Tottenham Hotspur face Chelsea on Saturday in another London derby as they look to keep alive their hopes of a fourth-placed finish.

If you were Harry Redknapp, would you make any changes to the starting XI which beat Arsenal on Wednesday night.

Here’s what we think Harry should start with.   Leave your team selection, below:-

Gomes

Walker – Kaboul – Dawson – Assou Ekotto

Rose – Huddlestone – Modric – Bale

Defoe – Pavlyuchenko

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. GK: GOMES

    RB: KABOUL ( IF CORLUKA NOT AVAILABLE)
    CB: DAWSON
    CB: BASSONG ( IF KING NOT AVAILABLE)
    LB: EKOTTO

    RM: BENTLEY
    CM: HUDDLESTONE
    CM: MODRIC
    LM: BALE

    ST: DEFOE
    ST: CROUCH

  2. Gomes
    Kaboul(Don't think Walker will contain Malouda) – Bassong – Dawson – Bale
    Bentley – Modric – Hudd – Rose
    Defoe – Crouch

    • And you think kaboul will? You’ve got to be joking. He couldn’t look after rosicky the other night and constantly gave the ball away. A useless waste of money. We should have learnt the first time.

  3. Rose got injured, remember? Besides, what are you expecting him to do? Score another wonder goal?

    I'll go with VLADO's team, but leaving out Crouch, and bringing in Pav.
    I am really nervous about Kaboul at right back – the moment he gets booked, let's sub him for Walker, otherwise I can see him getting sent off tomorrow.

    Modric likes playing against Chelsea – fingers crossed.

  4. Hey Dan, not only are you overly optimistic of Lennon being fit, but you are also optimistic that Jenas would be too (not counting the optimistic view that he'd actually play well)…

    However, I may come round to your Pav + Gud up front selection. It is not likely that Defoe will score against Chelsea – so why start with him. He will never find the space to unleash his shot, and as for arial battles: forget it. Bring him on later to inject sme pace and sharpness up front. I can imagine all Strikers playing a part tomorrow.

  5. If Rose is fit, you have to play him. Simple as that. The guy will be on Cloud 9 and we can always bring on David Brentley is he's having a bad game. I say keep the same team as long as they're not too knacekered. Bassong will probably come in for King but apart from that, don't change the formula.

  6. If we could put this team out we would control the middle of the park and win the game I'm sure:

    Gomes

    Corluka,
    Dawson,
    King,
    Ekotto

    Lennon,
    Huddleston,
    Modric,
    Kaboul,
    Bale

    Defoe or Pav or Gudjohnsen

  7. Thought Bentley worked really hard when he cam on the other night but was generally poor in posession, he was the main reason we were under so much pressure towards the end because everytime he got it he lost it! Would stick with Rose if he is fit.

  8. Why oh why do people insist on selecting players which are INJURED or rated 50-50 !!! Rose, Jenas, Lennon, Corluka…all doubtful so stop wasting your time selecting these players !!!

  9. I think we will need to stiffle Chelsea more and like we did against Arsenal hastle them form the off and grab our chances when they come. Gomes in goal, back four of Walker, Bassong, BAE + Daws, midfield – Hudd, Kaboul, Modric and Lennon, Gudjohnsen and Defoe upfront.

  10. Gomes

    Walker
    King (Bassong, if King is not fit)
    Dawson
    BAE

    Bentley (Lennon if on bench, then to come on for last 20)
    Huddlestone
    Modric
    Bale

    Crouch
    Defoe

  11. Gomes

    Walker
    Dawson,
    King,(Bassong, if King is not fit)
    Bale

    Bentley (Lennon if on bench, then to come on for last 20)
    Huddlestone,
    Livermore
    Modric,

    Pav
    Defoe

  12. Although it was a great result against the scum on Wednesday we cannot let Chelski camp on the edge of our box. They don't go side to side the way Ar2ena1 do. We have to get to grips in the midfield. They'll line up 4-3-3 expecting to keep our full backs at home to take care of Cole and Malouda. I'd hope that we put Modric on the left and Bentley on the right, having them both come in to help out a center mid that will be outnumbered.

    Gomez
    Walker-Dawson-King(Bassong)-Bale
    Bentley-Hudd-Kaboul-Modric
    Gud-Defoe

    Got a good feeling about this
