There appear to be no new injury concerns for Spurs ahead of tonight’s game against Manchester United and with Luka Modric ruled out, manager Harry Redknapp may well stick with the starting XI from last week’s Europa Cup Tie against Hearts.
The back five look set to stay as they are unless Harry decides to change the keepers around, otherwise Walker, BAE, Dawson and Kaboul should start ahead of Gomes.
In midfield, will Jake Livermore keep his place or will he be replaced by Tom Huddlestone who came on as a second half substitute last Thursday? Elsewhere, Lennon and Kranjcar could be retained with Bale slotting in wide on the left.
If VDV is fully fit, expect him to tuck in behind a lone striker and with Defoe scoring last week after Harry declared his expectations of a big season from him, JD could be the man to dislodge.
Pavlyuchenko could conceivably play alongside Defoe if Harry reverts to 4-4-2 but the likelihood is, there’ll be few changes from last week. Here’s our team to face United. What’s yours?
