Should Tottenham risk Dembele today?

Posted on May 04, 2013 by Tony

By all accounts Mousa Dembele ┬átrained yesterday and is apparently ready to resume duties in central midfield. Obviously today’s fixture is a must win if Tottenham wish to put pressure on the two other London clubs blocking their route into the Champions League, but with the game in hand due to be played against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge come Wednesday any sort of doubt surrounding his fitness should result in him remaining on the bench against Southampton.

This fixture against Southampton is a potential banana skin because they are a good team performing well at the moment, having said that Tottenham should still have enough about them and a good enough squad of players to take on and beat them without the need to take a chance on the fitness of Dembele before the Chelsea game when he will be essential. Because Tottenham need to take all 3 points today AVB must not be foolish with his team choice or setup, today is not one to experiment or change much, a win is all important, Dembele on the bench in case of need should be a reasonable chance to take in these circumstances.

The order of the day is take no chances with team selection, be quick out of the blocks and go for an early goal or two, the crowd will be right up for this and a huge effort in the early stages will bring out the best in them. Today is a day to make a statement to all the others and put pressure on them, perhaps it is time to to hope for a bit of help from United and QPR as well as begin a run of results to take a top four position by the scruff of the neck. Tottenham finished fourth last season and it is not too much to expect that they announce themselves as such with wins against all the teams left to face starting with Southampton today.
