Spurs have no new injury worries ahead of tonight’s game with Arsenal. That will give Harry Redknapp an interesting dilemma with a first choice midfield of Bale, VDV, Lennon, Modric and Huddlestone to select from.

Redknapp has gone to 4-4-2 in the league which would mean that one of those five would miss out, so will it be 4-5-1 again to accommodate Van der Vaart?

The back five is likely to be unchanged from the Real Madrid game and up front, Peter Crouch could well return from suspension after his brace against Stoke. Will he partner Pav in a 4-4-2 or will VDV slot in behind him?

Here’s our team to face Arsenal. What’s yours?

  1. whaaaaattttt ????????? leave lennon out ? what planet are you ? Seriously, if you were a manager you’d be dangerous..

    Gomes
    kaboul
    dawson
    gallas
    bae
    lennon
    modric
    hudd
    bale
    vdv
    crouch.

  2. I’d tend to side with Tom, although I can see the advantage in playing two strikers. I use the term “strikers” loosely of course.

  3. I’d play 2-3-5

    – – – – – – Gomes – – – – – –
    – – – Gallas – – Dawson – – –

    – Sandro – Hudd – Modric –

    Lennon-Defoe-VDV-Pav-Bale

  4. Id definitely be on this side

    Gomes
    kaboul if he is fit or else corluka
    dawson
    gallas
    bae
    lennon
    modric
    hudd if he is now fully fit, otherwise sandro
    bale
    vdv
    crouch

  5. Tom is bang on with having kaboul at RB cos he was quality there in the run in last season & i’m fed up of charlie. Hudd just gets the nod over sandro (again him & modders during run in were excellent). Got to have lennon and I agree we need two strikers!

    So here it is……….VDV benched. Loved him when he was running all over banging in the goals and generally looking great, in first 10-12 games. Recently he looks overweight & his inclusion inhibits our attacking play.

    Crouch & …..Pav up top. Sorry Jermaine

  6. Its a hard call Sandro would really dominate Arsenals weak midfield, he wouldnt let them have a second on the ball.
    Thing is we need to attack them as that where they are weak, I know the exact team Redknapp will play.
    Gomes
    Corluka Daws Gallas BAE
    Lennon Hudd Modric Bale
    VDV Crouch

    Thats the same team that played Madrid barring Crouch for Pav and you hope Crouch could finish one of the 3 sitters Pav got.

    I would have Kaboul in for Corluka but I duno

  7. 4-3-3 is not such a bad idea:

    Gomes

    Kaboul Dawson Gallas BAE

    VDV Sandro Modric

    Lennon Crouch Bale

    That way you could get VDV in the team, but at hudd’s expense as it would be too attacking otherwise.

  8. Gomes
    Corluka – Gallas – Dawson – BAE
    Lennon – Sandro – Modric – Bale
    Crouch – VDV

    although i know a few would disagree,, i would be tempted to play Pav instead of Crouch!

  9. We need to dominate the midfield; have VdV on the bench and use our pace out wide.

    Gomes
    Kaboul – Dawson – Gallas – BAE
    Lennon – Sandro – Modric – Huddlestone – Bale
    Pav
