It is the one of five Carabao Cup ties on the night, the rest having been scheduled 24 hours earlier.

Three of the five matches involve London sides drawn at home in Spurs, Arsenal (vs Brentford) and West Ham (vs Macclesfield).

So why are Spurs hosting the game at Milton Keynes?

The decision was taken as Wembley is unavailable and the club’s new stadium is not ready because of safety issues.

What do Watford think of the decision?

Watford had hoped to play the tie at Vicarage Road but the EFL ruled in Spurs’ favour. Instead they must travel to a ground that is 53 miles north of Tottenham’s White Hart Lane home.

Are Tottenham playing any other games outside of the Premier League at Wembley?

Yes. The club have already confirmed that their three home Champions League group games will be played at Wembley.
