Premier League Sunday, Gameweek 17: Open Thread

white hart lane Premier League Sunday, Gameweek 17: Open Thread

Swansea has never beaten Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane in the Welsh club’s 100 year history. Today, the Swans will be hoping to change that record against a reinvigorated Lilywhites team thanks to the return of Moussa Dembele, who has been a major differentiator for Andre Villas-Boas’s side.

Tottenham starting line-up: Lloris, Walker, Gallas, Vertonghen, Naughton, Lennon, Sandro, Dembele, Dempsey, Adebayor & Defoe

Swansea starting line-up: Tremmel, Tiendalli, Williams (c), Chico, Davies, Britton, de Guzman, Ki, Dyer, Routledge, Michu.

Swansea against Spurs is the early kick off today (8:30am ET/1:30pm UK time). That game is followed by the two Wests at 11am ET/4pm ET — West Bromwich Albion against West Ham United. It’s sixth against eleventh. A win for West Brom could move the Baggies back into fourth place (depending on the result from the Tottenham-Swansea game). A win for the Hammers would leapfrog the team above Arsenal into 8th spot.
