Tottenham team for tonight.

Posted on April 04, 2013 by Guest Writer

Clearly having got this far AVB, the players and most certainly every supporter wants Tottenham to go on and actually aim to win the second best European club trophy. Tonight Tottenham take on Basel in the first leg of the quarter final but with another important league fixture against Everton on Sunday just how should AVB play this in relation to squad selection.

There is no doubt that Everton will be a tough fixture and they must be treated with the utmost respect, Everton are serious competitors and if all goes in their favour could reach that elusive top four position, in fact should they win every fixture nobody could stop them doing so. Tottenham and AVB have probably been a little fortunate in that the Chelsea fixture the following weekend has been postponed because of their involvement in the FA Cup against City giving a full 10 days of preparation and rest before facing City in the league, City in the meantime will have that game against Chelsea to battle in and wouldn’t it be nice if they both faced a replay in the  midweek before travelling to the Lane.

The bottom line is that AVB is probably in a position to really go for it tonight as well as against Everton with just the 2nd leg to follow and 2 weeks before their next league fixture. With this in mind expect something like the strongest team lining up tonight perhaps even Hugo Lloris if fully fit and with Benni returning to the left back spot. With William Gallas back in for Michael Dawson the probable line up will be:-

Lloris/Friedel—Walker—Gallas—Vertonghen—Assouo-Ekotto—Lennon—Parker—Dembele—Sigurdsson—Bale—Adebayor.

Clint Dempsey, Lewis Holtby and Steven Caulker will all need a decent amount of game time soon and considering Jermain Defoe  and Younes Kaboul will shortly be available following injury this squad and the bench is about to become a whole lot stronger.
