Tottenham Hotspur hosts Brentford in the EFL Cup semifinals. The match will be played on Tuesday, January 5th at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London).
As for the Spurs, the path to the semifinals of the tournament began with a match with Chelsea in the 1/8 finals (6:5 on penalties) and continued with success in the game with Stoke City (3:1). Let’s recall that the London club won this tournament three times in history (the last time in the season 07/08). Jose Mourinho is trying to return his players to the number of contenders for a place in the Champions League, but the team is sorely lacking stability. The club's work in the transfer market looks like a failure. As for the newcomers, only Reguilon, Dougherty, and Hojbjerg bring real benefits. Bale regularly resides in the infirmary, Lo Celso is far from his optimal shape, and Fernandes and Vinicius do not match the level of the Spurs’ ambitions. The team has to count on its old-timers (Kane, Son, Lloris, and Sanchez).
The Bees are the only ones representing the Championship at this stage of the tournament. In the regular championship, Brentford is one of the potential candidates for promotion. The club beat rivals such as Wycombe, Southampton, West Bromwich, Fulham, and Newcastle on its way to the League Cup semifinals. The team proved to be strong and unyielding in matches with the middle peasants of English football. Thomas Frank has the weakest squad among all the participants in this stage of the tournament. However, there are some great football players in Brentford. They are goalkeeper Raya, defenders P. Jansson, Henry, and Dalsgaard, midfielders Canos, Mbeumo, and Dasilva, as well as forward Toney (16 goals scored in the Championship).
The favorite of this semifinal match is obvious, and this is Tottenhnam. Mourinho's players are tired of failures in the local arena, and the Portuguese coach has a reputation as the king of cup tournaments. Tottenham must come close to the coveted and prestigious trophy in English football, which has been won by Manchester City for three years in a row. Brentford can create a sensation only in the event of a serious underestimation from the grandee.
