Harry Redknapp - Header

With Tottenham looking to continue their impressive start to the season, the focus shifts to Fratton Park on Saturday where Spurs will face Harry Redknapp’s former side Portsmouth, with a lot of fans are already debating about what the team should be.

The Spurs faithful are already waiting to see Harry Redknapp will opt for former Pompey old-boy’s Crouch and Defoe in attack.

Have your say below by leaving your Spurs starting eleven.

Here’s what we have come up with:-


Corluka – Dawson – Bassong – Assou-Ekotto

Lennon – Huddlestone – Palacios – Kranjcar

Defoe – Crouch

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Depends if King can play (I assume so)

    Corluka – Dawson – King/Bassong – Assou-Ekotto
    Lennon – Huddlestone – Palacios – Kranjcar
    Defoe – Keane

  2. Will be a trickier game than people think. Lots of ex players matching up and the return of Redknapp so Pompey will deff be up for this.

    Starting XI

    Corluka – King – Bassong – Ekkoto
    Lennon – Jenas – Huddlestone – Kranjaer
    Defoe – Crouch

    Palacious will only return tomorrow. Redknapp hinted he wouldnt play him after what happened against Man United in the same situation a few weeks back. Not worth the risk for me after that display when travelling back from these far away qualifiers for country.

    I doubt he will risk Woodgate if only just returning. Bassong has played well and fully fit. King is available and suspect he will be back for sure.

    Although i do see him giving woody/dawson 20 minutes. And even Modric a 10 min run out.

  3. -GOMES-




    * If LUKA is injured play KEANE behind the strikers.

  4. I’d prefer Gomes but think Harry will stick with Cudicini…also think Sgt.Wilson won’t be risked (i.e. after display v Man Utd after last World Cup game)……also is Ledley fit?
    so based on that…..
    Corluka Dawson King BAE
    Lennon Jenas Huddelstone Kranjcar
    Keane Defoe

  5. would go with that team also tho would be nice to see bentley given a chance to put some crosses onto crouchs head- plus the fact lennon could be tired from england duty. Think bentleys days are numbered tho as harry dosent seem to like him.

  6. paul boetang couldn’t even get near our 1st team squad and your now praising him as your best player, ha ha, krank was lazy because he was playing for your pathetic team, in ours he needs to work hard or he will not get in the team and thats exactly what he is doing right now!

  7. Its an easy game and we need to get the players back in.


    Corluka, Dawson, King, Bale

    Lennon – Jenas – Kranjcar – Modric

    Defoe/Crouch – Pav

  8. Got to give bale a chance, he was quality for wales in the the international break. Would be nice to see dawson back too.


    Corluka, Dawson, King, Bale
    Lennon – Jenas – Hudd – Kranjcar
    Crouch – Defoe
