Wow, Eric Dier gets a start. I'm a bit surprised that Jan Vertonghen isn't fit enough to play. Danny Rose over Ben Davies is a minor surprise too.
Kickoff is at 3 p.m. local, 10 a.m. ET. Unfortunately, this was not selected as the TV game among the midday kickoffs, so you'll have to catch this one on the internets. If you live in the United States, you can find it on NBC Live Extra, or on the Premier League Extra Time channels if your provider has them. Chat away.
