One year of José Mourinho at Tottenham Hotspur
For Brentford, meanwhile, it is the first time they have reached the semi-finals of a major domestic cup competition in their 131-year history. The Bees have picked off a series of top flight scalps en route to this stage, starting with Southampton in the second round before all of West Brom, Fulham and Newcastle fell victim to last year’s playoff finalists. Daniel Farke’s side might have lost star forwards Ollie Watkins and Said Benrahma over the summer, but they are vying for promotion once again and boast a wealth of exciting young players. The winner of tonight’s tie will face either Manchester United or Manchester City in the final. Follow all the action live below:
- Winner to face either Man United or Man City
- Tottenham: Lloris, Aurier, Sanchez, Dier, Reguilon, Hojbjerg, Sissoko, Ndombele, Lucas, Son, Kane
- Brentford: Raya, Dalsgaard, Pinnock, Sorensen, Henry, Janelt, Dasilva, Jensen, Mbeumo, Canos, Toney
84 mins: RED CARD! Mike Dean took a quick look at the incident and it’s not good news for Brentford. Josh Dasilva jumps into the tackle and lands on Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s shin/ankle. There’s blood puring down the Spurs man’s leg as he goes off the pitch. Horrible tackle and the right decision from Mike Dean.

70 mins: GOAL! It had to happen. Spurs sweep forward quickly as Kane pick out Ndombele in the middle of the pitch. Son bursts through the lines as the pass is played up to him. Dalsgaard knows he isn’t going to catch Son and tries to bring him down to no avail. The striker carries the ball into the box and smashes it home.
