Tottenham vs Brentford
Tottenham are set to return to League Cup action later today.
After seeing off Stoke in the last round, the Lilywhites were drawn against another Championship side, Brentford, in the semi-finals.
The winners of said tie will face one of Manchester United or Manchester City in the final.
That clash, of course, will be pretty tough no matter who wins out of the Manchester outfits.
Both are in solid form of late and have managed to keep the League Cup in Manchester for the last five years with City winning it four times and United winning it once.

Del Alli to feature vs Brentford?
With this clash obviously so important to the north Londoners, you would assume that Mourinho will put out a fairly strong starting eleven, despite the weaker opposition.
And according to a report from the Evening Standard on Tuesday, Brentford will likely have to deal with both Harry Kane and Heung-min Son.
Somewhat surprisingly though, the ES also claim that Dele Alli is too in contention to return against the Championship side.
This comes with the report suggesting that Gareth Bale is not expected to be fit tonight, Steven Bergwijn may be rested and both Erik Lamela and Giovani Lo Celso are unavailable:
