CONFIRMED: Tottenham Hotspur v Nottingham Forest line-ups

Here is how Tottenham Hotspur and Nottingham Forest will line up in the League Cup tonight, featuring Michel Vorm and Paulinho.

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to return to winning ways tonight when they host Nottingham Forest in the third round of the League Cup.

The North London club will head into the match at White Hart Lane on the back of a 1-0 shock home defeat to West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League on Sunday.

That loss stretched Tottenham’s winless run in all competitions to three games, and manager Mauricio Pochettino will want his players to bounce back tonight.

The fact that Forest are a Championship club will add extra pressure on Spurs, whose defeat tonight will hit the headlines tomorrow.

Stuart Pearce’s Forest side have made a strong side to the 2014-15 Championship campaign and are currently the division’s leaders.

Forest have picked up 18 points from eight league matches so far, scoring 17 goals in the process, and they will be confident of doing damage to Tottenham tonight.

It promises to be an exciting match at White Hart Lane, and here is how Tottenham and Forest will line up tonight:
