It’s a real guess as to who will take to the field tonight but what we do know is that there are several absentees due to injury. Emmanuel Adebayor has joined Scott Parker, BAE, Younes Kaboul and Jake Livermore on the sidelines and all five are certain to be ruled out this evening.
“Ade has been struggling with a muscle injury, so he will be out of the game,” said Andre Villas-Boas.
“Benoit is still out, we’re waiting for the specialist to see his knee.
“Jake is making a good recovery from his groin strain, we’re looking to have him back in 10, 15 more days.
“Scotty is still a bit far off, maybe three weeks before he returns to first team training, so slowly making progress and Younes is out for some time.”
So who could be brought into as replacements for the side that started against Reading on Sunday? Hugo Lloris seems a probability in goal while Michael Dawson and Steven Caulker could be pushing for starts in defence.
AVB hinted that Clint Dempsey could play the lone striker role while there is a possibility that Andros Townsend or Tom Carroll could be involved.
Here’s what we think but what’s your opinion?
