Having persisted with one up front for the whole of the season so far, Tottenham head coach Andre Villas-Boas has suggested he will look at playing a straight 4-4-2 when the club travel to relegation threatened Fulham on Wednesday.
“We can look at it,” AVB said. “It depends.
“We’ve been successful in some way with one of the strikers but it’s possible.”
However, Andre’s options look to be limited with Emmanuel Adebayor expected to be ruled out with a groin injury so if Soldado and Defoe do start, Harry Kane would provide the only back up on the bench.
Villas-Boas also confirmed that Danny Rose will continue to miss out although the left back may just be available for the trip to Sunderland on Saturday.
But the real talking point is the striker situation and having drawn with Manchester United and scored twice on Sunday, it would surprise many to see AVB change things around. However, with Fulham struggling in the bottom three, is this the perfect time to trial the new formation?
