Lord Sugar comments on Tottenham Hotspur’s League Cup chances

Lord Sugar seems to suggest that Tottenham Hotspur will not reach the final of the League Cup this season.

Lord Sugar does not believe that Tottenham Hotspur will win the League Cup this season.

The North London club have reached the semi-finals of the competition and will take on Sheffield United over two legs for a place in the final.

The first leg of the tie will be held at Tottenham’s White Hart Lane on January 21, 2015, with Bramall Lane to host the second leg a week later.

Premier League outfit Spurs will be favourites heading into the tie, but former Tottenham chairman Lord Sugar seems to suggest that United, currently in League One, could stage an upset.

Lord Sugar seems quite dismissive of Tottenham’s chances of winning the League Cup, but the fans can still be confident.

Given the current form of Mauricio Pochettino’s side, they will be a force at home when United visit them and could wrap up the tie in the first leg itself.

Winning the League Cup, though, will be tougher, mainly because Tottenham will face either Chelsea or Liverpool in the final.
