"Ashley Young goes close with the first effort here after good work from Anderson in midfield. Young's shot from the right side of the area swerved just wide into the side netting with some United fans in the oppisite end thinking the ball had found a way into the net."
"Tottenham are immediately on the front foot as Aaron Lennon races down the right touchline before squaring. Gylfi Sigurdsson’s initial strike is blocked before Jermain Defoe fires wide from 12 yards when he should hit the target."
"Tim Sherwood has taken his seat on the home bench here at White Hart Lane for the first time. He has chosen to forego a suit today and is wearing a tracksuit and trainers. I expect to see him on the touchline giving plenty of instructions to the players."
"The traffic outside the ground means the Britannia Stadium is still filling up. The teams are out now as the wind and rain ascends down on to the pitch. Ryan Shawcross rallies the home fans behind the goal in the Boothen End as we begin this battle to earn a place in the last four of the Capital One Cup."
"The teams have finished their warm-ups here at White Hart Lane and the crowd is filling up ahead of this London derby, which is a complete sell-out in this 36,000 capacity stadium. Andre Villas-Boas is afforded just three mentions in today’s programme, including one half-hearted farewell from Michael Dawson in the captain’s column. The atmosphere is building nicely here as we we wait for the players to emerge from the tunnel."

Also taking place tonight is the second semi-final of the Club World Cup involving Raja Casablanca and Atletico Mineiro. The winner will meet Bayern Munich in the final on Saturday, so all to play for then!
That match is kicking off now and you can follow it here.
You may have noticed Wayne Rooney is not in United's squad tonight. The official line was that he is apparently being rested, however, David Moyes has just confirmed that he is missing this evening through injury. He hopes to have the striker available over Christmas, though.
In case you are wondering, the draw for the Capital One Cup semi-finals takes place after the conclusion of tonight's matches at around 21:45 GMT.
First-leg ties are to be played during the week commencing January 6, 2014, while second-leg ties are to be played during the week commencing January 20, 2014.
"Good evening from White Hart Lane as Tottenham start a new era with a Capital One Cup quarter-final clash against West Ham. Andre Villas-Boas was sacked on Monday and interim head coach Tim Sherwood has made an immediate mark by making six changes to the side hammered 5-0 by Liverpool. Spurs, so poor going forward this season, will play in an attacking 4-4-2 formation, with Emmanuel Adebayor making an immediate return to the side having fallen out with Villas-Boas. West Ham themselves make seven changes to the team that started in Saturday’s goalless draw with Sunderland - and they will be well backed by 5,000 visiting supporters in the Park Lane end to my right."
"Mark Hughes makes four changes from the side which claimed a point at Hull in the league on Saturday. Sorensen, Pieters, Palacios and Walters all come in against a Manchester United team which includes Smalling, Anderson and Young. Zaha is again a substitute tonight but there is no place for Rooney on the United bench."
Stoke: Sorensen; Cameron, Shawcross, Wilson, Pieters; Walters, Palacios, Ireland, Whelan, Assaidi; Crouch.
Subs: Begovic, Muniesa, Pennant, Jones, Arnautovic, Adam, Wilkinson.
Manchester United: De Gea; Rafael, Smalling, Evans, Evra; Valencia, Cleverley, Jones, Anderson, Young; Welbeck.
Subs: Johnstone, Chicharito, Nani, Fletcher, Büttner, Zaha, Kagawa.
Tottenham: Lloris; Walker, Chiriches, Capoue, Rose; Lennon, Dembele, Sigurdsson, Townsend; Adebayor, Defoe.
Subs: Friedel, Fredericks, Fryers, Chadli, Eriksen, Holtby, Soldado.
West Ham: Adrian; O'Brien, Rat, Collins, McCartney; Diarra, Taylor, Collison, J.Cole, Jarvis; C.Cole.
Subs: Jaaskelainen, Noble, Diame, Demel, Morrison, Maiga, Chambers.
"Manchester United arrive at the Britannia Stadium looking to join neighbours Manchester City and Sunderland in the hat for the semi-final of the Capital One Cup, which would be a great boost for David Moyes who looks to win silverware in his first season in charge.
"Stoke have improved of late and there is a strong crowd behind them as they themselves look to make it to the last four. The hosts will be in confident mood after gaining some consistancy of late - helped largely by that dramatic 3-2 victory over Chelsea here earlier this month. The wind is swirling round here as the atmosphere builds and you get the impression this is going to be a very exciting evening in the Cup."
Stoke's last victory over United came in the League Cup back in 1993, while the Red Devils have won ten of the last 11 meetings between the two sides.
David Moyes will be hoping to build this evening on United's two straight wins, against Aston Villa and Shakhtar Donetsk, following their two straight home defeats against Everton and Newcastle. With the Red Devils struggling in the league, the Capital One Cup could be a great chance for Moyes to win some silverware in his debut season at Old Trafford. It won't be easy, however, as Stoke pushed United all the way when the two teams met in October - Moyes' men scored twice in the final 12 minutes to win 3-2.

Tim Sherwood will be taking charge of Spurs tonight following Andre Villas-Boas' sacking earlier in the week. Goal understands that the club could be willing to give the job permanently to the former captain if he impresses, so Sherwood will be desperate to secure a result. The Hammers, however, won 3-0 at White Hart Lane in October and will surely be confident of achieving something similar again this evening.

Manchester City brushed aside Leicester City with ease as they ran out 3-1 winners, however, despite taking the lead, Chelsea were taken into extra-time by Sunderland, with Ki Sung-Yueng bagging the winner to give the Black Cats a 2-1 win, taking them into the last four.
