Spurs Suffer Carabao Cup Embarrassment by Colchester

Tottenham suffered Carabao Cup humiliation on Tuesday, as they were knocked out of the competition by League Two side Colchester United.

Last season's Champions League finalists named a changed side at the JobServe Community Stadium on Tuesday, but still included regulars like Eric Dier, Davinson Sanchez, Ben Davies, Lucas Moura and Dele Alli, among others.

But Spurs were unable to score on their fourth-tier opposition over 90 minutes, with the match entering a penalty shootout tied at 0-0.

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

Remarkably, Tottenham are not the first Premier League side that Colchester have knocked out of this year's Carabao Cup.

Colchester also defeated Crystal Palace in the second round last month, prevailing 5-4 on penalties after again holding their opponents scoreless over 90 minutes.
