Tottenham team to face Cardiff.

Posted on September 22, 2013 by Scraggs

AVB will be forced to field a weakened team against Cardiff today as the injuries pile up, well that might have been the case in past seasons but no more, Tottenham will probably be without Capoue, Lennon, Chadli, Rose, Kaboul and quite possibly even be reluctant to start the game with Dembele following his knock on Thursday, but a weakened team will not start the game today and still the bench will be full of talent.

AVB still faces a couple of dilemmas when choosing the team, Chiriches now has his work permit and is still hoping to make his debut, who should take over in the left back role in place of Danny Rose, the number of choices are surprisingly many more than you might think, Naughton, Fryers, Vertonghen and Chiriches can all do the job but only the youngster Fryers might be classed as a specialist. Other major decisions relate to who starts either side of Soldado with Sigurdsson, Holtby, Lamela and Townsend vying for position.

Tottenham have yet another game on Tuesday this time in the Capital One Cup at Villa,AVB will undoubtedly wish to continue in that competition as it gives his entire squad the opportunity to take part in competitive fixtures, maintain match fitness and catch the eye enough to start more often, and then on to the visit of Chelsea next week.

Tottenham cannot afford to treat Cardiff with anything other than enormous respect, today’s three points and a good performance is very important, this squad is beginning to build a reputation as a formidable outfit, the defeat to Arsenal was reasonably attributed to a new squad of young players needing to be nurtured (well if Jose “the best team lost” Mourinho can use it). This is the team that we believe will start todays game. The bench will still contain Lamela, Friedel, Dembele, Fryers, Holtby, Naughton and Defoe, plenty to change a game if needed.

    If bellamy is back will need experience of vertonghen against him, chiriches alongside dawson. If Dembele is fit he plays as won’t want to risk Sandro so soon after Thursday, don’t want him breaking down again. other than that can’t disagree.
