The main team news as far as Spurs are concerned surrounds Danny Rose and AVB’s claim that the left back has a 90% chance of returning for Saturday’s London Derby.
“For Danny, there is a 90 per cent chance that he will make the game, so that gives us options down that flank,” said Andre.
Villas-Boas has used Kyle Naughton and Zeki Fryers during Danny’s absence but is likely to put the left back straight in if he possibly can.
AVB gave a further update on the progress of Aaron Lennon and Etienne Capoue.
“Aaron will be back with the team either tomorrow or on Monday, and that’s a great addition with what he represents,” he added.
“Etienne will return for the games after the international break.”
There are a few questions in midfield as there are likely to be for most of this campaign. Lewis Holtby is the player pressing for a start after impressing against Cardiff and Villa while Erik Lamela may also come in on the flank.
Andros Townsend and Gylfi Sigurdsson are the men most under pressure and a drop to the bench would be tough on Gylfi after his double strike against Norwich two weeks ago.
Finally, Roberto Soldado has plenty of pressure from Jermain Defoe who has 6 in 6 this season but AVB may well keep faith in the Spaniard for now.
