Tottenham Hotspur vs. Hull City Tigers: Lineup and live match thread

Uncle Menno

Tottenham Hotspur welcome the Hull City Tigers to White Hart Lane and will be hoping for a good result in order to keep pace at the top of the table.

Tottenham Hotspur return home to White Hart Lane for the first of two matches against the Hull City Tigers in the span of three days. This Premier League fixture will be hugely important for both sides, as Spurs can go into third with a victory, while a Hull City win would take them to level on points with Manchester United.

The Tottenham lineup looks pretty much how you might expect it to look, with one notable change.

That's right, Aaron Lennon returns to the starting line-up (at the expense of Gylfi Sigurdsson) and it seems likely that he and Townsend will swap wings occasionally, much as Lennon and Lamela did in Spurs' Europa League. Danny Rose is apparently still not 100% fit. Given that he was at 90% two months ago, I would imagine that he's about 93.4% fit now. Spurs have no central defenders on the bench either.

Hull City manager Steve Bruce sends out the following lineup:

David Myler is forced into the starting lineup due to Jake Livermore being ineligible to play against his parent club and an injury to Robert Koren. Steve Harper makes his first Premier League for Hull City after signing from Newcastle United in the summer.

The match kicks off at 4:00 PM local time (12:00 ET) from White Hart Lane. You can watch the game on NBC Sports Live Extra in the US and Sportsnet World Online in Canada. If you're in the UK, then it appears you won't be able to find them game live on TV. Regardless, please keep discussions of alternate viewing means confined to Twitter and/or e-mail.

Enjoy the match and come on you Spurs!
