This could be the trickiest line up of all to predict, bearing in mind that there could be some significant changes in personnel between now and 3pm tomorrow afternoon.
For now however, it’s worth looking at what we have got and whether Moussa Dembele or indeed Emmanuel Adebayor could start the game. It might also be fair to assume that anyone arriving at the club from this point is unlikely to go straight into the starting XI.
So the back five could be the same as last weekend assuming everyone is fit. Even if Michael Dawson is at the club it would be a surprise if he shifts William Gallas from the starting line up.
Last weekend AVB played Lennon, Sandro, Livermore, VDV and Bale across the middle but at Noon on transfer deadline day, it’s starting to look almost certain that Van der Vaart is on his way. That could simply mean a straight swap with Dembele coming in.
Alternatively, Sigurdsson may be back into the picture or could the coach revert to a 4-4-2 with Defoe and Ade up front as we go for the Norwich jugular?
It’s anybody’s guess – here’s what we perhaps think it should be, even if it seems unlikely, but what’s your view?
