Tottenham Hotspur v. NK Maribor: Lineups and match thread

Shaun Botterill

Come chat with us during Tottenham's battle against the Slovenian champs in the Europa League.

Happy Spursday, Spursland! Tottenham take on NK Maribor today in what could prove to be a must-win match if we want to reach the knock-out stages of the Europa League. Michael Dawson is out of the squad after coming down with an illness and Hugo Lloris, Andros Townsend, and Kyle Naughton come back into the side.

Tottenham Hotspur Starting Lineup: Hugo Lloris; Kyle Walker, Steven Caulker, Jan Vertonghen, Kyle Naughton; Tom Huddlestone, Sandro; Aaron Lennon, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Andros Townsend; Jermain Defoe

NK Maribor Starting Lineup: Handanovic; Mejac, Rajcevic, Arghus, Milec; Mezga, Ibraimi, Cvijanovic, Mertelj; Tavares, Beric

(I probably could have written anything there and you would have believed me, huh?)

So it looks like Spurs have gone with a pretty first choice lineup, which depending on your view of the Europa League, is either a good thing or a bad thing. Whatever your opinion, the mighty AVB is obviously taking this thing seriously, so let's all get behind the team (and pray for no new injuries.) COYS!

Game date/time: Thursday, 1 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. UK

Venue: Ljudski vrt, Maribor, Slovenia

TV: ITV 4 (U.K.), FOX Soccer (U.S.), Sportsnet regional networks (Canada)
