You’re the Boas: Pick your Tottenham team vs Hull City


Tottenham Hotspur welcome Hull City to White Hart Lane on Sunday in the Premier League.

After a long trip to Moldova and fielding a surprisingly strong side, it will be interesting to see what changes AVB makes to his side.

We’ll be looking to keep our excellent defensive record going, no side has kept more clean sheets in the Premier League than Tottenham this season (5).

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


Walker Vertonghen Dawson Rose

Townsend Paulinho Sandro Sigurdsson



Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Give Lamela a chance please

    Walker. Dawson. Chiriches. Vertonghen
    Paulino. Sandro ( how could we leave him out?)
    Townsend. Eriksen. Lamela


    Rose will not be ready (I read somewhere) and Chiriches did a good job on the right yesterday, and supposedly he's better on the left, so I'd say him at LB, or put him center with Jan on the left.
    Sandro and Paulinho in the center is our best pairing if you ask me.. depending on the midfield battle ..
    Tough tackling fight…Sandro
    Full control, passing game…Dembele
    Eriksen behind Soldado (because they're our potentially best in those positions, and getting as much game time as possible will be crucial… )
    AND Andros on right AND Lamela on left…swapping as they go..
    I think it's perfect having Lamela on with Andros.
    1. most eyes are on Andros these days, which might take some pressure of Lamela, and could give him a little more room as well.
    2. IF for some reason ALL eyes are on Lamela, Andros will get ALOT of space..
    Eather way, great for Spurs…
    but then again, Gylfi will probably be on left, he deserves it and that's ok with me :-)

    • Spot on Greavsy – couldnt have put it better myself! Siggy and Townsend have both really stepped up since the arrival of some expensive wingers. I actually thought Chadli looked very good when he came on late yesterday – looked fresh. The options available to us on the wings are incredible.. especially considering how limited we were out wide last season. Whoever is picked I expect and easy win. COYS

  3. The right team Greavsy except I would put Chadli on the left. It is his natural position and he has more confidence than Lamela at the moment.

  4. Asuming Rose is not available:

    Walker Dawson Chiriches Vertonghen
    Sandro Paulinho
    Townsend Holtby Sigurdsson

    Don't change a winning team.

  5. Rose will not be fit so sorry Big Jan – you will have to play left back for the sake of the team. Otherwise Holtby to retain his place and therefore exactly the team that started against Villa

  6. Sigurdsson; Sigurdsson SigurdssonSigurdssonSigurdsson; Sigurdsson Sigurdsson; Sigurdsson Sigurdsson Sigurdsson; Ade (just to show I'm fair).

  7. Lloris
    Chiriches, Dawson,Vertonghen
    Walker, Sandro, Paulinho, Townshend
    Defoe, Soldado

    Hull will play everyone behind the ball, so we need to give them something to think about! Play 3-5-2 and attack!

  8. Lloris in Goal (Obviously) Walker back in at RB, Dawson & Chiriches at CB, Vertonghen at LB (Rose doubtful), Pauliniho and Dembele CM, Lennon RM, Eriksen CAM, Townsend LM, SOLDADOOOOOOOOO ! Upfront. With the two wingers playing on their strongest foot, they will provide the natural finisher with loads of crosses, something he has lacked.

  9. Lloris, Walker, Chiriches, Dawson, Vertonghen (as Rose out), Sandro, Paulihno, Lamela (behind.Soldado), Lennon (rw) ,Townsend (Lw), Soldado. Bring Ade on second half give him a chance. Coys
