Predicted Tottenham Starting XI To Face Hull City – Vertonghen To Start?

Tottenham Hotspur take on Hull City at the KC Stadium on Saturday afternoon with the north Londoners looking to bounce back after Wednesday’s 5-1 thrashing to Manchester City.

Tim Sherwood could decide to mix things up following the defeat at White Hart Lane and he’ll be forced to make at least one change if Danny Rose’s appeal against his sending off is dismissed by the FA.

Should Rose be banned, Jan Vertonghen could find himself recalled after returning to training last week with Kyle Naughton the alternative for Sherwood if he feels the Belgian isn’t ready.

Paulinho may also return to the starting line-up with Mousa Dembele possibly making way after being replaced at half-time in midweek, while young midfielder Nabil Bentaleb could also drop out for Etienne Capoue – as long as the Frenchman is still at the club following reports of a move away before Friday’s deadline.

Sherwood may opt to revert back to 4-4-2 – a formation that served him well during is opening weeks in charge – with Roberto Soldado returning alongside Emmanuel Adebayor in attack.

Here’s our predicted line-up:

    Lloris, Walker, Dawson, Vertonghen, Fryers, Lennon, Sandro (if fit), Dembele, Townsend (if fit), Eriksen (AM), Soldado. Adebayor was Dire against City and Soldado deserves a shot against a weaker opponent. We need Vertonghen in back in central defense, and Zeki Fryers is a more than capable left back. He is certainly better than Naughton there. Coys!

    Dawson, definitely. Lennon? His performance is predicated upon his service. Man City dominated the midfield, not to Aaron’s fault. He’s easily been our most dangerous player in numerous games.

    I would give Lloris the day off,the amount of he had to do in the last game he deserves one. Now the back four. If Rose wins his appeal, I would go with
    Walks, JV, Daws, Rose
    If his loses I would go with
    Walsh, Daws Chiriches, JV
    One holding payer
    The Beast or Capoue
    Attacking midfield of
    Lennon, Paulinho, Siggy
    and a front two of
    Soldado and Lamela

    4-1-3-2

    sigurdson was awful against man city – as was lennon – we should play lemela on the right and stick with him – there must be a reason why he cost 30 mil.
