There’s no news of any further injuries following our 2-1 win over Liverpool on Thursday so could Andre Villas-Boas name an unchanged side as we travel to Fulham?

AVB also paid tribute to his team, many of whom played in all three games from Lazio through to Liverpool over a six day period.

“It’s been a great week for us and I have to compliment the players on their efforts,” said Andre. “We came back from Lazio to a 3-1 win against West Ham, who were ahead of us, and now a 2-1 win against Liverpool, a team that shares the same objectives as us.”

So what are the options if AVB decides that somebody does need a rest? Friedel back for Lloris would infuriate a few supporters but would it be a big surprise?

Up front, Adebayor finishes his ban so Defoe remains unchallenged while across the back four, injuries mean that the defence picks itself.

So the only questions may be in midfield with the likes of Sigurdsson, Livermore and possibly Tom Carroll battling for a start.

We think it will be unchanged however and the formation will look like this, but what’s your view?



  1. I agree Dawson and Gallas has a good game against liverpool.. but I dont want Caulker to get stuck on the bench as he is our future.. so I would be happy with Caulker coming in for either Gallas or Dawson. (i actually think Dawson and Caulker may be our best pairing until Kaboul is fit). Also Ade should come in for Dempsey in my opinion.. especially as its against fulham (Ade has served his ban right?)

  2. Caulker for Gallas.
    Dembele to play behind JD and Thudd alongside Sandro.

    Both Dempsey and Gylfi are totally useless as No. 10’s. Thank god Ade’s back after this one.

  3. The last thing Lloris needs is a rest; should be automatic first choice now……and yes Caulker instead of William please (although looking forward to Verts being reinstated to central defence in due course).

  4. I’d freshen up a bit & rest lennon sandro & verthongen, I’d go with lloris walker Dawson caulker naughton, siggurdson Dembele huddlestone Carroll bale, Defoe subs Friedel verthongen gallas sandro lennon dempsey pritchard
