Spurs must take this seriously
Spurs are part of the event English team that are entering the competition in round three. This coterie of PL clubs have been bestowed with this luxury due to their participation in European competitions this season.
It will be an interesting battle and it remains to be seen the kind of team manager Antonio Conte fields for this. This is one of the four trophies available to us this season and the last trophy our club won, all the way back in 2008 against Chelsea in the final.
The Italian manager would be wise to take this competition seriously because if we fail to succeed elsewhere, a win here could finally break our duck and instil our squad with much-needed confidence.
