Free hot dog at the concession stand if you guessed this lineup right. Fernando, James Milner, and Frank Lampard all start together while Jesus Navas looks to top his 13 second goal from last season. And Toure + Fernandinho as late game subs? Very interesting.
Meanwhile Spurs have some interesting changes of their own as Federico Fazio is handed his first start in defense. Vertonghen is on the bench and Soldado somehow leapfrogs Adebayor and Kane into the starting XI.
Very interesting tactical battle in this one. Comment away...
