Spurs are down to the bare bones in defence but are they thin enough elsewhere to see David Bentley make a surprise return to the side? Manager Harry Redknapp revealed in his press conference that one of the club’s forgotten men may well feature tomorrow.
“We haven’t got loads of players and looking at the squad, there is every chance David Bentley could be back on the bench. He is in the running,”Redknapp said.
“David hasn’t even played a game this season. He has been injured since he went to West Ham, but I’m struggling to find seven subs.”
Elsewhere, the news is grim at the back where injury to Younes Kaboul means that William Gallas and Ryan Nelsen are likely to be our only two fit centre backs.
“We’ve got a few injuries, we’ve just got to wait and see,” Harry added. “Younes Kaboul did his knee last week so he’s not available.
“Niko Kranjcar picked up a knee injury as well in midweek so he’s struggling with that. They won’t be available at the weekend, but we’ve got one or two other knocks as well.”
One of the few remaining questions is whether Harry will continue with Carlo in goal or whether first choice Friedel will come back into the frame.
Otherwise, there isn’t a lot to choose from so here’s our team to face Chelsea but what’s yours?
