Kick-off is set for 7.45pm BST. Live coverage is on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD. Live Radio coverage is available on BBC Radio 5 Live.


Tottenham welcome Arsenal to White Hart Lane on Wednesday with both clubs fighting for a place in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup. Despite it being the League Cup, this match will be of huge significance to both teams. A win will go a long way in building confidence for the season ahead.

Spurs come into this game on the back of three successive victories in the Europa League and Premier League. After a slow start to the season, Mauricio Pochettino's men have sharpened their game and are now one of the form teams in the league.

The Argentine manager will be keen to continue the run and will put out a strong team to take on the Gunners, who are looking vulnerable at the moment. Arsenal are coming into the game after facing successful defeats against Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League and Chelsea in the Premier League. The clash against the Blues was a feisty affair as it saw Santi Cazorla and Gabriel Paulista being sent off.

Arsene Wenger will be keen to arrest the early season slump and will be keen to get a much-needed morale-boosting win over their north London rivals.

The player to watch out for will be Spurs summer signing Heung-Min Son, who has started his career in England in promising fashion scoring three goals in two games in all competitions.
