Team news

Luton v Man Utd (20:15 BST)

Goalkeeper Dean Henderson makes his senior debut for Manchester United as boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes 10 changes to the side that lost to Crystal Palace at the weekend.

It will be a big night for Luton's Ryan Tunnicliffe. The Manchester-born midfielder faces the club whose youth system he came through. They make nine changes.

Luton XI: Shea, Kioso, Lockyer, Bradley, Norrington-Davies, Clark, Tunnicliffe, Moncur, LuaLua, Hylton, Shinnie. Subs: Cranie, Pearson, Cornick, Lee, Sluga, Mpanzu, Collins.

Man Utd XI: Henderson, Wan Bissaka, Bailly, Maguire, Williams, Fred, Matic, Mata, van de Beek, Lingard, Ighalo. Subs: Rashford, Greenwood, Grant, Bruno Fernandes, Dalot, James, Mengi.

It's his philosophy and his players are living it on the pitch. Sign of a proper manager.

Surprised nobody mentioned Havertz scoring a hat-trick last night.

Abraham set-up all three with great assists.

don't think the atmosphere was ever this good in a real Spurs game with real fans

fake crowd noise making it seem like a non-stop festival of fan chants, cheers, ooohs and aaaahs, full-throttle shouting, whistling and booing lmao

it's embarrassing

Spurs win on penalties

Reguillon makes up for his mistake with a nice assist. Mason Mount totally screws Chelsea over when he comes on

Yeah should mention it since RG was having a laugh, Reguilon had a great game down the left and set up the tying goal with a wonderful cross on his weaker foot.

Chelsea should feel awful. Spurs put out mostly a B side with some first teamers mixed in, and Chelsea put out what appeared to me a pretty strong side. Spurs manage to go through

I thought Mount was the only gamechanger that Chelsea had fit.

So many signings still Pulisic and Kante the only prime movers. Lampard will be under pressure so early in the season.

Unbelievable that Mou put a team with 5 Dms, 1 winger and 1 forward and still somehow won. There is no justice in the world...

To be fair, this is the correct take. Especially for Chelsea.

Mou and Spurs fans seem intent on silverware even if it's just the caraboo cup, though. So this is a good result for Tottenham. Although I don't understand why (people care about a Mickey mouse cup)

The Carabao Cup is basically:

Rounds 3 to the semi's - Meh, mickey mouse cup, shouldn't exist, happy to go out.
Final - Hell yeah let's win this thing.

When you start playing the big teams over two legs in the semis and playing at Wembley, it starts to matter.

Summed up perfectly. How I felt about the Carling Cup victory under Dalglish until well......the semi vs City and the final that we won.
