You’re the Boas: Pick your Tottenham team vs Everton

33

Tottenham Hotspur travel to Everton on Sunday in what could be one of the toughest away trips of the season.

The physical and aerial threat of Romelu Lukaku will be on the mind’s of Tottenham fans and it will be interesting to see who AVB selects as his central defensive pairing to try and combat the powerful Belgian.

If you were AVB, what would your Tottenham starting XI be? Here’s what we have come up with:-

Lloris

Walker Dawson Kaboul Vertonghen

Townsend Paulinho Sandro Sigurdsson

Eriksen

Soldado

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. Lloris

    Walker Dawson Vertonghen Chiriches or Rose Vertongen to left back if Rose not fit

    Townsend Paulinho Dembele Sigurdsson

    Eriksen

    Soldado

    bench Friedel Lamela Sandro Chiriches if not playing Kane Dawson Holtby Defoe

  2. Lloris

    Walker – Dawson – Kaboul – Vertonghen(Rose if back from injury)

    Townsend – Paulinho – Dembele – Sigurdsson

    Eriksen

    Soldado

  3. Here's mine…

    Soldado

    Sigurdsson Holtby/ Townsend
    Eriksen

    Sandro Paulinho

    Vertonghen Chiriches Dawson Walker

    Lloris

    It's a toss up between Holtby & Eriksen… whoever has impressed AVB more in training will get the nod.

  4. ——————Lloris———————

    Walker Dawson Kaboul Vertonghen

    ————-Sandro Dembele———–

    Townsend——-Holtby———-Siggy

    ——————Soldado—————–

    SUBS: Friedel / Chiriches / Paulinho / Erikson / Lennon / Lamela/ Defoe

    Kaboul if he's fit enough after the Cup game, otherwise Chiriches instead.

    Dembele instead of Paulihno for his ball retention, and the fact Paulinho has had alot of minutes and is still acclimatizing.

    I would say start Lennon because he's fresh and is a outlet away from home but after Siggys goal and performance the other night its difficult to drop him.

    Holtby instead of Erikson again because he's fresh after not playing and he has more industry for an away fixture, he can also switch with Dembele and drop back if needed.

  5. Paulinho and Dembele have been useless all season. They need to be sold in January. They are the reason for boring negative football and no service to Soldado.

  6. Sandro has got to start. I can't understand why so many comments have him not in the team. He's the only one who can play Lukaku.

    Only changes to the OPs teams is I'd put Holtby in instead of Erikson. For me he's just a bit more robust. And Kaboom needs a rest so go with Chiriches.

  7. ……………………………Lloris……………………………

    Walker………….Dawson…………….Kaboul………………Vertonghen

    …………………….Sandro………………….Holtby………………………………

    Townsend………………………Kane……………………………..Eriksen

    …………………………………….Soldado……………………………………….

    Subs: Friedal, Capoue, Chiriches, Naughton, Lennon, Defoe, Sigurdsson

  8. You know that AVB will field a starting IX that makes no sense to most people (look for Lennon and Holtby to start ahead of Siggy and Eriksen), but I'll play.

    Walker. Dawson. Chiriches. Vertonghen
    Paulinho DM. Holtby
    Lamela. Eriksen. Townsend.
    Soldado

    I would move Townsend over to the left to give some width and keep away from Baines. I would like him to cross more and shot less. He could use his speed to beat the RB and provide some nice balls to Soldado. Lamela I think is about to break out and needs another start to get him going. Holtby as the deep lying playmaker with Paulinho as the DM is something that I wish AVB would consider. Eriksen needs to play in the #10 each week to get in a rhythm. Every game, he plays with a different striker and different wingers which can not help to learn the tendencys of the players around you.

  9. This will not happen, but should;

    …………………………….Loris……………………………….

    Walker……….Chirches………Vertonghen………….Rose

    …………Paulinho……..Capoue………….Dembele………..

    Lennon……………………………………………Townsend

    …………………………….Soldado………………………………

  10. Lloris
    Walker Dawson Kaboul Vertonghen
    Sandro Holtby
    Townsend Lamela Eriksen
    Soldado

    Subs: Friedel, chiriches, Lennon, siggy, defoe, Ade Pauliniho

  11. Lloris
    Walker-Dawson-Chiriches-vertonghen
    ————Sandro——————-
    —–Eriksen——Siggurdson——–
    Townsend—Soldado—-Lamela

  12. loris, walker daws chirches vert. capue holti eriksen lennon/towns siggy goaldadoo; ndembele shldnt start as he fails to make foward passes and holds the ball unneccesarily

  13. I would also like to see holtby in the deep playmaker role

    My team would look like..

    Lloris..

    Walker..

    Dawson..

    Vert..

    Rose. (If fit)

    Paulinho (dm)

    Holtby..

    Townsend

    Eriksen

    Lamela

    Soldado.

  14. dis man plays negative football- he plays defense high up the pitch wic conjests the play (in an already small pitch)…. for this we need players lik modric with creativity but instead plays 2 holding midfielders… there s no service 2 forwards @ all bcos of this wic explains y we r not scoring goals…. pls bring in Michael laudrup or Southampton manager or I say we hv a winner in Roberto mancini- had it not been 4 Joe hart he wud hv still been @ city

  15. I can see AVB going with the same team that won at Villa on the last away trip:

    Lloris

    Walker Dawson Chiriches Vertonghen

    Paulinho Sandro

    Townsend Holtby Sigurdsson

    Soldado

    Subs – Friedel, Kaboul, Capoue, Dembele, Eriksen, Lamela, Defoe

  16. Loris Walker chiriches vertongen kaboul Lamela dembele paulinho tausend Sigurdson soldado. Play 4 4 1 1 .. Sig behind solddado …. Sub : Lennon

  17. Lloris
    Walker – Dawson – JV – Naughton/Rose
    Paulinho – Sandro
    Holtby – Kane – Townsend
    Soldado

    Citizen Kane to show Romelu how it is done. JV to shadow his countryman.
