Happy Spursday, Spursland! Tottenham Hotspur travel to Cumbria to take on League One side Carlisle United in the English League Cup today, which is now known as the Capital One Cup for sponsorship reasons. Beer sponsors? Awesome. Credit card sponsors? Ick.

Unsurprisingly, Tottenham are playing a mix of senior and youth/reserve players, with only three first choice (or close to first choice) players in the starting XI. Hugo Lloris and Brad Friedel are both out of the 18, as are Gareth Bale, Moussa Dembele and William Gallas. Here's the lineup.

Tottenham Hotspur starting lineup (4-3-3?): Carlo Cudicini; Jan Vertonghen, Steven Caulker, Michael Dawson, Adam Smith; Tom Huddlestone, Ryan Mason, Gylfi Sigurdsson; Andros Townsend, Clint Dempsey, Iago Falque

Bench: Gomes, Aaron Lennon, Jermain Defoe, Kyle Walker, Sandro, Tom Carroll, Jon Obika

Carlisle United starting lineup: To be announced.
