Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas confirmed the news that Emmanuel Adebayor will miss tonight’s game with Fulham and he joins three players on the treatment table ahead of the game.
“We’ve had a setback with Ade who picked up a knee injury in yesterday’s training session,” Andre said. “He’s the only player who will join the injury list.”
Christian Eriksen and Danny Rose also miss out along with Harry Kane who is struggling with a back problem. There had been suggestions that AVB would switch to a 4-4-2 for the trip to Craven Cottage but with Kane and Ade out, there is no recognised striking cover on the bench.
That still leaves Jermain Defoe threatening Roberto Soldado with the Spaniard drawing another blank on Sunday and this could be the time for Villas-Boas to make the switch. The only other question after a positive display against United is over Nacer Chadli and you could imagine AVB being tempted to bring Andros Townsend back in for this one.
Here’s how we think it will start but what’s your view?
