A pair of London Derby clashes headline Sunday’s soccer action on TV, with Tottenham playing host to Fulham to White Hart Lane and West Ham heading to West London to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
American forward Clint Dempsey will be available to face his former team after missing a couple of weeks due to a calf injury. If Dempsey sees action today it will likely be off of the bench, with Andre Villas-Boas being more inclined to slowly ease the playmaker back to full fitness.
In Italy, AC Milan will look to get over their UEFA Champions League disappointment by posting a victory against Palermo. A win could help Milan leapfrog Napoli into second place in Serie A if Atalante can knock off Edinson Cavani and Co.
In the Netherlands, Jozy Altidore and AZ Alkmaar take on Ajax in a key Eredivisie clash. Altidore enjoyed a standout showing against Ajax in AZ’s recent Dutch Cup victory, and will look to keep his recent scoring streak going as he heads into World Cup qualfying.
