Tottenham Hotspur return to Premier League action today against Manchester United in hopes of righting the ship after their 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City, last week.
Andre Villas-Boas sends out the following team:
Today's team: Lloris; Walker, Chiriches, Dawson, Vertonghen; Paulinho, Sandro; Lennon, Dembele, Chadli; Soldado #THFC— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) December 1, 2013
Subs today: Friedel, Kaboul, Capoue, Holtby, Sigurdsson, Townsend, Defoe #THFC— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) December 1, 2013
Is this a 4-3-3? Is Dembele playing as the number 10? Why is Erik Lamela not even on the bench? I don't like this lineup at all.
Here's United's team:
Confirmed #mufc XI: De Gea; Smalling, Vidic, Evans, Evra; Valencia, Cleverley, Jones, Kagawa, Welbeck; Rooney.— Manchester United (@ManUtd) December 1, 2013
#mufc subs: Lindegaard, Rafael, Anderson, Fellaini, Nani, Young, Hernandez— Manchester United (@ManUtd) December 1, 2013
Interesting that Danny Welbeck has been recalled. I'm not sure on the shape for United here. Might be 4-4-2 or 4-4-1-1, or possibly 4-2-3-1. I really have no idea. I'm blaming the fact that it's super early here.
Kickoff is at noon local time (7:00 AM ET).The match can be seen live on NBC Sports Net in the US and BBC One/BT Sport 1 in the UK. As always, no links to alternative viewing means in the comments and comply with all the other community rules. Come on you Spurs!
