Burnley handed home draw against Spurs in last 16 of Carabao Cup
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.
Having come past Newcastle United on penalties at St James” Park, the Clarets eased past League 2 Rochdale 4-1 on Tuesday night, with all four goals from Jay Rodriguez.
And their reward was a place in the fourth round, with ties to be played in the week commencing October 25th.
