Tottenham Hotspur welcome Bolton Wanderers to White Hart Lane this Saturday. This is a match Spurs really should be winning. Kevin wrote this preview the other day and it says pretty much everything that needs to be said about this match.

Ledley King picked up a knock in training on Friday and will be replaced in the starting XI by William Gallas. If I'm not mistaken this is the first time we'll have seen Gallas play in the league this season. Luka Modric is back in the XI after missing out last week and Rafael Van der Vaart is fit, but will start the game on the bench. Scott Parker will be sporting the captain's armband today, which, as we all know, is the best accessory to go with perfect hair.

Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-4-2): Friedel; Walker, Gallas, Kaboul, Assou-Ekotto; Lennon, Modric, Parker, Bale; Adebayor, Defoe.

Subs: Cudicini, Bassong, Corluka, Livermore, Pienaar, Pavlyuchenko, Van der Vaart.

Bolton Wanderers XI (4-4-2): Jaakelainen; Boyata, Cahill, Knight, Robinson; Mark Davies, Muamba, Reo-Coker, Eagles; Klasnic, Kevin Davies

Subs: Petrov, Steinsson, Tancay Sanli, Pratley, Ngog, Bogdan, Kakuta
