If Tottenham do not perform well in their Carabao Cup third round tie with Watford, their fans will look in the direction of heavyweight boxer, Anthony Joshua.

The Premier League club have had to apply for permission to play their match at the MK Dons’ Stadium MK.

This is because the heavyweight title fight between Anthony Joshua and Alexander Povetkin will hold on September 22 at Wembley.

We all know Wembley has been Spurs’ temporary home since the ongoing construction of Spurs’ White Hart Lane stadium commenced.

Round three ties are scheduled to take place week commencing September 24 and Spurs did not wish to reverse the draw, made on Thursday evening.

“We have applied to the EFL board for special dispensation to play this tie at Stadium MK.

“We appreciate that Stadium MK may not be an ideal destination for every fan to get to on a weekday evening.

“However, the club felt it would not be beneficial to request a reverse of the fixture as it would have resulted in no more than a 10 per cent allocation of tickets for our supporters at the venue of our opponents,” the club stated.

The request is expected to be considered at the EFL board meeting on September 6.
