Tottenham Hotspur vs. Tromso: Lineups and match thread

Jamie McDonald

Come chat with Cartilage Free Captain as Tottenham Hotspur take on Tromso in the Europa League.

Happy Spursday, Spursland! Today, Tottenham Hotspur takes on Norwegian side Tromso in the UEFA Europa League. We came pretty close to winning this competition last year and lost. It stunk. This year, we have a deeper team and can compete on all fronts while rotating a lot. Yay!

Here's your starting lineup.

I'm a bit surprised at Hugo Lloris getting the nod over Brad Friedel, who I just assumed was going to be our goalkeeper for the cups and Europa League again. I'm expecting Jermain Defoe to fill that role on the other end of the pitch. I'm happy we're getting Kyle Walker a rest and starts for Erik Lamela and Lewis Holtby.

Here's Tromso's lineup.

Kickoff is just after 8 p.m. local time, 3 p.m. ET from White Hart Lane. You can catch the game on ITV 4 in the UK, FOX Sports 1 in the US and Sportsnet regional networks in Canada. It's also streaming legally on ITV streaming, ESPN3 and Sportsnet World Online.

This is your match thread, so chat away.
