Rafael van der Vaart - Tottenham Hotspur news

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to put last week’s disappointing result behind them, but face a tough test in welcoming Manchester United to the Lane on Sunday.

If you were Harry Redknapp, what would your Spurs starting eleven be for the game?

Here’s what we have come up with:-

Friedel

Walker Dawson Kaboul Assou Ekotto

Lennon Modric Sandro Bale

Adebayor Van der Vaart

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. Why no King?

    Same line up for me but I would have king over dawson

    Get Bale to stay on the left and Lennon to stay on the right, we need width especially against Utd.

    Game will be won in midfield, it’s a cliche but it’s true. Scholes vs Modric and in VdV we need that extra bit of quality, the only unfortunate thing for us is that they have a returning Rooney.

    1-1

  2. I would be playing this game as tight as possible in the first half and start the team as:

    Friedal

    Walker Dawson kaboul ekotto

    Sandro Livermore

    Lennon modric bale

    Ade

    Then unleash vdv, Saha, Defoe in second half if needed.

  3. has to be 4-4-2 after the second half change of formation last week i hope Harry realises that Lennon must play on the right as Kranjcar can only play left and Bale has to play there and stop going too central. We had no width second half against the Goons when the game was crying out for Lennon not another holding midfielder when Sandro came on.

    Friedel

    Walker King Kaboul Ekotto

    Lennon Modric Sandro Bale

    Adebayor Van der Vaart

    subs

    Cudicini

    Rose

    Dawson

    Livermore

    Kranjcar

    Saha

    Defoe

  4. I think Ferguson will go with 5 in midfield so we have to match up in there. Livermore just doesn’t do it for me & might make it as a fullback but nor as a cm, It’s games like this where huddlestone is a real miss especially with parker missing. The most obvious choice in cm 3 would b livermore or krankjar with modric & sandro.

    But if it was me I’d go another route & play Ekotto in midfield 3, we know he’s got passing ability he’s quick can tackle & has everything in his locker to do a job in there. Most wks he plays like a midfielder anyway & if Jones & Phil Neville can do it why not benny?

    Before anyone says I’ve lost my mind ask yourself would he b any worse than livermore in there he’s definately better in possesion & can see a pass early. Krankjar is better in possesion but can’t tackle or cover ground or tackle like benny, so in my eyes is a better option than both in there.

    We all know bale has to stay wide but probably won’t so again when bale goes wandering like a little lost boy Benny could go left wing to give an out ball without leaving ourselves exposed at back.

    Here’s what I’d go with 4-5-1

    Friedal kaboul Dawson king walker, lennon modric sandro Ekotto bale, Adebayor.

    What harry will probably go with

    Friedal walker kaboul king Ekotto, lennon sandro modric bale, saha Adebayor

  6. i wish to see spurs play like this

    friedel walker kaboul dawson ekotto sandro modric lennon bale v an dv adeba

    i think the team will play much better

  7. Freidel

    Walker,Kaboul,Dawson,BAE

    Sandro,Livermore

    Lennon,Modric,Bale

    Adebayor

    VDV would be a touch of class but then again he give nothing defensively so i suggest this line up to cope with utd
