Sherwood to spring surprise changes against Swansea?

Posted on January 19, 2014 by Eddie S

Today we might find out if Tim Sherwood has picked up any tips from his time in charge and especially from the defeat suffered at the Emirates, on that occasion his four man midfield with his two forwards filling in from time to time failed miserably. Today he takes his team to Swansea to face a team that is very happy to retain the ball for long periods and does so with a five man midfield. Maybe it might be difficult to change a winning team but surely changes will have to be made at some point as some players begin to return from injury, it is fair to say that a place will have to be found in the team for Vertonghen, our best central defender, for Paulinho who offers so much in midfield and possibly even Andros Townsend who is the powerful and direct wide player on the books.

Today Sherwood has an opportunity to show what he can do and that he can take the team forward, while Tottenham have the chance to make a real statement of intent, win today and they go level with fourth placed Liverpool who after winning so comprehensively at the Lane took a six point lead over them which led to the exit of AVB.v Swansea

Whether or not Sherwood makes changes to the formation or personnel of far greater importance is the result today, a good performance and result would ensure Tottenham keep in touch at the very top of the table, it would also be encouraging to see the team start the game far quicker than the last time out against Palace when they were very lacklustre for the first 45 minutes.

Somehow I think that there might be some minor changes today and whether that includes Defoe for Soldado ( a bad decision in the circumstances of JD leaving and Soldado confidence being further eroded) the return of Townsend on the left flank or that and Eriksen switched to the centre in a five man midfield, perhaps the time has come to protect the young Bentaleb and continue with his development rather than overuse him.

Not long to wait now, the fantastic travelling support that follow Tottenham are on their way and will be heard come the game, three points and a good performance will set us up nicely for next weeks visit of Manchester City.

      you got the formation and it was enjoyable and we got the 3 points in an exciting performance. Plenty more players to come back Vertonghen, Paulinho, Sandro, Lamela, Soldado, and Townsend. We are back in this.COYS
