Emmanuel Adebayor is unavailable for Sunday’s game against Manchester City so for now at least, the usual question of who plays up front remains.
Luka Modric has fully recovered from a hamstring injury and according to Harry Redknapp should be involved however the club are still without Peter Crouch, Ledley King, William Gallas, Sandro, Wilson Palacios, Steven Pienaar and Danny Rose.
Starting in goal, having used three keepers in the first three games of the campaign, it seems logical that Brad Friedel should return. In front of him, Kyle Walker has recovered from a virus and could link up again with Dawson, Kaboul and BAE in the back four.
Midfield becomes harder to call and while Bale and Lennon are likely to play on the flanks, will Modric start in his usual position in the left centre? Jake Livermore could retain his place unless Harry feels that Huddlestone is ready to step back in, but somehow you wouldn’t be surprised to see Jermaine Jenas involved.
Up front, with Adebayor and Crouch unavailable and bearing in mind Pav’s performance on Thursday, could it be VDV behind Defoe by default?
Here’s our team to face Manchester City, what’s yours?
