Our Team to face Carlisle, what’s yours?

by Matthew Harris on September 26, 2012

Andre Villas-Boas may not have the strength in the squad to field the sort of side that lost to Stoke at this stage of the competition last year but there are still likely to be several changes.

It’s claimed that Tom Huddlestone, Michael Dawson, Steven Caulker and Andros Townsend will all start the game while it’s also being suggested that AVB will ignore the opportunity to take another look at Hugo Lloris and give Cudicini or Gomes a run out instead.

Those likely to sit this one out include Bale and Gallas, while the only option at left back seems to involve switching Jan Vertonghen.

Here’s how we feel it will look tonight but what do you think?

Agreed. Vert and Walker and even Caulker (who i think should start against Man U) should be rested. Whilst we’ve got what it takes to win they’ll certainly kick the shit out of us in the process!

I don’t think you can leave out Defoe, even if it is the League Cup, as he’s on form right now and is a confidence player really. My team would be:
Gomes/Cudicini
Smith, Dawson, Caulker, Vertonghen
Falque, Livermore, Huddlestone, Townsend
Defoe, Dempsey

Bench: Sigurddson, Walker, Coulibaly, Dembele, Sandro

You have to have one eye on the Utd game on Saturday night – what if Sandro gets a knock and Parker’s still not fit? Also, Walker is an important player for us too.

You have to leave him out. If he gets injured then we’ve nothing for Man U.

Livermore is injured.

Would like to see Adam Smith, if he’s fit(?) given the nod at RB and Walker allowed a rest.

Assuming Naughton is still injured, Vertonghen seems the only LB option but it would be good to rest him too.

Spot on.
Ade needs playing time.
To risky with Walker and Vertonghen and we could see Dempsey playing in the space behind Ade.
And very importantly we will be ready to beat Man U on Saturday……

Let’s get one thing straight – we have a large enough squad to be able to play our best team. If they get tired, then we rest them throughout season. I think that we should use this game to continue to work AVB’s system’s in. Caulker and Dawson are itching to start. Vertonghen HAS to play. Walker HAS to play. Need ball winners in midfield. Possibly could rest Bale for the Man U game.
Lloris
Vertonghen, Caulker, Dawson, Walker
Sandro, Livermore
Townsend, Dempsey, Lennon
Defoe.

If struggling, Bale, Siggy, Dembele can come on.
If sailing, Walker, Sandro, Defoe, Dempsey or Lennon can come off for Mason, Carroll, Smith, Hudd, Falque

We never get anything from Man U, so what is there to lose?

Playing Jenas at all in an interesting move. But playing hime at RB. At least if he gets injured\booted around all night its no loss to the squad.
