Spurs look to have only two first team members unavailable as they make the short trip to Loftus Road. Younes Kaboul remains on the long term injury list, with a possible return pencilled in for next month while William Gallas continues to miss out with the calf strain he picked up at Villa Park.
“William will be out of the game, unfortunately,” said Andre Villas-Boas. “The rest of the team is fine.”
Of the players that returned to the side in last weekend’s FA Cup win, Benoit Assou-Ekotto seems the one most likely to keep his place at left back while Scott Parker and Clint Dempsey may have to return to the bench.
The main question mark may be over Dempsey after three goals in his last two matches – albeit two against a weak Coventry side. Will AVB stick with 4-4-2 or will Emmanuel Adebayor pay an early price for his trip to AFCON by losing out to Clint in a 4-5-1?
Here’s what we think but what’s your view?
