Trouble with this game is that I am ambivalent – desperately want to beat the Miscreants but don’t want a two leg semi-final against Oilers.
How will Mr. Emery approach this fixture? Will he continue to utilise youth players or prioritise silverware and select a number of first teamers? I have no idea and doubt you do!
The 4-2 victory was glorious (any victory against them is glorious). Every goal magnificent. We witnessed one of the PL games of the season and gave them a hammering. The Emirates was rocking. Shame we couldn’t repeat a 5-2 victory!
Pochettino will want to end his final season at Spurs with some silverware, so I anticipate they will bring a very strong team including Alderweiss (isn’t that a song from Sound of Music?), Alli and all the other muppets.
We, on the other hand, are blighted by injuries and cannot risk some of our chaps. Dare we start with Nketiah upfront or play safe with Lacazette?

Mustafi is recovering from injury, Kos played 90 on Sunday, Holding out, Mavro out, Wradrobe out, Chambers AWOL, we have to play either Monreal or a kid at CB, I choose the kid. SAka and Eddie on the bench. PEA given a night off.
We play Burnley at the weekend which must be the priority.
If we win – it is a fine victory
If we lose – it is only the Carabao and we beat them in the important game.
