As we are all aware, Emmanuel Adebayor will be force to sit this one out but is it a simple case of bringing in Jermain Defoe as a straight replacement. Could Harry accommodate Pavlyuchenko in a 4-4-2 or even play five across the midfield tomorrow.
The other issue surrounds club captain Ledley King who may be a bigger doubt for the game than was suggested earlier in the week.
“He’s not trained, but it’s not impossible he could come out and train tomorrow morning,” said Harry on Friday
“He’s not fit to train today. He can’t, because of his knee, but he may well come out tomorrow morning, so I wouldn’t write him off.
“This is no different to normal. If he comes out tomorrow morning and says ‘I’m okay’, then he’ll play Sunday, if I pick him. That’s how it works. It’s amazing, really. It defies everything.”
If fit, it could be a question of whether King comes straight back in for Michael Dawson who played three games in a week after recovering from his own injury issues. Otherwise the team probably picks itself and this is what we think it will be.
