Spurs head coach Andre Villas-Boas promised to give Danny Rose some game time after a long injury lay off but the left back will start against Anzhi Makhachkala in a much changed side.

Our full starting XI reads

Brad Friedel; Kyle Naughton, Etienne Capoue, Ezekiel Fryers, Danny Rose; Lewis Holtby, Mousa Dembele; Erik Lamela, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Andros Townsend; Roberto Soldado.

And our substitutes,

Jordan Archer, Ryan Fredericks, Michael Dawson, Laste Dombaxe, Christian Eriksen, Nacer Chadli, Shaquile Coulthirst

So there’s plenty of opportunity for AVB to give some of our fringe players a run out if and when the game becomes safe. It will be interesting too to see Christian Eriksen back after his own injury issues.

What are your predictions for tonight’s game?




  1. Stupidity to play Dembely, Holtby & Capoue – This is a meaningless game and I don’t understand the point of risking these three with Liverpool to play on Sunday.
    Should have played three youngsters in their places.
