Anzhi Makhachkala vs. Tottenham Hotspur: Lineups and match thread

Pete Norton

Come chat with Cartilage Free Captain as Tottenham travel away to take on Anzhi in the UEFA Europa League.

Happy Spursday, Spursland! Today, Tottenham Hotspur take on Anzhi Makhachkala in the UEFA Europa League. Between our matchday 1 win and Anzhi's horrible form, I'm feeling good about this one.

Here are our lineups.

I'll add in Anzhi lineups when I see them. Not that you'll recognize most of the players on post-firesale Anzhi.

I'm happy that we're finding time for guys who need some time. Jermain Defoe gets a chance to start and score some goals against a poor team before an England squad announcement, so he'll keep his mouth shut about becoming first choice for a while. Kaboul, Lamela and Sandro still need some games to get up to full speed, while Zeki and Vlad should probably just be Europa League starters for the sake of getting them playing time.

Kickoff is at 5pm UK, 9 pm local, 12 pm ET from Russia. You can catch the game on ITV channel 4 in the UK, FOX Sports 1 in the US and Sportsnet One in Canada. The game is also streaming on the streaming platforms of those three networks, as well as ESPN3.
