Tottenham team to face Southampton.

Posted on May 04, 2013 by Scraggs

Tottenham face a must win, should win fixture today if they are to be considered as true Champions League candidates and one of the teams to finish in the top four of the Premiership, let’s be honest when Tottenham tore Inter apart in the first leg of the Europa Cup Tottenham supporters expected third place at the very least, very similar to the Newcastle scenario last season.

Tottenham go into this fixture against Southampton today knowing that four wins from their remaining four fixtures will guarantee at least fourth place. The old adage of taking one game at a time is more important than ever at this particular stage of the season and AVB has to ensure today that the team goes out, performs and comes away with the 3 points.

Hugo Lloris has now established himself as one of the very best and is a no brainer as are Walker, Dawson and Vertonghen, Benni has performed much better of late and presumably is back to full fitness and finding his form once more, he is of course one of the best leftbacks around when on form, and he would get my nod and probably that of AVB especially with Chelsea game looming, a true specialist leftback could make a huge difference in the run in.

The makeup of the midfield and the system used is probably the most difficult choice to make, against City AVB switched to a 4 3 3 with great effect as they swept City aside and scored those 3 vital goals, my guess is that he will stick with 4 2 3 1 with Parker and Dembele (if 100% fit, otherwise Huddlestone) the 3 in front of them will likely be Bale, Lennon and Dempsey, up top is a toss up between Defoe and Adebayor although my choice would probably have to be Jermain Defoe.

Holtby for Parker or Sigurdsson on the left with Bale central in place of Dempsey could be an alternative, we might even see the 4 3 3 at some stage with Huddlestone, Holtby and Dembele as the driving force again. AVB has a good squad with only Sandro and Kaboul unfit at this time but with games running out it’s pretty much time for the “A” team to see this through.
