The fight for fifth place is on. If Tottenham Hotspur wins today, they're sitting in fifth place, in control of their own destiny going into the final week of the season. If they don't win, Liverpool will likely be going to Europa League while we miss out on European competition. It's a big game, and based on the way the teams have been playing lately, it should be a lot of fun. This is your live match thread and lineups, so let's get to it.

Harry Redknapp has set the team up in the 4-4-1-1 with Rafael van der Vaart behind Peter Crouch, leaving Jermain Defoe and Roman Pavlyuchenko on the bench. Kenny Dalglish has opted for a 4-4-2 with the super scary strike pairing of Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez. So, minimal surprises for both teams.

Oh, by the way. THE CFC RETURNS!

Tottenham Hotspur lineup (4-4-1-1): Gomes; Rose, Dawson, LEDLEY FUCKING KING, Kaboul; Pienaar, Modric, Sandro, Lennon; van der Vaart, Crouch

Liverpool lineup (4-4-2): Reina; Flanagan, Skrtel, Carragher, Johnson; Maxi, Lucas, Spearing, Kuyt; Carroll, Suarez

Let's do this ish.
