Quiz! Can you name the line-ups from Tottenham's last trophy win? (2008 League Cup Final)

Tottenham fans

The League Cup is just a distraction. When you’re competing in the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup, it gets in the way: it tires out already over-stretched players, and runs the risk of injury. No one takes it seriously (oh shut up, Manchester City).

That is, unless you win it (shut up, Man City). Then, it’s really important. A morale booster. Something for the fans. Silverware.

So yes, losing to a League Two side is not great. And winning a competition, even the League Cup, is Actually Good.

To cheer Spurs fans up today, then, let’s re-live the classic 2008 Carling Cup Final, where Tottenham overcame Chelsea in injury time to win 2-1. Managerial heavyweights Juande Ramos and Avram Grant were in the dugouts that day, and it remains the last time that the Lilywhites lifted a cup.

We’re giving you six minutes to name as many players in the starting line-ups (plus subs) from both sides as you can. Send us a screenshot of your score to get the chance of a @FourFourTwo (opens in new tab) retweet: it’s like a trophy.
