It’s reported that Sandro and Aaron Lennon suffered no ill-effects after appearing in last night’s 1-0 win over Rubin Kazan and both could make a start for Tottenham in Sunday’s clash at Blackburn Rovers.
The injury problems in defence mean that the back four picks itself with Walker, BAE, Kaboul and Bassong likely to line up ahead of Brad Friedel in goal.
In midfield, the possible return of Lennon and Sandro does raise a few questions and while Bale and Modric seem likely to start on the left, it’s hard to imagine that Scott Parker will be rested in view of his performances since joining the club at the end of August, but that appears to be the only possible slot for Sandro.
That would mean Lennon likely to start on the right wing with the Brazilian on the bench. All of that leaves the usual question up front where three into two won’t go. If Adebayor is a certain starter, the issue is whether to start with VDV behind him or in a 4-4-2 with Jermain Defoe.
Here’s our team to face Blackburn Rovers, what’s yours?
