Tottenham Hotspur welcome Sunderland to White Hart Lane for the final game of the 2012-13 season. Spurs need a victory to keep their hopes of Champions League Football alive. Can they do it?

Well, the buildup is almost over. We're now less than an hour from kickoff at White Hart Lane. Tottenham need all three points today and a little help from Newcastle if they are to finish in fourth for the second consecutive season and attain Champions League football.

Here are the lineups:

Pretty typical 4-2-3-1 from Spurs. Benoit Assou-Ekotto returns to the starting lineup and Steven Caulker moves to the bench. Meanwhile, Mousa Dembele finds himself among the substitutes, but Tom Carrol is not included in the sqaud.

Sunderland, run out this lineup:

Looks like 4-4-2 from Paolo Di Canio with Connor Wickham and Danny Graham up front. Dangerman Sebastian Larsson appears to be playing left back instead of in midfield. Due to injuries and suspensions, there's not really anyone of note on the bench for the Black Cats

Kickoff is at 11:00 AM ET (4:00 PM local) and can be seen on television in the US on Fox Soccer Channel. For our readers in Canada, the match can be seen on SportsNet Ontario/East/West/Pacific (whatever that is) and for those of you in the UK you can find the match on Sky Sports 2.
