A number of first team players returned to full training last week but the quotes from Head Coach Tim Sherwood suggest that there won’t be too many changes for tonight’s game with second placed City. Jan Vertonghen, Younes Kaboul, Sandro and Paulinho are all nearing full fitness but this evening’s match may have come too soon for any of them to be involved.
“The four lads are back in training but we have to be cautious of not rushing them back,” Sherwood said. “We have to make sure they are ready.
“Andros and Erik are the only ones not training at the moment.”
Tim also suggested the side would play an attacking style which raises the big question – 4-4-2 or 4-5-1?
Nacer Chadli was given an opportunity to impress – one which he didn’t take – at Swansea last time out so will Roberto Soldado be given another chance? We’re at home so 4-4-2 becomes a stronger option but this is prolific Manchester City.
Here’s how we think Sherwood will set Spurs up – we don’t necessarily agree – but what’s your view?
