London rivals Man City and Burnley meet in the fourth round of the League Cup, as their congested fixture lists continue.
Burnley reached the final 16 by thrashing Barnsley, 6-0, in the third round. Kai Havertz scored his first three goals as a member of the Blues, while Tammy Abraham, Ross Barkley and Olivier Giroud also scored.
Man City, meanwhile, was given a pass into the fourth round after its previous opponent, Leyton Orient, was hit with an outbreak of COVID-19 and could not play.

The match is a rematch of the 2015 League Cup final, which Burnley won, 2-0. Jose Mourinho, now Man City’s manager, was coaching Burnley at the time. That title was Burnley’s most recent one in the competition, with the Blues winning it five times in their history–good for a tie for third-most behind Liverpool (eight) and Manchester City (seven).
Man City has won the competition four times, its last triumph coming in 2008. Mourinho has indicated that it’ll be tough for Spurs to field a competitive squad, given the requirements of the team in Premier League in Europa League play and the tightened fixture list.
“I would like to fight for the Carabao (League) Cup but I don’t think I can,” Mourinho told reporters in his prematch comments. “We have a game on Thursday that gives us not as much money as the Champions League but the group phase of the Europa League gives us a certain amount that for a club like us is very important.”
The winner will advance to the quarterfinals.
