There’s no official word from the club as yet although we can probably guess the team news ahead of Saturday’s early kick off with West Ham. We know that Andros Townsend has been ruled out for 10 weeks while Kyle Walker is another likely absentee but Etienne Capoue and Jan Vertonghen have returned to training.
It might be a little too soon for either Etienne or Jan to feature in this game but a place on the bench is more likely. Otherwise it could well be the same side that started against Stoke last weekend.
Roberto Soldado and Gylfi Sigurdsson will be among those aiming for a start but here’s how we think Tim Sherwood will set us up – what’s your opinion?
