Tottenham are requesting the views of the fans regarding the venue of the Carabao Cup third round tie, as per Sky Sports.
The report claims that Tottenham have not finalised a stadium for the third round tie which takes place on 25/26 September. Wembley would be unavailable during that period and the report adds that the club spoke with the club’s Supporters’ Trust, who launched an online survey,
The report adds that the choices for the fans as either a neutral ground, fixture reversal or voting for “no preference”. Should Spurs reverse the fixture, they would have to compensate their opponents.
The report further adds that Tottenham would be playing their first Champions League home game at Wembley. Tottenham’s clash against Manchester City on 28th October is a doubt for our new ground too and Sky Sports believe we could be playing at Wembley a day later due to an NFL fixture.
The Carabao Cup is certainly a trophy Mauricio Pochettino can target to break his duck at Tottenham.
Playing at a neutral ground or reversing the fixture might have hurt us in the past but we played away from White Hart Lane for the entirety of last season, so a few more games away should not be a problem.
