These Tottenham Hotspur fans felt that they received one of the better early Christmas presents following news of the Carabao Cup draw.
With fellow Premier League sides Manchester United and Manchester City in the hat, there must have been a few nervy fans in North London as the names were set to be pulled out. But when the two Manchester sides were paired together, all that was left to do was see whether or not they’d be at home, and they even managed to get lucky on that front as well. So it’s Championship side Brentford at home in January for the right to move on to the Carabao Cup final in April.
Spurs have been without silverware since their triumph in this competition back in 2007/08, so avoiding a fellow Big Six side at this stage left a large number of them feeling rather upbeat that this could be the year they finally end that drought, as they find themselves ninety minutes away from Wembley.

SPURS FANS REACTION TO THE CARABAO CUP DRAW
Will Spurs end their trophy drought this season?
Although Spurs fans should be wary, just because they’re from a lower division doesn’t mean that they’re going to be a pushover, having already knocked out four Premier League sides on their way to the last four.
