It’s been confirmed that William Gallas and Gareth Bale will miss tomorrow’s trip to Wigan and both will struggle for the trip to the Bernabeu on Tuesday night.
Speaking on the club website Harry said: “Gareth isn’t fit for tomorrow and William’s knee is giving him problems at the moment.”
On the subject of their chances of facing Real Madrid, Redknapp said: “Gareth’s hamstring is still tight and you can never tell with a hamstring injury, until you really push it, you are not sure. William is struggling at the moment.”
So the back four for Wigan picks itself once again, but as always, the real question is who will play in midfield and what formation will we go with?
4-4-2 has been Harry’s choice in the league for the last few games, until he switched to a 4-5-1 against West Ham. Will it be Defoe and Pav with Crouch saved for Tuesday, or will the manager shake things up a bit?
Behind them, Lennon looks to be fit, so will it be him alongside Pienaar and VDV or will JJ feature tomorrow? The other question is Huddlestone or Sandro? Tom is fit again and in the squad but will he start on the bench with the Brazilian keeping his place or will Harry throw him straight back into the action?
This would be our team to face Wigan. What’s yours?
