Tottenham Hotspur go into their League Cup game against Brighton this evening, with Mauricio Pochettino having made it clear that he wants to see improvements from last weekend.

Spurs went to sleep after half-time against Newcastle United, which allowed Alan Pardew’s team back into the Premier League game they eventually won 2-1.

Pochettino uses this competition to give fringe players and younger players a chance to impress him and it’s down to them to give him a selection problem ahead of this weekend.

The big team selection talk in the build up to this game has centred around Kyle Naughton, who has recovered well from an ankle problem and has trained well without a problem.

The League Cup is a competition first team star Erik Lamela has revealed, he feels the team can win as they push on trying to win some silverware by the end of the season.
