Happy FA Cup day, everyone! Tottenham take a trip to Leeds to play Leeds United, a massive club that has fallen on hard times in recent years. Still, when you head to Elland Road, you should expect a few things: 1) stiff resistance, 2) fantastic attendance, and 3) football hooligans.
AVB is putting out a strong side for this one, but Brad Friedel gets the start ahead of Hugo Lloris, Kyle Naughton gets the start at RB ahead of Kyle Walker, and Tom "Thudderball" Huddlestone starts in front of the rested Moussa Dembele. Jermain Defoe is reportedly injured and does not make the side; Clint Dempsey will start as the lone striker.
For Leeds, their attack is spearheaded by El Hadji Diouf, who made 55 appearances for Liverpool, and has had stints at Sunderland, Bolton, and Blackburn.
Tottenham Hotspur: Friedel, Naughton, Caulker, Vertonghen, Assou-Ekotto, Huddlestone, Parker, Lennon, Bale, Sigurdsson, Dempsey
Subs: Gomes, Walker, Townsend, Livermore, Dembele, Dawson, Obika
Leeds United: Ashdown, Byram, Peltier, Lees, White, Green, Brown, Austin, Varney, Diouf, McCormack
Subs: Kenny, Pearce, Tonge, Norris, Somma, Hall & Dawson
