Spurs suffered their second home defeat in a row in the Premier League on Sunday when they were beaten 1-0 by West Bromwich Albion.
However, Andros Townsend's involvement remains in doubt, after he missed the defeat to West Brom with a dead leg.
Meanwhile, Nottingham Forest's bright start to the season leaves them at the top of the Championship table ahead of their visit to White Hart Lane.
The visitors have won five of their last seven matches in all competitions, but head into this match off the back of a goalless draw with Millwall.
Both clubs have previously lifted the League Cup four times.
Possible starting lineups
Tottenham: Vorm, Davies, Dier, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Lennon, Dembele, Bentaleb, Paulinho, Soldado, Kane
Forest: Darlow, Lichaj, Mancienne, Wilson, Fox, Vaughan, Burke, Lansbury, Paterson, Antonio, Assombalonga
Sports Mole says: 2-1
