Aston Villa vs. Tottenham Hotspur, 2013 League Cup: Lineups and match thread

Clive Rose

Time to take the first step towards winning a trophy. War dang Cockerel.

Happy Spursday, Spursland! Today, Tottenham Hotspur takes on a very battered Aston Villa team in the League Cup. It's a trophy! Let's try to win it.

Tottenham Hotspur are the last people to have Spurs' lineups and tweet them. Go figure that out. Aston Villa already has our team sheet and theirs.

I'm definitely happy to see Zeki Fryers and Vlad Chiriches get their debuts. I expected to see Kyle Naughton get a start to get some more work in at left back, but I'll take a Zeki appearance. It's good to see Kane get a start as well, though I'm not sure how I feel about the 4-4-2. Unless Kane is starting on the wing? It's an odd setup. It's nicet o see Nacer Chadli back on the bench too.

Kickoff is at 7:45 p.m. local time, 2:45 p.m. ET from Villa Park. It's not on TV in the US or UK, but it is on TV in other places, so you can figure it out. Please do not post links to illegal streams here. Please do post links to legal radio feeds.
