What TV channel is Tottenham vs Chelsea in Carabao Cup? Live stream and kick off details

Tottenham Hotspur have been awarded a bye into the Carabao Cup fourth round after last week’s clash against Leyton Orient was called off. Orient had confirmed 18 player and staff had tested positive for coronavirus, leading to the match being called off just hours before kick off. Orient’s manager, Ross Embleton, said he was “devastated” to miss the tie which could have secured the club funding of more than £100,000.

The O’s gaffer had hoped the match would be rescheduled – but EFL rules confirmed the League Two club had to forfeit the match. Embleton said: “This club is used to setbacks. It’s really important that players, staff and supporters stick together through tough times.”

The EFL statement read: “In accordance with Carabao Cup Rules, Tottenham Hotspur have been awarded with a bye to progress to Round Four of the Carabao Cup and will now play Chelsea on Tuesday 29 September.

“The Round Three tie scheduled for Tuesday 22 September between Leyton Orient and Tottenham Hotspur could not take place following the issue by Waltham Forest Borough Council of an order preventing the match being played as planned. This followed a number of Leyton Orient players testing positive for COVID-19.

“The EFL Board has determined that in line with Carabao Cup Rule 5.1, the Club was unable to fulfil its obligations to complete the fixture by virtue of the Council’s order and shall therefore forfeit the tie.”

Who will win?

Mourinho’s side were fortunate to receive a bye into the fourth round, with last week’s fixtures seeing them have to play three games in six days before the Orient clash was called off.

Despite making signings this summer, the side have still got off to a tricky start this season – with a controversial handball decision in their clash against Newcastle on Sunday night seeing the Lilywhites lose out on what should have been an easy three point.

Meanwhile Lampard’s men fought back to draw 3-3- with West Brom at the weekend, and the Blues boss has blamed a slow start to the season on not being given enough time to prepare. But he said “every game is an opportunity to improve”.

Speaking at a press conference on Monday, the Chelsea legend said of Tuesday’s clash: “I know it is a busy time for Spurs, they have had a busy week. But I know the squad they have, they still have a fantastic squad. Any team they put out will be very strong.”

So what do the experts think? Well, The Pools say this is Chelsea’s victory to lose, according to the latest odds.

  • Tottenham – 28.6%
  • Draw – 27.8%
  • Chelsea – 51.3%

“Tottenham would have breathed a sigh of relief knowing their match against Leyton Orient was called off – an extra day’s rest helped them progress in the Europa League but the fixture congestion headache for Jose Mourinho’s side has come back to haunt them.

“Fortunately, there are no lengthy plane journeys this time as they welcome Maccabi Haifa for a place in the group stage but they have Chelsea before that.

“Mourinho’s side will be feeling frustrated by the fixture congestion – Chelsea, Maccabi Haifa and a trip to Man United all within six days – so will they sacrifice their place in the League Cup to keep their chances of European or Premier League top 4 success alive?

“Frank Lampard’s Chelsea has absolutely nothing of the sort to worry about so we could see a stronger starting XI from Mourinho’s former protege and talisman.”
