Tottenham Hotspur vs. Sunderland: Lineup and Live Match Thread

Chris Brunskill

Tottenham Hotspur welcome the Black Cats of Sunderland to White Hart Lane on Monday Night Football.

It appears that Tim Sherwood is in full-on Honey Badger mode for Tottenham Hotspur's Barclay's Premier League match against Sunderland. Tottenham need three points in order to keep pressure on the top four, but instead, Tim Sherwood seems to be making an effort to experiment.

Now, in theory, a 4-3-3 lineup with a midfield of Lennon/Chadli, Paulinho, and Eriksen might be interesting. And a 4-4-2 with Paulinho and Eriksen in the middle would probably be perfectly fine against Sunderland. Instead, I'm pretty sure that Sherwood will play Chadli in the center of the park, because reasons. Nabil Bentaleb is on the bench, so that's good, but he's there with Sandro, which is considerably less good.

Sunderland are sending out what might be a back three. So two strikers against three centerbacks. This is going to be incredibly boring. I hate this match already.

The game kicks off at 8:00 PM GMT (3:00 PM ET) from White Hart Lane and can be seen live on Sky Sports 1 in the UK, NBCSN in the US, TSN in Canada, and Fox Sports 3 in Australia. Enjoy and come on you Spurs!
