40 minutes: McClean letting occasional loops from the filled Tottenham box. Fletcher glides on, and Dier heads clean without pressure.
38 minutes: That’s very comfortable for Tottenham, but they want at least one more goal as soon as possible. There was no suggestion that Stoke City could score a draw but this cannot be ruled out.
36 minutes: A pass was intercepted by Collins in midfield, and Tottenham quickly fired Kane on the left. He heads toward the box and then passes a pass to Alli, who strikes her for the first time from a distance of 10 yards. Lonergan makes fine keeping his feet!
32 minutes: Fox Off appears to have had a muscle injury. He is off the field while Stoke decides if he needs to be replaced. McLynn takes his place at left-back.
28 minutes: Sutar receives a corner kick cheaply. Bill runs to get it. He is wrinkling his slingshot behind the far post. Lonergan fluffs it up and misses out, but Collins works well to keep Alli from getting to his knees.
27 minutes: Stoke has a free kick from the right seam, a chance to lift the ball into Tottenham’s square for the first time. The big men come from behind … and shorten Stoke City, then move away from the opportunity to cross.
Goal! Stoke City 0-1 Tottenham (Bell 21)
Tottenham made a surprising lead. He hit a curled cross from the left flank and Bale was free in the penalty kick, throwing a header back into the net. All good defensive stoke is collapsing!
25 minutes: Alli has worked hard to try to make things happen but things have not quite come true for him yet, other than that nice nutmeg on Smith now.
23 minutes: Stoke won’t open and chase the tie yet. First, they have to make sure that Spurs won’t put the game out of sight, which is what they are trying to do. Stoke struggles to get the ball. “I am curious,” admits Paolo Biriani. Any details about Stoke’s sub-goalkeeper? It’s Blondy Nna Noukeu, 18, who joined Stoke last summer from a club in Belgium where his father Patrice used to play with Mouscron. Like Cameroon at the international level for youth.
18 minutesStoke continues to frustrate visitors. Kane and Mora both fell deep in the last two minutes in an attempt to create something but neither produced a pass accurate enough to break up the home side’s defense.
15 minutes: Doherty skates to the right and then slips the ball into Kane’s trajectory, who fires a sidecar shot from a narrow angle.
12 minutes: The first shot of the match comes from Hojbjerg. And by “enter,” I mean he raised the ball from 25 yards.
9 minutes: Stoke well-drilled and lively, as expected from Team O’Neill. They’ve kept Tottenham in trouble very effectively so far.
7 minutesWinks dances in front of McLean in midfield, but the Irishman returns to send Bill down the left. Neither Bell nor Ali has done much so far.
5 minutes: Tottenham continue to thrash the ball, especially in the Stoke game.
3 minutes: A rocking corner of Mora brings Lonergan into excitement for the first time. The guard goes a clear punch but is not needed, as Beth nodded away from him. But when the cross returns from the left, Lonergan has to pierce it to safety.
2 minutes: Arsenal were trailing with a goal at this point in the quarter-finals yesterday, so it was a great start for Stoke despite Tottenham’s possession of 99% of the ball.
1 minute: Off they go in severe embrittlement. Tottenham is wearing their third kit in dark green for the first time this season. Is there still time to order it as a Christmas gift?
“Good evening! Hopefully Tottenham will walk in front immediately and attack so we can advance two or three half the time. Then we can pull people like Kane out and rest them on Saturday. But as a Tottenham fan knows us, I doubt it would be that simple!” Dan joked P.
“Is Michael O’Neill’s decision to play 37-year-old Andy Lonergan in goal – after two years on the bench with pipes and slippers at the ready – the best players, it’s Tottenham!” Moment? ”Justin Kavanagh laughs.
Regarding the inclusion of Alli and Bale, Mourinho points out that this represents an opportunity for them to play their way into the starting line-up in the Premier League. “It is an opportunity. Of course the goal is to win and go to the semi-finals and I will never choose a team or a player that I did not think could perform for the team and do the task that we need to do.”
Mourinho also says Stoke has been a good host so far, having upgraded the visiting team’s facilities following recent convictions from the likes of Neil Warnock. “He is very, very good,” says Mourinho. I know those who complained have reason to complain because we watched the videos. Maybe we should thank them because today we have very good facilities. “
Conditions in Stoke – yes – very wet and windy. O’Neill says this was a factor in his decision to pursue the Lonergan n. “We had only young goalkeepers as other options and we felt the conditions, and at this point in the competition, we decided to go with the experience.” He adds, “The league is always our priority and we want to push for the top six but after we got this far in the competition, we want to deal.” With this match correctly. We have made six changes but put energy into the team. “
With three goalkeepers injured and another cup tie, O’Neill chose to give a strong start to 37-year-old Andy Lonergan, who has not played a competitive match in nearly two years. Unarmed Harry Kane will be dead on testing his reflexes … and see, there’s Dele Alli, who got a chance to get back in Jose’s heart … or lure bidders in January.

Hi. Stoke City wins titles every 153 years, so they couldn’t exactly be considered the main contenders to win the Carabao Cup this season even before their confrontation against one of the best teams in England. Yes, this means that Tottenham entered this match against the backdrop of the defeat to Liverpool and Leicester, two of the five teams that beat them in the Premier League table. With jumping on the table their top priority for this season – and this is one of three matches Tottenham must play in a week – Jose Mourinho It is likely to make many changes to its usual base lineup. But make no mistake, he would like to win this tournament to prove that he has turned Tottenham into winners and has a strong team, so the Premier League team should definitely expect to defeat a seventh-placed side in the tournament. But Michael O’Neill, who coached Stoke last season when he was trailing down in Tier 2, has a proud record of inconveniencing teams with far more resources, especially from his time with Northern Ireland and Shamrock Rovers. Stoke City have already knocked out Wolverhampton and Aston Villa this season, and he’s able to shed Tottenham’s blood. Let’s welcome you!
