The clocks have gone back so a proper night match. Look out for the photos on Flickr after the game. A Carling Cup tie against the Toffees. Thankfully they are more shell shocked than us after two defeats in four days but with O’Hara on loan and players injured we may field a makeshift midfield in order to protect for the Arsenal game on Saturday.
We fancy Hutton to return, Dawson and Bassong and Assou-Ekotto to continue in the back four. Bentley and Bale on the flanks and Jenas and Tommy for the centre. Crouch and Pav will start up front and we hope for Gomes to continue between the posts.
A good side, possibly? We saw Bale start at left mid at Old Trafford and the boy had pace so why not allowing A-E to have a bit of rest at left back. We need Bentley to be interested and with Lennon’s knock on saturday what more reason could there be than a possible game at The Emirates on Saturday if he impresses.
For Dawson and Bassong staying fit will be important for if Ledley fails to shift his illness and Woody does not get over the concussion they are in on Saturday. Daws was a giant on Saturday and I fancy Harry to give him the armband.
A couple of goals to get Stoke out of the system. You bet and with kids at £5 ewach it may be some youthful and high pitched chants during the evening.
Come on You Spurs there’s a chance of Wembley at the end of all this!
