Tottenham Hotspur have continued their first trophy hunting mission since last winning it in 2008 and the 12-year wait is clearly a long period for ambitious teams like them.
The entry of Jose Mourinho clearly signals where they want to end the bad moment and the League Cup 2020/21 gives them the best chance to forge a name in history.
Facing Brentford in the semi-finals of the League Cup, Spurs are in the best position to end a lackluster performance when they beat Stoke City 3-1 in the quarter-finals of the League Cup and beat Leeds United 3-0 in the English Premier League (EPL).
Harry Kane and Son Heung Min continued their strong coupling against Leeds and the victory placed them in third place in the league, four points behind Liverpool and Manchester United.
Brentford are also currently in third place in the Championship League and want to continue the ‘fairy tale’ by trying to book tickets to the final for the first time in their team history.
Both teams appear to be dropping their best line-up in the crucial action after no injuries suffered by their key players.
With the chance to win the first trophy of the decade, Mourinho will definitely put full hope in Kane and Son’s team to rip Brentford’s goal which will be helped through the presence of Steven Bergwijn.
Mourinho will likely place Lucas Moura as the fourth striker or bring Tanguy Ndombele to center position as he did during the day against Leeds.
New player in the summer, Pierre-Emile Hojberg who showed excellent performance is expected to team up with young player, Harry Winks.
With a player quality gap between the two teams and Mourinho’s’ aura ‘that will surely win trophies in every team he manages, Spurs will definitely come down with status as an option and Brentford seem unable to block Spurs’ progress.
