Tottenham will face either League One or League Two opposition in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

With Jose Mourinho’s side playing in Europe next season, they enter the competition in the third round stage and will travel to either Leyton Orient or Plymouth Argyle after the pair were drawn together in round two.

After some less than helpful Europa League qualifying trips on the horizon, it’s some good news for the Portuguese – although he’ll no doubt be hoping the East Londoners will progress to avoid a long midweek visit to Devon later this month.

Spurs haven’t faced Orient since an injury-time victory at Brisbane Road in the 3rd round of the FA Cup in 2001, whilst it would their first meeting with the Pilgrims since a 5-1 FA Cup win 58 years ago.

The tie will most likely take place on 22 September, which is just two days before Mourinho’s men travel to either Macedonia or Romania in the Europa League 3rd qualifying round, if they beat Plovdiv in the 2nd round.
