Y'all ready for this?!? (updated)

Yeah, I think tonight is the night we get to see DeAndre Yedlin (pictured in yesterday's training with Christian Eriksen) make his Tottenham debut.

Spurs are still working Kyle Walker back from injury in the midst of a fixture crunch, they sold Kyle Naughton to Swansea yesterday and tonight's Capital One Cup semifinal opening leg visitor is League One Sheffield United. My brain says a start is not out of the question.

We shall see, but Yedlin is in the provisional squad of 24, with a dress squad of 18 to be named about an hour before kickoff.

UPDATE: Nope.No Yedlin tonight. Seems like a real missed opportunity by the Spurs manager to me.

Cool. Hope he gets minutes even if he doesn't start.

Debut denied. Maybe they'll bring some fringe/youth players in for the second leg if they win by a few clear goals tonight.

Yedlin supposedly released to the USMNT for the friendlies. There has to be an eligibility issue with him.

For the FA Cup, yes. If I am not mistaken, he cannot join their registered squad for that until the February.

He should be all clear for league and League Cup play.
