Defoe out for 3 games shouldn’t be a problem.

Posted on April 03, 2013 by Tony

It has recently been reported that Jermain Defoe will miss the next three games which includes 2 Europa ties against Basel and a League game at home to Everton, now whilst it is always good to be able to call upon all your main strikers when the need arises this news does not really cause undue horror or concern. Clint Dempsey is once again fully fit and should be ready to fire on all cylinders as and when the need arises, Adebayor whilst still not producing the goals needed still has a couple more than Defoe since the turn of the year and in truth is not playing badly, he continues to work extremely hard for the good of the team.

Missing 3 games really means that he is in actual fact unavailable to play for a little over a week as due to the involvement in the FA Cup of Chelsea, following their win over United, the weekend after next is now fixture free and gives Tottenham players time to rest up and prepare for their home game Manchester City, a game that Defoe will be fit to feature in if asked to do so. Once the Europa tie away to Basel is over Tottenham will have 10 full days to rest and prepare for their next fixture and that is a rare occurrence coming to the business end of the season when there is so much to play for. This will also enable AVB to really go for qualification in the Europa knowing that he need not rest players for a tough fixture that would have followed away to Chelsea a matter of only a few days later had Chelsea lost to United.

It is encouraging to think that Tottenham will soon have Defoe back in action but more so that Younes Kaboul will also soon be available, if he is ready we know that he brings even more pace and strength to the back line as well as an even greater aerial ability than Michael Dawson based on last years statistics when he lead the way with defensive headers.

Could it actually be that events are transpiring to go in Tottenhams favour for once?
