What will this guy bring to the mix today? - Ian Walton
Match Week 27 comes to a close today with a London Derby between the Hammers and Spurs that will have many fantasy managers focused on Hugo Lloris, Lewis Holtby, Emmanuel Adebayor, and maybe some guy named Bale. We'll be here watching and chatting about what we see.
Here are the line-ups for today's match:
Tottenham: Lloris, Walker, Dawson, Caulker, Vertonghen, Parker, Dembele, Lennon, Bale, Holtby & Adebayor
West Ham: Jaaskelainen, Reid, Nolan, Jarvis, Carroll, O'Brien, Collins, Demel, Diame, J.Cole, O'Neil
You'd have to assume it will be a comfortable Spurs win but with Arsenal winning (albeit in unimpressive fashion) the pressure is still there to make sure that they keep their lead in the race for a Champions League spot.
As we're watching the match, I am curious to know what everyone thinks of the race for third and fourth. Assuming Spurs win they'll be in third a point ahead of Chelsea with Arsenal two points back from the Blues. I know Arsene Wenger has targeted 2nd place but City seem unlikely to fall that far but Chelsea doesn't seem to be the ironclad lock for a top four spot that they seemed earlier in the season. Maybe I'm being too hopeful as an Arsenal supporter but it feels like any combination of Arsenal, Spurs, and Chelsea in 3rd, 4th and 5th wouldn't be too unreasonable come May. Thoughts?
