincent Janssen, is likely to take the charge. As mentioned earlier, the fixture is quite an easy one and soon after this, Middlesbrough will be hosting them in the league, so the manager might rest few key players for this game.

Besides Harry Kane, the players like Moussa Dembele, Danny Rose, and Eric Dier might miss the game as well. And, the players like Harry Winks, Kevin Wimmer, Nkoudou, Pau Lopez and Kieran Trippier could be called into action.

Head To Head:

Tottenham and Gillingham have only met once before, with Spurs winning a third-round League Cup fixture 4-2 away from home in 1982.
