Happy Spursday, Spursland! Tottenham Hotspur play Newcastle United today, if you didn't know. Chelsea and Liverpool dropped points today, so this is a huge game for the Magpies. Arsenal grabbed a late winner through TH14. Manchester United won earlier, so we're in need of three points to keep pace in the title race. This is your live match thread, here are your lineups.

Tottenham Hotspur lineup (4-4-2): Friedel; Walker, Dawson, King, Assou-Ekotto; Kranjcar, Modric, Parker, Bale; Adebayor, Saha

Substitutes from: Cudicini, Bongani, Nelsen, Rose, Livermore, Lennon, Defoe

Newcastle United lineup (4-4-2): Krul; Simpson, Williamson, Coloccini, Santon; Obertan, Guthrie, Perch, Gutierrez; Ba, Cisse

Substitutes from: Elliot, Ferguson, Gosling, Abeid, Ben Arfa, Lovenkrands, Sh. Ameobi

That front two of Newcastle looks formidable, but their midfield looks a whole lot less threatening without Yohan Cabaye and Cheik Tiote. It's great to see Aaron Lennon and Jermain Defoe on the bench, and they'll be big if we're not ahead late.

Kickoff is at 12:30 p.m. ET, 5:30 p.m. local time. You can catch the game on FOX Soccer Channel in the USA, Sportsnet World in Canada and ESPN in the UK. Please, no discussion of alternative means. COYS!
