Happy Spursday, Spursland! Today, Tottenham Hotspur head to Anfield, where they take on Liverpool. Fortress Anfield is no longer a fortress, really, but we've had super mixed results there. Both teams are looking just a little bit shaky in the middle. Here are the lineups.
#THFC Team: Lloris, Walker, Dawson, Vertonghen, Assou-Ekotto, Parker, Livermore, Sigurdsson, Dembele, Bale & Defoe #COYS— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) March 10, 2013
#LFC v Tottenham: Jones, Johnson, Enrique, Agger, Carragher, Lucas, Gerrard, Downing, Coutinho, Sturridge, Suarez.— Liverpool FC(@LFC) March 10, 2013
We can debate all day about what that Spurs formation is going to look like, but we don't really know. It could be a 4-3-3, it could be 4-2-3-1 with Dembele behind Defoe, or Dembele could be out wide. This is anyone's guess. I'm not sure how I feel about choosing to move Dembele forward and introducing Livermore over starting Holtby, but we'll see how it works out. Liverpool's formation could be called a one- or two-striker formation, depending on what you want to call Luis Suarez.
Kickoff is at 4 p.m. local time, 12 p.m. ET. You can catch the game on Sky Sports 1 in the UK and FOX Soccer Plus in the States.
