There’s no confirmed news yet on William Gallas, but you would expect that he may well sit out tomorrow’s game against West Ham.
Bassong could slot straight back in as his replacement, or will Harry spring a surprise and recall Ledley King who was on the bench against AC Milan? With Corluka likely to retain his place, the rest of the back four pick themselves as usual.
The big question as it is with every game, is will it be 4-5-1 or 4-4-2? This looks particularly hard to call this week. If, as we assume, Bale and Van der Vaart are fit, you might expect 4-5-1 with VDV tucking in behind Peter Crouch, but with Defoe and Pav both scoring at Wolves it could be 4-4-2 with VDV, Modric, Sandro and Bale in midfield.
Here’s the team that we expect us to line up with. Who would you pick?
