It is the first time the sides have met in the League Cup since the incredible 2008/09 semi-final when the Clarets overturned a 4-1 first leg deficit, taking the second leg into extra time, only to lose out on a trip to Wembley due to two late goals.

Burnley previously knocked Spurs out of the competition in 1983, winning the quarter-final 4-1 at White Hart Lane, and enjoyed a 2-1 win at Turf Moor in November 2002.

They were knocked out by Spurs in 1993, losing 3-1 on aggregate, and in 2004, going down 3-0 at Turf Moor.
