The teams have been confirmed ahead of Tottenham’s Premier League clash with Swansea City at Wembley Stadium.
Mauricio Pochettino has made three changes to the Spurs side that beat Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Kieran Trippier, Moussa Sissoko and Dele Alli come in for Serge Aurier, Mousa Dembele and Ben Davies.
It looks like Jan Vertonghen will play on the left of a back four. Alternatively, Heung-Min Son could be used as a left wing-back, although that didn’t go too well against Chelsea in the FA Cup last season.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to all the team news.

Should have just played Aurier today and Tripps in the cup in midweek… but #COYS 🙌🏼

#thfc Just a bit surprised Pochettino's decided to rest Ben Davies today when the League Cup tie against Barnsley's coming up on Tuesday.

Poch could've rested Davies on Tuesday but don't think fatigue works like that. He'd have seen stats with Davies in the red zone. No risk

Why no Davies? In the form of his life and against his former side. https://t.co/tEMp9D5hPd

Lot of analysis over #THFC team. Maybe something happened to Davies. Either way this is swansea. And we "should" have enough with this team

If it's 3-4-3 with Son at LWB, it failed miserably in the semi final but he as good as played there vs Boro/Swans at WHL. Bigger pitch, tho.

Son playing LWB?🙄🙄 What's wrong with Ben Davies and thought Aurier would retain his place
