YOU’RE THE BOSS: Who should start for Spurs vs Wigan?


Giovani Dos Santos

It’s back to the Premier League for Tottenham this weekend as we welcome Wigan Athletic to White Hart Lane.

If you were Harry Redknapp, what would YOUR Spurs starting line-up be for the match?

Here’s what we have come up with. Leave your starting XI’s below:-


Corluka Gallas Dawson Assou-Ekotto

Dos Santos Jenas Huddlestone Bale

Crouch Pavlyuchenko

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Cudicini
    Corluka, Dawson, Kaboul, BAE
    Lennon, Huddlestone, Kranjcar, Bale
    Crouch, Pavlyuchenko
    From what I understand Gallas isn't quite match fit yet, so this might come a week too early. I'd play Kaboul ahead of Bassong.
    In midfield I'd opt for Nico Kranjcar ahead of Jenas. I think he offers more going forward and is better able to make things happen in the middle of the park.
    Up front, assuming Arry gets JD to have the operation, then I would have liked to bring Keane in, but his relationship with the management team is so poor I doubt we'll see him anywhere near the first team, anytime soon, unless it's an emergency.

  2. I would like to see Spurs offensive against Wigan. 9-1 again?

    Curluka, Dawson, Bassong, BAE
    Lennon, Kranjar, Huddelstone, Bale
    Keane, Pavyuchenko

  3. Dont understand why you lot would play Pav, dont get me wrong he was our saviour at young boys but the lad has got no touch, he's clumsy, a turning circle of a bus and generally pap awareness. Am i wrong???????????

  4. With Defoe likely to be playing I predict an unchanged side from Wednesday, aside from the swapping of Bassong for King and Cudicini in goal for the injured Gomes.

    What I'd prefer would be:


    Kaboul, Dawson, Bassong, Bale

    Lennon, Huddlestone, Jenas, Kranjcar

    Defoe, Crouch

    I picture us being able to take the game to Wigan, and with Niko cutting inside from the left and Bale charging forward from LB it would almost be a 3-4-1-2!

    As long as we get 3 points on the board I am not too concerned. Would be nice to see Gio get a cameo and see if he can be a game-changer against some of the smaller teams.

  5. I really dont believe crouch and pav can play together i think they are to similar so i would play gio just behind crouch if defoe does need an op

  6. Just can't stand watching Charlie hobbling up & down that wing!
    Kaboul, Dawson, Bassong, BAE
    Dos Santos, Kranjar, Huddelstone, Bale
    Defoe, Pavyuchenko

  7. cudicini
    corluca dawson kaboul BAE
    lennon hudd palascios bale
    defoe crouch

    palascios played well against young boys and his aggression won alot of balls in midfield. he has to improve his passing. crouch will put the shaky wigan defence under a lot of pressure and kaboul played better than bassong.
