No Gareth Bale, no Steven Pienaar, no changes with the midfield and forwards. Harry Redknapp has made just one change to the Tottenham Hotspur side that defeated Blackburn Rovers, bringing in Michael Dawson for Sebastien Bassong. Dawson was serving a one match suspension in mid-week, while Bassong was poor against Blackburn. Otherwise, it's the same team to face Bolton.

Rumor has it that Bolton Wanderers are going a little bit unorthodox with their lineup. Looking it it, you would expect Daniel Sturridge to play on the wing with Johan Elmander up top, but the Bolton twitter feed listed it as exactly the opposite. It will be interesting to see who plays where, but I would be surprised to see Sturridge up top with Elmander on the wing, though Elmander does play that position for Sweden on a regular basis due to their depth at striker.

Tottenham Hotspur lineup (4-4-2): Gomes / Assou-Ekotto, Dawson, Gallas, Corluka / Lennon, Jenas, Palacios, van der Vaart / Crouch, Defoe

Bolton Wanderers lineup (4-4-2): Jaaskelainen / Ricketts, Cahill, Knight, Robinson / M. Davies, Taylor, Holden, Sturridge / Elmander, K. Davies

I'm feeling a tough, close game. You guys? Kickoff is at 10 am ET and the game can be seen in the United States on FoxSoccer.tv.
