Good news: Jermain Defoe is fit to start. He was a doubt, but he's in the starting XI. He scored five goals in a reserve match this week, so this is awesome. Now, two pieces of bad news, Spursland: Luka Modric is out injured. No idea how or when this happened. Tottenham Hotspur never tells us about this crap. Jerks. Other piece of bad news is that I forgot this game was a 10:00 am ET game until an hour ago. Oops! Here are your lineups for Spurs vs. West Bromwich Albion.
Tottenham Hotspur Lineup (4-4-2): Friedel; Assou-Ekotto, King, Kaboul, Walker; Bale, Parker, Sandro, Lennon; Defoe, Adebayor
Subs: Cudicini, Bassong, Fredericks, Gallas, Livermore, Pienaar, Kane
West Bromwich Albion Lineup: Foster, Reid, McAuley, Olsson, Shorey, Brunt, Mulumbu, Morrison, Thomas, Gera, Long
That WBA lineup is a copy-pasta and I'm too lazy to look up what formation that is. Y'all can figure it out. Kickoff is at 10:00 am ET. IDGAF about alternative discussions today, wink wink nudge nudge.
