The League Cup final in April could be the only way Tottenham can salvage their season – and they will be desperate for fans to be in attendance.
That is according to ex-Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after Sky Sports revealed that the government could make a call on the match being used as a test event for the return of supporters next week.
Spurs will face Man City in the final after advancing past Chelsea, Stoke City and Brentford in previous rounds.
The EFL is optimistic that up to 8,000 fans could be in attendance on 25 April as Spurs look to win their first silverware in 13 years.
Campbell highlighted Tottenham’s difficult time of late and claimed that the League Cup could be a silver lining in an otherwise erratic campaign.
He told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs: “After a tough week, they went and beat Aston Villa. Now there’s a break even though I’m sure they’d like to have had more games. That’s just the way football is.
“They’ll come back and before you know it they’re in the League Cup final against Man City. I think that’s gonna define their season having been knocked out of the Europa League.
“If they can win that they will have had a decent season. Whether I like it or not, winning trophies is what it’s all about. I don’t give them much hope but they do have a little chance.”
Spurs will be hoping to prevent City from winning a fourth straight League Cup when the two teams meet at Wembley.
It will be the 26th time Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola have met each other as managers and the second time they have encountered one another in a final.
