    SON-TURION

    Son Heung-min is Tottenham's top goalscorer in the Premier League so far this season having netted a whopping 11 goals in 14 matches.

    But tonight's clash against Stoke has a special meaning for Son as he will get the chance to reach legendary status at Spurs.

    That is because the star forward will mark a whopping total of 100 goals across all competitions for the north Londoners if he finds the net against the Potters.

    And the South Korea international is more than capable of doing it tonight as he has scored three times in all of the three matches he's competed for Tottenham against Stoke in the past.

    STOKE STATS

    Stoke have had a rather impressive run in the Carabao Cup this season having eliminated two Premier League opponents in Wolves and Aston Villa away as well as League One outfits Blackpool and Gillingham at home.

    The Potters are seventh in the Championship table with 10 points separating them from league leaders Norwich and are currently out of the play-off spots due to a lower goal difference than sixth-placed Middlesbrough.

    Michael O'Neill's men have won nine out of their 20 league matches this season and lost five times.

    Stoke are after a couple of records tonight as they are looking to reach the League Cup semi-final as a non-top-flight club for the first time and become the first non-Premier League side to keep five clean sheets in a row since Preston North End between 1997 and 1999.

    SPURS STATS

    Tottenham eliminated London rivals Chelsea in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup thanks to a 5-4 win on penalties following a 1-1 draw at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

    Spurs are sixth in the Premier League table with six points separating them from leaders Liverpool and only one point keeping them away from the top four.

    The north Londoners have won seven out of their 14 league matches this season and lost three times with their most recent victory occurring on December 6 against local rivals Arsenal.

    Since then Jose Mourinho's men have endured a three-match winless streak which saw them losing their last two outings to Liverpool and Leicester.

    However, Tottenham will be feeling confident ahead of tonight's clash with Stoke as they have won their last five games against the Potters; in fact, four of those victories were by a four-goal margin.

    HEAD-TO-HEAD

    Tottenham and Stoke's first ever encounter took place way back in 1896 during an FA Cup tie that the Potters won comfortably with a score of 5-0.

    Since then, the two sides have faced off 94 times with Spurs winning the lion's share as they count 48 victories compared to the Championship outfit's 25.

    Tottenham and Stoke have only met once before in the Carabao Cup in 2011 when the competition was known as the Carling Cup.

    That match went to a dramatic penalty shoot-out which the Potters won 7-6 following a goalless draw at the Britannia Stadium.

    GOOD AFTERNOON FROM STOKE

    Welcome to our live coverage of the Carabao Cup quarter-final clash between Stoke and Tottenham at the Bet365 Stadium.

    Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is still determined to win silverware for the club and hopes tonight's match will mark the beginning of the end of the north Londoners' 12-year dry spell.

    The Carabao Cup has a rather special meaning for Tottenham as this is the trophy they won most recently in 2008, then known as the Carling Cup.

    However, Mourinho is still expected to rotate against Stoke ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash with Wolves at Molineux.

    It seems like Spurs will be without Giovani Lo Celso, who suffered a hamstring injury against Leicester at the weekend.

    Erik Lamela and Japhet Tanganga are both sidelined as they are nursing an achilles and shoulder injury respectively.

    Stoke, on the other hand, have been stricken by a crisis as they are missing four goalkeepers with starting keeper Adam Davies, Angus Gunn and Niki Maenpaa all injured while Joe Bursik is cup-tied.

    Thus, Potters boss Michael O'Neill will have to choose between Blondy Nna Noukeu, who has no first-team experience, and 37-year-old Andy Lonergan for the No1 spot.

    To make matters worse, the hosts will also be missing three of their most experienced players as John Obi Mikel, Joe Allen and Ryan Shawcross are all sidelined.
