Tottenham Hotspur set to face Chelsea in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup

According to the Evening Standard, Tottenham Hotspur have been given a bye in their third-round fixture against Leyton Orient.

The third-round tie against the O’s was called off less than three hours before kick-off on Tuesday. This was after an outbreak of coronavirus cases that saw a number of players and staff go into self-quarantine.

A decision was made to cancel the fixture than rearrange it. However, now Tottenham have been given a bye, meaning they will advance to the fourth round. (h/t Evening Standard)

Orient for their part were desperate to play the game which was worth a precious £150,000 in Sky Sports and sponsorship revenue. Thankfully the EFL agreed to make up some of the lost revenue. (h/t  Evening Standard)

Spurs will now face arch-rivals Chelsea in the fourth round on September 29. It will see Jose Mourinho go up once again against his former side. The match also sees two sides face off after considerable summer reinforcements.

Tottenham have won the competition four times in their history. The last of it came in 2007/08, where we defeated Chelsea. Incidentally, that was the last time we won silverware. Something Jose Mourinho will look to change.

Spurs and Chelsea also faced off in the 2015 final where the Blues got the better of us. Frank Lampard also got the better of us twice last season giving the match further spice.

The Portuguese tactician has won the competition four times, thrice with Chelsea and once with United. This puts him joint top with Sir Alex Ferguson and Brian Clough in the honours list.

Another victory will see him cement himself as the most successful manager in the competition.

But first we will have to get the best of Chelsea next week. It is time for Mourinho to show Lampard who the master truly is.
