Tottenham V Liverpool Combined XI
Now this is the first time that we’ve tried one of these features for the site, but with the biggest game of a surprisingly busy Wednesday evening to look forward to at White Hart Lane between the two sides separated by just four points in the current Premier League standings, it’s an interesting one to explore and debate considering that the two squads are somewhat comparable in terms of the strength of their first XI.
Victory tonight could see Andre Villas-Boas’ side leap up into fifth while Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will be hoping to finally guide his team back into the top ten. The only criteria for selection is that injured players for this fixture are not eligible to play in the combined eleven, so that rules out Scott Parker (achilles), Younes Kaboul (knee) and Benoit Assou-Ekotto (knee) for the hosts and Lucas Leiva (thigh), Martin Kelly (knee) and Fabio Borini (foot) for the visitors. Lining up in a 4-2-3-1 formation that both teams have shown a penchant for this season, let’s get on with our starting eleven.
