Tottenham dumped out of Carabao Cup

Tottenham Hotspur were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by League Two side Colchester United on penalties this morning.

Last season’s UEFA Champions League finalists, Spurs, were unable to grab a goal against their fourth-tier opposition during regular time and the match was forced into a penalty shootout with the scores tied at 0-0.

In the shootout, Christian Eriksen and Lucas Moura both failed to convert from the spot, with Colchester defeating their Premier League opposition 4-3 on penalty kicks.

Astonishingly, Colchester also knocked out Crystal Palace in the second round last month, winning 5-4 on penalties, and are now the first lower league team to progress from two penalty shootouts against Premier League sides within the same Carabao Cup campaign since Bradford in 2012-13.

Tottenham will look to turn things around this weekend when they host Southampton at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in Premier League action.
