Leyton Orient vs Tottenham
England – Carabao Cup
Date: Tuesday, 22 September 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Brisbane Road.
The Spurs were at their absolute best the last match-day, as they punished Southampton with a 2-5 scorecard on the road. Son Heung-Min was at his phenomenal best, and so was his partner in crime Harry Kane.
The former slotted in four goals in a row, all assisted by the lanky Kane. And as a cherry on top, Harry fired in one goal as well to go along with his four assists.
Suffice it to say that Jose Mourinho’s men are firing on all cylinders, and with the arrival of Gareth Bale as well, there’s no telling as to where the ceiling is for the club this season.
The team would surely love to keep the momentum going, and they have the perfect opportunity coming up for it.
In this EFL Cup fixture, they are taking on a team from the fourth tier of English football, and considering that the Spurs just scored five goals against the Saints, one of the most competitive teams in the Premier League – this upcoming encounter should be a cakewalk for Mourinho’s men.
It’s doubtful whether the Portuguese gaffer would field his strongest eleven. Still, they have more than enough firepower to overcome this fourth-tier club.
Likely, expect a comfortable Tottenham win.

Leyton Orient vs Tottenham: Prediction
Jose Mourinho’s men are one of the traditional top-six teams in the English Premier League – the best, and probably the toughest competition in the continent. They regularly lock horns with some of the best teams in the world.
After barely managing to qualify for Europa League via a sixth-place finish in 2019-20, the team has set ambitious objectives for this season, and by the looks of things, the squad is slowly starting to click.
They still do need some huge wins to build confidence, and this match-up against a team from the League Two would be a massive help.
Count on Mou and his men to wreak havoc to the lowly Leyton Orient this Tuesday.
