There are no new injury worries but plenty of old ones for Spurs ahead of Sunday’s clash with Wolves at Molineux. The big news is that Rafael van der Vaart appears to have been ruled out of the game as he struggles to recover from a calf injury. Both he and Gareth Bale will sit this one out, but Harry Redknapp hopes to have both players fit for the AC Milan game next week.

Corluka, Kaboul, King and Woodgate are long term injury victims so with Alan Hutton returning after an alleged groin strain, the back four seems to pick itself.

The questions are over midfield and attack. With Defoe’s injury scare in the week will Harry revert to 4-5-1 for this one and accommodate both Sandro and Kranjcar in midfield, or will it be Crouch and Defoe up front and 4-4-2 again? Here’s the team that we would put out. What would yours be?

  1. How can people keep leaving out the only striker we have that actually scores goals!!! pav simply HAS to start every game. having said that I would play pineaar ahead of niko just because niko doesn’t have the grit for an away game at wolves.

  2. re: spider
    did you not see pav play at blackpool?! he was diabolical. He was second to every 80-20 ball (in his favour), and did not look interested one bit. pav and defoe is a receipe for disaster, they are the two most selfish centre forwards in the league. In what will most likely me a niggley and full blooded game,wolves will give us little time on the ball. we need crouch to hold the ball upfront when we come under pressure from them. crouch and defoe must start together.

  3. I agree Pav dont want to play for us anymore, Defoe is poor but he does try, him and Crouch up top, I would say Krancjar left midfield, Pienaar doesnt really do it for me.

    Hutton back and Bassong out, cant we bring back Harry Kane from Orient he has scored 4 goals and he has only started 1 game.
    He smashed it in our youth teams I dont understand how he could do any worse than the players we have upfront at the moment.

  4. I feel we desperately need a strike partnership up front, let alone someone capable of actually scoring! I did have loads of patience for Pav, he does have the ability, but no motivation in seems, esp on our travels. It has to to Defoe, who is also driving me crazy but as said ‘at leasts he tries’, with Crouch. Scared we may end up with Sweet FA. We simply must win tomorrow, however, traditionally we loose these type of games – same old Spurs at times! If we fail to qualify for CL again, we may as well say goodbye, in the short term, to ambition and a commitment to finish higher than the ‘stinking Arse’!!!
