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

Alex Livesey

Tottenham Hotspur take on second place Manchester City at White Hart Lane today in an attempt to regain some momentum in their hunt for Champions League football.

Happy Spursday, Spursland!

Gareth Bale returns to the lineup for Tottenham Hotspur and the now fit Jermaine Defoe has a place on the bench. Unfortunately, Aaron Lennon did not make the squad today nor did Tom Carroll. Clint Dempsey and Gylfi Sigurdsson stay in the team following their fine runs of form. Finally, Benoit Assou-Ekotto starts at left back.

For City, Roberto Mancini starts Edin Dzeko, who score four goals in City's last visit to White Hart Lane, while Sergio Aguero is on the bench. James Milner is in the lineup today, presumably he'll be shadowing Gareth Bale wherever he goes. David Silva, who missed City's FA Cup semifinal match, it still not fit enough to feature.

Kickoff is at 1:30 local time (8:30 EDT). The match can be seen live on Sky Sports 1 in the UK, on Fox Soccer Channel in the US, and Sportsnet World in Canada.
