Well, apparently both Kyle Naughton and Vlad Chiriches failed their late fitness tests, since Eric Dier gets the start at right back. Remember when we needed a LEFT back so desperately? FFS LEVY. The Bentaleb-Mason midfield continues, with Erik Lamela back in the fold ahead of Aaron Lennon. Harry Kane and Roberto Soldado start up top and I love it. Danny Rose is back, but he starts on the bench, as does Benjamin Stambouli.
For Palace, it's more or less as expected. Marouane Chamakh and Wilfried Zaha up top, Mile Jedinak and Joe Ledley in midfield. Palace don't attack well, but don't think that they don't have some options.
How to Watch:
Tottenham Hotspur v. Crystal Palace – 3:00 p.m. UK (10:00 a.m. USA)
The match will be carried in the States on NBC Sports Network Extra Time and online on NBC Sports Live Extra. It's not on TV in England, which is dumb, but you'll figure something out, I'm sure. It's on TSN1 in Canada, Fox Sports 5 ("The Cinco!") in Australia.
As usual, match thread rules of conduct apply: no links to illegal streams, no abuse of players or referees. Treat everyone respectfully, and keep firm control of your emotions, especially if (when?) we lose.
