Younes Kaboul

Tottenham Hotspur face Arsenal tonight in one of our biggest games of the season as we look to keep our Champions League qualification hopes alive.

If YOU were Spurs boss, what would your starting team be?

Here’s what we have come up with:-

Gomes

Kaboul Gallas Dawson Assou-Ekotto

Lennon Sandro Modric Bale

Van der Vaart Crouch

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. Jennings (Coz even at his age got to be better than Gomez),

    Kaboul Dawson Gallas, Bale,

    Lennon, Hudd, Sandro,

    Modric

    VDV Pav

  2. Sorry, have I missed anything here? Is Corluka injured? As far as I know, he is not, so he'll play RB. This is the sort of game that you do not play players out of position. I know some people like some of Kaboul's 9 performances at RB, but at least explain why you pick him for this game – because Harry is unlikely to go for it unless forced. Apart from Corluka in, it looks like the team at the top of the page that starts.

  3. Aren't we taking Arsenal's attacking tallents a bit too lightly by omitting Benoit? Other than up front, i thought the main question would be whether we play Big Tom or Sandro. Tom took a long while to get into his grove against a Real Madrid side not overly concerned with making us pay when we gave the ball away. He's coming back from a long lay off and he is not at full speed yet, so we might want the more defensive Sandro for balance. The gap has narrowed and we have beaten them in two of our previous meetings, but remember, they do usually beat us.

  4. gomes (no point sticking cudicini in, that'll just mess with confidence to gomes and the back 4)

  5. Gomes, Charlie (Kaboul), BAE,Gallas, Daws,Huddlestone,Modders, Bale,Lennon,, Pav, Crouch. Drop VDV, giving the side better balance.

  6. If (as I put earlier) we drop Bale to LB he will then not have the 2man marking all the time and will then be better able to push forward, BAE is just too inconsistent… as for the people who want Defoe and Crouch up front, for heavens sake why, they combined have not scored as many as Pav and frankly would struggle in the Blue Sq Prem … Pav is our best bet with Mod's feeding him and Sandro/Hudd holding the midfield (size matters sometimes – ask any bloke!!) …
