There’s no real team news from the club as yet but there haven’t been any reports of fresh injuries ahead of tonight’s second leg tie against Dinamo Tbilisi at the Lane. However, head coach Andre Villas-Boas has said he will try out some of the fringe players, but there will be no complacency, despite the 5-0 lead ahead of the contest.
“We want to give a chance to a couple of them and include them in the squad,” AVB said.
“I think we can hopefully throw them into the game if it goes our way, but the most important thing is to ensure that we are there for the group stage.”
With the North London Derby coming up, the need for rest is obvious but will we go strong from the start and look to make chances once the tie is definitely in the bag? Who, of the fringe players is Andre considering – Tom Carroll, Harry Kane or maybe Shaq Coulthirst?
It’s a bit of a punt as it has been since the first game of the season but here’s how we think we might line up from the first whistle, with the likes of Carroll and Kane to be introduced from half time onwards – what’s your view?
