Burnley and Tottenham would go head on in Turf Moor Statium, the home ground of Burnley FC on Wednesday 27th October 2021, 7;45pm.
Maxwel Cornet, Burnley’s left winger who scored twice in the 2-2 draw at Southampton on Saturday, came off with cramp and is unlikely to be used for today’s match.
Boss Nuno Espirito Santo left his Premier League stars at home for last week’s Europa Conference League game at Vitesse Arnhem, and while he may not deploy the same tactics this time, he is still likely to shuffle his pack.
According to Nuno Espirito, he says “We have players who need minutes, who deserve minutes, but it’s up to us to manage the situation of the players because what we want is to build a competitive team”.
“It’s going to be a tough match like we expect because Burnley is a good team but it’s a good chance for us to improve, knowing that the Carabao Cup is an important competition for us.”
Matt Doherty, Burnley’s right back would be fit after an injury he picked up on international duty with the Republic of Ireland.
