Tottenham vs Brentford highlights as Sissoko and Son goals seal Carabao Cup final place

Follow all the action right here as Tottenham look to seal a place in the Carabao Cup final with victory over Brentford at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Here are Alasdair's thoughts on that first half from Spurs

You've heard these words before this season but it's not exactly been a classic so far.

Moussa Sissoko's first goal in more than a year - his first shot of the season - looked like it might signal the start of something special.

It didn't and other than a deflected Lucas Moura header that Raya clawed off the line, it's been pretty turgid stuff.

Hugo Lloris hasn't had anything to do at his end of the pitch, other than claim the odd cross and corner, but Spurs aren't using the ball well in the final third.

Son Heung-min has been busy and trying to make something happen, Lucas Moura is yet to really find his rhythm and Harry Kane has been a little greedy in possession, looking for that semi-final goal.

With Jose Mourinho able to use five substitutes tonight we might see changes sooner rather than later as he looks to make the game safe rather than try to hold on to a lead, something that has blown back in Spurs' faces recently.

They've got two flying full-backs but - Reguilon's fine cross for Sissoko aside - they're not using them well enough.

If Tottenham can open up the pitch and get in behind Brentford they'll find more joy like they did with Sissoko's unmarked header.
