Welcome to your live match thread for the second North London Derby of the 2010-2011 EPL season between Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal FC. Both teams have slight surprises in their lineups, and that should make for a very interesting game. Harry Redknapp and Arsene Wenger both know how big this game is, and as a result, they both might be out-thinking themselves. Wenger has dropped Jack Wilshere, while Harry has narrowed up his side to make things tough on Arsenal in the middle. Here are your lineups:
Tottenham Hotspur lineup (4-4-2): Gomes; Corluka, Gallas, Dawson, Assou-Ekotto; Van der Vaart, Modric, Huddlestone, Bale; Crouch, Pavlyuchenko
Arsenal lineup (4-2-3-1): Szczesny; Sagna, Djourou, Koscielny, Clichy; Song, Diaby; Walcott, Fabregas, Nasri; Van Persie
What do you make of this, Spurs fans? The old 4-4-2 makes an appearance, and without Aaron Lennon. I've got a feeling that won't go over well with a lot of you, but I can't fault Harry for wanting to play a possession game. You can catch the game at 2:45 pm ET, 7:45 pm local time, and it's on ESPN2 and ESPN3.com in the United States.
