[Teams] Tottenham vs Man Utd: Confirmed Line-ups

By on January 20, 2013

Tottenham welcome league leaders Manchester United to White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon after the game passed a pitch inspection following heavy snow in north London.

United will be looking to restore their seven point advantage at the top of the league after seeing their lead cut to four points by Man City on Saturday. But Tottenham are desperate for points themselves as they look to tighten their grip on a top-four place.

Scott Parker comes in for the injured Sandro in midfield for Spurs while Kyle Naughton retains his place at left back. For United, Sir Alex Ferguson has decided to leave Wayne Rooney on the bench as he goes with Danny Welbeck in support of Robin van Persie up front.

Here are the confirmed teams for the game:

Tottenham Team

Lloris, Walker, Caulker, Dawson, Naughton, Parker, Dembele, Lennon, Bale, Dempsey, Defoe

Subs: Friedel, Vertonghen, Assou-Ekotto, Huddlestone, Sigurdsson, Livermore, Townsend

Man Utd Team

De Gea, Rafael, Vidic, Ferdinand, Evra, Carrick, Jones, Cleverley, Kagawa, RVP, Welbeck.

Subs: Lindegaard, Anderson, Valencia, Rooney, Giggs, Smalling, Hernandez.

    Caulker and Dawson!!!! bit baffed, Vertonghen should defo have started…..maybe with Caulker and then Ekotto at left back.

    United have gone with no wingers so it gives the full backs a chance to get forward and Ekotto is simply better than Naughton

      Looks like Phil Jones was put in to help Rafael shut down Bale. Jones will probably be playing right in front of Rafael, so expect to see them doubling up on Bale every time he gets the ball.

    Yeah, my thoughts exactly. Matbe AVB knows something we don’t with regard to fitness, colds, touch of flu etc. Least I hope he does 🙂
