Spurs' 2015 League Cup Final Starting XI - Where Are They Now?

christian eriksen next club odds

Hugo Lloris

France captain, Hugo Lloris, started the game in between the posts for Spurs in 2015 and has been the club's number one for almost a decade. The season after Tottenham Hotspur's League Cup Final loss, Lloris was handed the armband by manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The Frenchman is still at the club over five years later, having made over 360 appearances at Tottenham, making himself a modern day great.

Kyle Walker

The only player from the list that will be playing for the opposing team in this weekend's Carabao Cup final, Kyle Walker started right-back for Spurs in their last League Cup final.

The defender was gradually solidifying himself as one of the best full-backs in the country in 2015, and just two years later, he would make a £50m move to Manchester City. The move made him one of the most expensive transfers in the world at the time, and he has since gone on to make 178 appearances and rising for the Citizens.

Eric Dier

Eric Dier was in his second season at the club when Spurs reached their last Carabao Cup final. The defensive midfielder was brought in the season before in a £4m transfer from Sporting Lisbon and proved to be a good partner in the midfield with Moussa Dembele.

He was, however, utilized as a central defender for the final against Chelsea back in 2015. Dier is still a regular starter at Tottenham, having made almost 275 appearances since he joined in 2014 and he signed a new contract last summer which will keep him at the club until 2024.

Jan Vertonghen

Dier was partnered in the centre of defence with another player who has made his fair share of appearances in north London, Jan Vertonghen. The Belgian centre-back had endured a tough start to the 2015 season, with new boss Pochettino deciding not to favour Vertonghen straight away.

Vertonghen did eventually prove his worth and went on to be the first choice in centre of defence for Tottenham for many seasons, forming a partnership with fellow Belgian Toby Alderweireld. He would leave Spurs in the summer of 2020 after eight years with the club, and he now plays in Portugal for Benfica after being a magnificent servant for the Lilywhites.

Danny Rose

Danny Rose is one of the players that still plays for Tottenham this season, and it can be easy to forget this as he hasn't made a single appearance for the club in almost two years.

The England international has been in and out of the team since the 2015 final, and struggled for game time under Jose Mourinho. He spent the second half of the 2019/20 season on loan at Newcastle United where he played 11 times in the league.

Although Rose had not been included by Mourinho in Tottenham’s Premier League and Europa League squads this season, he hasn't appeared. The left-back may now have a chance to forge his way back into the Tottenham squad next season, should he impress under a new manager.

Nabil Bentaleb

For Nabil Bentaleb, 2015 could be considered one of his most successful seasons in his career so far. The Algerian international was in his second season as a professional and played a vital part in the Spurs campaign.

However, next season he struggled to make the Tottenham team, and eventually found himself being sent out on loan to Schalke for the remainder of the season, who eventually bought him. After a successful start to his Schalke career, Bentaleb was demoted twice to Schalke’s U23 team for disciplinary reasons in 2019, and in January 2020, he was sent on loan to Newcastle.

Things really haven't gone well for Bentaleb since, as he has made just nine starts for Schalke this year.

Ryan Mason

Well, as of a few days ago, Ryan Mason is now the manager of the club he played the 2015 League Cup final for.

Since Mourino's departure, the ex-Spurs midfielder has taken the reigns as interim head coach at just the age of 29 where he would have been reaching his peak years and it truly is a sad story for this once-promising player.

Mason had to retire back in 2018, after a clash of heads with Gary Cahill in 2017 when he was at Hull City, and he moved almost immediately into a coaching role with Spurs, where he became the head of player development in 2020, before moving into the manager position when Mourinho left.

An operation after his clash with Cahill would leave Mason with 14 metal plates in his skull and 28 screws holding them in place. He also had 45 staples and now has a six-inch scar across his head.

Andros Townsend

England international Andros Townsend is currently still playing in the Premier League six years later, but is now playing under Roy Hodgson at Crystal Palace.

Shortly after his League Cup final appearance, Townsend fell out of favour at White Hart Lane and made a £12m move to Newcastle United. After Newcastle’s relegation to the Championship, Townsend transferred to Crystal Palace £13m, where he has since made 179 appearances.

It's been a topsy-turvy career for him, which has witnessed England caps and vital goals in qualification to Euro 2016 on top of an almighty nine loan spells before he was 22.

Christian Eriksen

After getting snapped up from Ajax in 2013, Christian Eriksen became an instant hit, scoring 10 goals in 36 appearances in his first season at the club. Eriksen stayed with Tottenham until January 2020 and played in their Champions League final against Liverpool in 2019.

The Dane left Spurs for £10m with a short time remaining on his contract to join Italian giants Inter Milan, where he is now set to win Serie A.

Eriksen is still in Italy and at 29, his best years could still come.

Nacer Chadli

Nacer Chadli has had spells at numerous clubs since his appearance for Tottenham in the final after falling out of form, he transferred to West Bromwich Albion, followed by spells at Monaco and Anderlecht.

He is now in his first season with Turkish club Istanbul Basaksehir, where he has scored two goals in 15 appearances, and it really hasn't gone well for him since leaving north London.

However, somehow, he remains in the plans for Belgium and has been called up to recent squads ahead of Euro 2020.

Harry Kane

2014/15 was a breakthrough season for Harry Kane, who scored 31 goals in 51 games, including three in the League Cup. Kane has since developed into arguably the best striker around, who has proven himself for both club and country.

The England striker has scored 219 goals in 330 appearances and is currently the second-top goalscorer in Tottenham Hotspur's history, only behind Jimmy Greaves.

Sadly for Kane, it was announced he won't be fit in time for the League Cup final, and ahead of his 28th birthday, it's looking like he will remain trophyless.
