Team news is in ahead of this evening’s Premier League tie with Liverpool and it focusses on Emmanuel Adebayor who missed last week’s win over Southampton with a heel injury. Head Coach Tim Sherwood seemed a little unsure over Ade with the fear that his participation in the game would aggravate the problem.
“We’re hoping Ade can make it but he has a nasty cut at the back of his heel,” Sherwood said.
“The question is whether or not we leave him out for another week, let it heal a little better or put him back in and it might open up again.”
From those comments, it sounds as if the striker may be an option on the bench with Roberto Soldado as the lone centre forward, away from home against the second placed team.
The only two players definitely ruled out appear to be Kyle Walker and Erik Lamela although it’s unlikely that Vlad Chiriches will be risked after a run out for the under 21s last night.
So much of the team picks itself – here’s what we think Sherwood will go for even if we don’t necessarily agree – but what’s your opinion?
