Team news is in and Tim Sherwood has followed AVB’s practise of leaving several players at home ahead of an important weekend fixture. Younes Kaboul, Emmanuel Adebayor, Aaron Lennon, Hugo Lloris and Kyle Walker all stay in London with the coach making an unconvincing comment in regard to their absence.
They all have niggles,” said Tim “They will miss this game but we hope they will be ready on Sunday. It’s an opportunity for the other lads.”
But who are the other lads ready to step in? Sandro, Vlad Chiriches and Erik Lamela all remain sidelined so don’t be surprised to see players such as Harry Kane having a role to play this evening.
Meanwhile, Brad Friedel should take over in goal with Michael Dawson returning to the side. Etienne Capoue should slot into midfield with Roberto Soldado likely to play a lone role up front.
With those players missing, this is a real guess but what’s your opinion?
