Tottenham Hotspur vs. Arsenal: North London Derby Live Game Thread

I may not hate the Arse as I explained yesterday, but I still want to beat them. I still want to beat them more than I want to beat most teams. It's a derby, after all! Even if they weren't local rivals, they're always just barely ahead of us in the table. That team would become a rival anyway. 

Okay, enough with the sentimental stuff. There's a football match to play. Here are your lineups.

Tottenham Hotspur lineup (4-4-1-1): Gomes / Assou-Ekotto, Gallas, Kaboul, Hutton / Bale, Modric, Jenas, Lennon / van der Vaart / Crouch

Arsenal lineup (4-3-3): Fabianski / Clichy, Squillaci, Koscielny, Sagna / Song, Denilson, Fabregas / Nasri, Arshavin, Chamakh

Our lack of a defensive midfielder seriously worries me. Palacios and Defoe are both available off the bench and I'd be shocked if both don't feature at some point. Looking at these lineups, I feel like we're going to see the Cesc Fabregas show today. I really hope that I'm wrong, but it's Jenas.

The game starts at 7:45 ET in the United States and can be seen on ESPN2 and with Adrian Healy on the call. Obviously, we'll have play by play coverage right here and your commentary is not only welcome, but encouraged.
