Well Spursland, we've already received some pretty dire news from Tottenham Hotspur so far today. In case you missed it, both Younes Kaboul and Harry Redknapp will not be at the match tonight at Anfield. Kaboul is still working on overcoming a knee injury and Harry Redknapp's flight to Liverpool got cancelled because of weather. Joe Jordan and Kevin Bond will take charge in Redknapp's absence.

Kenny Daglish welcomes striker Luis Suarez back into his Liverpool squad following the Uraguyan's return from his racism ban, but will start the match on the bench. Jose Enrique has an injured hamstring and will not play and is replaced in the lineup by Martin Kelly.

Weather could play an interesting factor in tonight's match. Apparently, it is very foggy at Anfield. The officials have decided that the match can go ahead, but it will be interesting to see just how much the weather affects the players and the officials tonight.

Tottenham XI (4-2-3-1): Friedel; Walker, Dawson, King, Assou-Ekotto; Livermore, Parker; Kranjcar, Modric, Bale; Adebayor.

Subs: Cudicini, Bongani, Nelsen, Rose, Luongo, Lancaster, Saha.

Liverpool XI (4-4-2): Reina; Johnson, Agger, Skrtel, Kelly; Spearing, Kuyt, Gerrard, Adam; Carroll, Bellamy.

Subs: Doni, Suarez, Hendo, Coates, Downing, Carra, Aurelio.

The match kicks off at 8:00 local time (3:00 ET) and will be available on Sky Sports 1 in the UK, ESPN2 and ESPN3 in the United States, TSN 2 in Canada. That means no alternative means in the comments. Keep that nonesense to Twitter and e-mail.
