AVB gives injury update ahead of Chelsea clash


We can breath a sigh of relief after both Aaron Lennon and Mousa Dembele have been passed as fit to face Chelsea on Wednesday night.

Both players started the match against Southampton on Saturday; Dembele had to be replaced early on during the match while Lennon was taken off on 60 minutes after the Spurs pair still had some muscle problems which could have been worse if they had played on.

AVB is holding his cards close to his chest on whether either will be fully fit to start the match and is preferring to leave Rafa Benitez guessing.

“Mousa and Aaron will be selected, whether or not they will be available is something we prefer to hold onto and let people know when we get there,” AVB told the official Spurs site.

“They had discomfort and tightness against Southampton and we decided not to risk them.

“As we took that decision, it means they are still in the frame for making this game.

“We have one player recovered, Jake Livermore, and three players out – Sandro, Gallas and Kaboul.”

Have something to tell us about this article?

    Walker – caulker – Dawson – Vertonghen

    Lennon – Dembele – Sigardson – Bale

    Adebayor Defoe

    Keep the wingers wide and go for all. Out attack, if we play to. Congested they will over run us however if we play with width they will be stretched and we stand a chance… ( thought a lot about Ade but he's a great player on his day and he is due a performance and if we feed him I know he will score)

    As for subs holtby has an engine as does Dempsey so bring both on at 70 mins to keep tempo high.

    Still gives Parker to hold in desperate times as well as Huddlestone if its 0 – 0 and 15 mins to go to place the killer
