Tottenham v Brentford team news

Tottenham: Expect a full strength XI from Spurs as this is their best chance at a trophy in 2020/21.

Giovani Lo Celso, Gareth Bale and Japhet Tanganga are missing through injury, while Erik Lamela will not be in contention following a breach of COVID-19 rules over the Christmas period.

Brentford: Similarly to Spurs, the Bees will go all-out for triumph here.

Shandon Baptiste, Christian Norgaard and Mads Roerslev Rasmussen are the only three absentees from their perspective.

Our prediction: Tottenham v Brentford

Mourinho lives for cup football. He is a natural trophy-winner. Everything he does for Spurs, he does it to maximise chances of wrapping his hands around a glint of silver.

His defensive style comes under fire from many critics, but he won't compromise, not even against opposition from the league below, and rightly so.

Brentford have beaten four Premier League teams in their run to the semi-finals. They boast more wins against top flight opponents this season than each of the bottom five teams in the Premier League so far, with Ivan Toney posing a major threat going forwards.

Spurs should still navigate a path to the final, but expect a tense clash between two contrasting styles of play.

Our prediction: Tottenham 2-1 Brentford
