For a place in the fifth round of the League Cup, Tottenham Hotspur have to ignore fatigue from the fixture pile-up and brave the blue storm Chelsea bring with them.

Mourinho will go up against a familiar face in Lampard, bearing in mind that this is their second of three games in just a five-day period.

Both sides come into the Tuesday night fixture in desperate need for a win, after both only managing draws over the Premier League weekend.

Spurs were held to a 1-1 draw by Newcastle, while Chelsea had to pull off a great second half performance to fight back from a 3-0 deficit to snatch a draw at West Bromwich Albion.

What time does Spurs vs Chelsea start?
