Both these sides have played each other a few times in this competition history and Nottingham Forest have a better record in EFL Cup against Spurs.
Nottingham Forest will hope to put their disappointing run in the Premier League behind them when they welcome Tottenham Hotspur to the City Ground for the EFL Cup third-round match. The Wednesday night clash will be an interesting one for various reasons. Even though Tottenham are expected to be the favourites in this encounter, their form in recent league games have been worrisome. Hence, they will most likely focus on the weekend league fixture against Leeds United over the Wednesday night EFL Cup tie.
This should give Nottingham Forest the boost to register an unlikely victory in front of their supporters on Wednesday. However, their own form in the league has been extremely worrying as they are rooted to the foot of the table with just 10 points from 14 games. Hence, they might also rest some of their important players for this clash. Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur’s 2-1 defeat at Liverpool was their third defeat in four league games. They have 26 points from 14 games to sit fourth in the table.
