YOU’RE THE BOSS: Pick your Tottenham team vs Norwich City

Tottenham Hotspur travel to Norwich City on Sunday morning looking to keep our Champions League hopes alive when we face one of our own in an under pressure Chris Hughton.

Tim Sherwood will be looking for his players to bounce back after the poor 1-0 defeat at the hands of Dnipro last night, when in fairness we could have easily been 3-0 down going into the second leg.

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

Lloris

Walker Kaboul Vertonghen Rose

Lennnon Sandro Dembele Townsend

Eriksen

Adebayor

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. I AGREE WITH THE TEAM SELECTED TO PLAY NORWICH ONLY FOR THAT THIRD DIVISION PLAYER ROSE GET SHOT OF HIM AND THE WEAKLINK WILL BE GONE .

  2. did you watch last nights game? you comment that we could have been 3-0 down had we taken our chances, we could have been 3-0 up!!

    • Totally agree with you Jack! We don’t need a defensive midfielder against norwich… with dembele and paulinho in the middle we have two players who cover for eachother when one goes forward.

      Plus, i would like to see adebayor and soldado up front (even though soldado is CURRENTLY pretty unable to score) he does a good job when he drops back takes the ball and makes some nice passes.

  3. It's a game of opinions for sure as Rose has been excellent since he's been back, but John thinks he's rubbish. You can't leave Paulinho out – he has contributed much more than Eriksen, for example. However with Sandro unfit just put Paulinho in for him and I'd pick your team. COYS

  4. i agree with Nic's team except Sandro is not fit so Capoue to start – Bentaleb needs a rest, it would be noce to see Siggy come on in the 2nd half if we are ahead by that point

  5. ……………………….Lloris

    Walker……Kaboul….Vertonghen…..Rose
    ……………………..Capoue
    …………….Paulinho…Bentaleb
    ..Dembele…………………………..Chadli
    ……………………Adebayor

  6. Lloris, Walker, Kaboul,
    Verthongen, Rose, Paulinho, Dembele, Sandro, Townsend, Eriksen, Adebayor,

    Bench.
    Friedel
    Dawson
    Chiriches
    Capoue
    Lennon
    Lamela
    Soldado

    Best Team He Could Put Out :)
    But I Would Love Souleymane Coulibaly Be Given A Chance From The Youth/Reserves.

    • Why have you got Lennon in your team, is he gonna win headers ,win tackles , play through balls ,is he going to cross no he doesn't know how to can he shoot . If Timmy told you he was going to buy a winger who can't shoot, head the ball, that can't cross, is not a strong tackler what would you say all he does is run forward and backwards has he progressed in the last 7 years , u must be mental or I must be mental because I see a player that can't do anything well.

  7. My team

    Lloris

    Walker Kaboul Vert Fryers

    Capoue

    Dembele Paulinho Bentalab Eriksen

    Adebayor

    There’s no point playing Townsend or Lennon, 1 always shoots the other can’t cross so what’s the point playing any of our wingers . At least with this team eriksen and dembele are good crossers of the ball

  8. Interesting her on 2 points – nobody seems to rate Bentaleb!! BUT not many like Rose but put him in anyway!!
    my team would be:-
    Lloris

    Walker, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Fryers [can't be worse than Rose or Naughton}

    Lennon, Paulinho, Sandro, Dembele

    Eriksen

    Adebayor

  9. We often seem to be wrong-footed by who's injured, etc. So I'll let the manager surprise me with the team and subs on Sunday afternoon. We can expect his strongest selection, so looking forward to the game and a Spurs win.

  10. Lloris,
    Naughton, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Rose
    Capoue (or Sandro if fit )
    Walker, Paulinho, Dembele, Eriksen
    Adebayour
    Subs: Gomes, Dawson, Bentaleb, Lennon, Chadli, Kane

  11. Lloris

    Walker Kaboul Vertongen Naugton

    Dembele Paulinho

    Eriksen

    Lennon Adebayour Townsend

    Sandro is a possibly start against Norwich if fit enough would replace for paulinho. COYS

  12. Lloris Walker kab. Jan rose ( must improve) dem ( shoot more ) pauliniho (don't go missing ) cap destroy and pass Townsend ( take defenders on ) try ade and sugar from the beginning Subs Erikson Dawson freidal Ben sol

  13. Did you guys that chose Chadli and Capoue see how poor they were in the Ujraine ? You can add Townsend and Soldado and Benteleb to the shit in The Ukraine category.
    Lloris
    Walker Kaboul Verts Rose
    Demebele Benteleb
    Lennon Eriksen Townsend
    Ade

    subs brad naughton, daws, capoue, chadli, soldado ziggy

    • Sorry, but Townsend was 10 times worse than Chadli on Thursday and you still included him in your starting XI (alongside poor Bentaleb)

  14. forgot Paulinho – is that a mistake or prophetic ? Paulinho has been super disappointing this season but Tim will pick him !

    Lloris
    Walker Kaboul Verts Rose
    Dembele Benteleb
    Lennon Pauliho Eriksen
    Ade
