WHAT a photo that is by the way.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino was in reflective mood yesterday, saying that Tottenham “need to operate in a different way” if they want to win titles in the future.
He also said he wanted to be about for 20 years, but some newspapers still took the chance to say that he’s on his wayout.
Will Spurs start spending big once the new ground is up and running?
I know absolutely nothing about tattoos.
But – that’s pretty good isn’t it?
If Bayern Munich want to sign one of your youngsters that’s a pretty good sign isn’t it?
Chelsea hand this young man another chance to impress tonight.
Another strong line up as Chelsea make eight changes from the largely second-string XI which beat Nottingham Forest.
Callum Hudson-Odoi keeps his place…
Spurs scored seven on Friday night and they make seven changes from that side.
Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Son all start in a strong looking XI.
Chelsea can trump that – they have won five League Cups, most recently in 2015 when tey beat – you guessed it – Tottenham in the final.
It was a 2-0 win for Jose Murinho and co, with the universally loved duo of John Terry and Diego Costa on the scoresheet…
Spurs have won the EFL Cup on four occasions, most recently in 2008 when they beat – you guessed it – Chelsea in the final.
I would tell you who scored the winner but that would ruin this quiz for you wouldn’t it?
Sulaimon Adelekan: I don’t think Arsenal will lose any player this January though Aaron Ramsey is going at the end of the season. I will miss him
LiamTheCarr: I think the side who wins tonight will go onto the final. If #Tottenham win then I think it would be a draw in the 2nd leg so #Spurs go through. However, if #Chelsea win tonight, I can’t see Tottenham overturning it in the second leg.

SMS Message: Surely both teams should go full strength tonight? It’s a trophy, maybe not the most prestigious, but it wouldn’t be a bad first trophy in England for either manager. Although I think this is more important for Spurs than Chelsea. from James
Surely both teams should go full strength tonight? It’s a trophy, maybe not the most prestigious, but it wouldn’t be a bad first trophy in England for either manager. Although I think this is more important for Spurs than Chelsea.
That’s the ticket Richard. Off to a lovely start…
Richard Browne: 4th rate cup that nobody cares about has a two leg semi-final. Why?
So it looks like Spurs are losing Mousa Dembele and Chelsea could be moving on Cesc Fabregas.
Who do you think your club might lose before the transfer deadline? And who are you desperate to cling on to?
Let us know on text (81111, UK Only) or at #bbcfootball
Is that the end of Cesc in England? Another Premier League great may be on his way too.

Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele is on the brink of completing an £11m move to Chinese Super League club Beijing Guoan.
The Belgium international, 31, is out of contract in the summer and has not played for Spurs since injuring his ankle against Wolves in November.
Chairman Daniel Levy is keen to trim players from manager Mauricio Pochettino’s squad.
Striker Vincent Janssen is also likely to leave during the January window.
With such a heavy workload for both of this sides – still fighting on four fronts – we are expecting changes galore again tonight.
Both teams won in the FA Cup at the weekend – here, watch all the goals as Spurs score a ‘magnificent seven’ against League Two Tranmere Rovers in the FA Cup third round.
Due to a mammoth fixture pile up and some tv scheduling that I don’t really understand, we couldn’t confirm when the second leg of this semi would actually take place until today.
It’s been sorted now – it’s two weeks on Thursday…
The games keep coming for Spurs and Chelsea.
Both sides will play a 12th match in the last 37 days tonight as we begin the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup.
It won’t be at the top of either side’s wishlist this season – but if you get to the two-legged semis then you might as well win it, right?
The final looms on 24 February – who will be back at Wembley for it?
