There are some fresh injury worries for Spurs ahead of tomorrow’s game with Wigan at the JJB with news that Niko Kranjcar has been ruled out while left back Benoit Assou-Ekotto is a doubt with illness.
According to the club website, William Gallas is available ‘soon’ so if he misses out tomorrow, King and Kaboul should continue their centre half pairing in front of Brad Friedel.
Kyle Walker may well continue at right back but if BAE does miss out, Danny Rose is also injured so the only option seems to be dropping Bale to left back with Luka Modric moving to the left as he did towards the end of last season.
Both Sandro and VDV are available and if Bale is moved out of the midfield, those two could slot in alongside Luka and Scott Parker. Up front it seems almost certain that Defoe and Adebayor will continue their partnership which has yielded five goals in two Premiership games to date.
Livermore and Dos Santos will be hoping that Harry may find a place in the starting XI for them but a slot on the bench seems more likely. In the meantime, Roman Pavlyuchenko has been ruled out with a hamstring injury and that could see Harry Kane taking his place amongst the subs.
Here’s our team to face Wigan – what’s yours?
