Tottenham Hotspur v. Wigan: Lineups and Live Match Thread

Shaun Botterill

Tottenham head to the DW to take revenge on Wiganlona in a must win match for Spurs' Champions League ambitions.

Tottenham look to make amends for their 1-0 home less against Wigan earlier in the season. With Arsenal and Chelsea both not playing until tomorrow, a win today for Spurs sees them leapfrog their London neighbors into third place.

Aaron Lennon is back fit and he starts the match on the bench. Benny has also been dropped to the bench in favor of Kyle Naughton. Jermain Defoe gets the nod ahead of Adebayor, who's not even in the squad today.

But the real big news is that AVB has decided to stick with the 4-3-3 that Spurs deployed at the end of the Man City Match.

Our subs:

So Spurs head into the match with no strikers on the bench. Hopefully Defoe can get the job done. Meanwhile, Wigan line up:

...Figueroa, and Scharner. Whose handball goal was the only blemish on our 9-1 victory a few seasons back. Also of note, because Wigan is not a real football team, they release their lineup from front to back. Please get relegated as soon as possible, Wigan.

Wigan Subs: Al Habsi, Caldwell, Watson, Di Santo, Henriquez, Espinoza, Stam

Kickoff is at 3pm local time (10 am et) and is on Fox Soccer in the US and probably on television in other countries.
