Tottenham Hotspur vs. Manchester United: Lineups and Live Match Thread

Alex Livesey

Nothing like an early kickoff after making a trip to the Arctic Circle on Thursday, right?

Tottenham Hotspur return to Premier League action today against Manchester United in hopes of righting the ship after their 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City, last week.

Andre Villas-Boas sends out the following team:

Is this a 4-3-3? Is Dembele playing as the number 10? Why is Erik Lamela not even on the bench? I don't like this lineup at all.

Here's United's team:

Interesting that Danny Welbeck has been recalled. I'm not sure on the shape for United here. Might be 4-4-2 or 4-4-1-1, or possibly 4-2-3-1. I really have no idea. I'm blaming the fact that it's super early here.

Kickoff is at noon local time (7:00 AM ET).The match can be seen live on NBC Sports Net in the US and BBC One/BT Sport 1 in the UK. As always, no links to alternative viewing means in the comments and comply with all the other community rules. Come on you Spurs!
