It will be pretty impressive if anyone gets this spot on after so many new faces arrived at White Hart Lane over the summer. So what do we know as far as team news is concerned?
“Gylfi had a dead leg, although he did the beginning of training today,” said Andre Villas-Boas at his Thursday Press Conference.
“Erik Lamela arrived back this morning, but most of the players are fit and looking good. We are ready to go into the game.”
Aaron Lennon and Etienne Capoue will definitely miss the game through injury while reports state that Spurs are still waiting on a work permit for Romanian defender Vlad Chiriches.
Elsewhere, when Christian Eriksen began the season with Ajax, he started on the left side of midfield in a 4-3-3. Meanwhile, Erik Lamela tended to play on the right with Roma so that may answer a few questions assuming those two men start the game.
With Capoue out, Sandro has a perfect opportunity to return for a run in the team and will presumably play alongside Mousa Dembele who scored on his debut in the corresponding fixture last year.
So here is our best guess but what’s your view?
