Assistant Kevin Bond was giving little away in terms of team news yesterday while he did confirm that there were injury doubts over Scott Parker, Younes Kaboul and Gareth Bale,
“Younes missed training on Wednesday, while both Gareth and Scotty had to come out of training early with slight muscle problems,” he said.
Bond also confirmed that Sandro and William Gallas were definitely ruled out although given Spurs’ selection policy for cup games, it seems unlikely that any of those names would have featured from the start in any event.
Spurs could conceivably play the same side that defeated Cheltenham in the third round but that could largely depend on the availability of Giovani dos Santos who is supposedly on the brink of a move to Spain. If Gio is out of the picture, Jake Livermore is likely to move into midfield from the right back berth but that still leaves questions.
The game could feature Tom Carroll against his home town club, Vedran Corluka and even John Bostock who has turned in a couple of decent performances in Spurs Lodge matches.
This then is our team to face Watford, but what’s yours?
