Tottenham will be looking to keep their dreams of FA Cup glory alive when we face Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Harry Redknapp has an injury crisis on his hands at Spurs, with Jermain Defoe said to be struggling with a hamstring problem.


Here’s what we’ve come up with:-


Corluka – Bassong – Dawson – Assou Ekotto

Kranjcar – Palacios – Modric – Bale

Pavlyuchenko – Crouch

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. i think we should try livrmore in the middle.if not give bale a chance.i think he would be a good player fo that psition.he would b the milner type midfielder…expecting a 2-0 victory.COYS

  2. Gomes,
    Corluka, Dawson, Bassong, Bale,
    Palacios, Kranjcar,
    Modric, Eidur, Rose,

    Kranjcar in for Hudd, 5 man MF, Rose RW and Pav lone striker. Subs bench – BAE, Crouch, Dervite, Alnwick, Livermore, Townsend.

    Harry will play 4-4-2 though – guessing Gomes, Corluka, Dawson, Bassong, BAE, Palacios, Modric, Kranjcar, Bale, Crouch, Pav.

  3. My team was exactly same but Modric not in centre but Kranjcar is as I feel he gives better options defensively whilst his offensive play is only slightly less than Modric but he’s no where near light weight as Modric.

  4. I would try Gudjohnsen along side Pav and play Rose on the wing we need to go wide mid-field i would go for Palacios,Modric,and bale with BAE at fullback the rest the same

  5. there is a couple of things need ironing out here Palacios is one card of suspension and we cat risk him .This would be my first half team. GOMES ECOTTO DAWSON BASSONG BALE ROSE CORLUKA MODERIC KRANJCAR TOWNSEND. The three croations in the middle and to English wingers either side Magic but it won happen second half crouch for Rose Gudjohnson for Townsend score 4-2to Spurs

  6. I would play 4-4-1-1

    Corluka Bassong Dawson BAE
    Krancjar Livermore Palacios Bale
    Jol played Lennon in a central position away to Chelsea in the FA Cup and he caused them havoc. I’d try the same with Modric.

  7. I would use the same lineup except insert eidur for crouch. I think they would work amazing together. Eidur likes to play a little furthur up the field, both make good runs, can link well, and both pretty decent in the air. I just think they would compliment eachother real well

  8. charlie can play a holding role in midfield remember. iv a feeling it will be gomes, BAE, dawson Bassong, Bale, krancjar, corluka, palacios, Modric, crouch, Pav………… lets see

  9. As for Palacious, he is one card off suspension and we cant afford for that suspension to be spent in April. He must get another yellow in the next 2 games to ensure he is clear for Arscum, Chelski and M U. On the other hand I dont recall his performances against any of those teams being outstanding first time around.

  10. my only worry with your team selection, is that Modric as good as he is, will I feel make us to light weight in the Bale in the mid, as he has defensive and offensive qualities, and play modders on left or up front or just behind super pav.your team selection could work well, as it has skillful and attacking players.

  11. Cudicini,
    naughton, king, woodgate, kaboul,
    Lennon, huddlestone, jenas, bentley,
    keane, defoe…
    There’s my 11 ;)

  12. gomes
    chalie daws bassong bale
    modric kranj gudjohnsen
    crouch super pav

    attack attack attack – madrid style, if they score 4 we’ll score 5. palacios to protect back 4 much as poss
