Good morning everyone.
Welcome to yet another two hours of me talking the hind legs off a donkey.
I will be covering today's Spurs game against Everton at 12:45 p.m.
Gareth Bale is a doubt for the starting lineup, but uniquely not due to injury.
The highly-rated Cliff Jones impersonator has been starting pretty much every game for weeks and scored a belated hat-trick against the defending Champions League champions, Inter Milan. But evidently, after Wednesday's surprise, he must be completely knackered!
The game until then was an eyesore for Spurs fans worldwide as they were ripped to shreds 4-0 in the first half. Luckily, Gareth Bale found the weak spot in Milan's back line and exploited it three times! Even Julio Cesar—one of the finest goalkeepers in the world—couldn't stop Bale's shots going in the same concentrated spot three times (bottom left corner).
Here's the full team news for both teams. The starting XI will be featured later when I see it.
