[Teams] Sunderland vs Tottenham: Confirmed Line-ups

By on December 29, 2012

Tottenham take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Saturday lunchtime hoping to cement their place in the top-four.

Spurs currently sit fourth on goal difference from Everton and West Brom so the Londoners will look to put some daylight between them and their rivals as they face the Black Cats in today’s early kick off.

Andre Villas-Boas has brought Steven Caulker back into the starting eleven as he partners Michael Dawson in central defence. Mousa Dembele is passed fit after aggravating a hip injury against Villa.

Danny Rose doesn’t feature for the home side as he can’t play against his parent club, so John O’Shea comes in for the only change from the side that beat Man City. Here are the confirmed line-ups for the game:

Sunderland Team

Mignolet, Gardner, Kilgallon, O’Shea, Cuellar, Larsson, Colback, Johnson, McClean, Sessegnon, Fletcher.

Subs: Campbell, Wickham, McFadden, Vaughan, Dong-won, Bramble, Westwood.

Tottenham Team

Lloris; Walker, Dawson, Caulker, Vertonghen; Lennon, Sandro, Dembele, Bale; Adebayor, Defoe

Subs: Dempsey, Vertonghen, Huddlestone, Parker, Sigurdsson, Livermore, Friedel.
