John Terry is a doubt for Tottenham on Sunday after picking up an ankle injury last night against Maccabi Tel Aviv. I am asking you to name your defensive line for White Hart Lane.

We live in hope that JT will have some tests done tomorrow which will show nothing and he is able to make a quick recovery to lead the team out in North London. However, we also now have to consider the game without our Captain and Jose Mourinho finds himself with a selection headache.

Who does he start as our full backs and who lines up in the middle of the park?

Branislav Ivanovic made his comeback against Norwich and had a pretty solid game but without being disrespectful to Norwich and their Supporters, on Sunday, it will be a very different and tougher test. Should we consider Ivanovic playing as a centre back in this one? Is that something to think about?

Cesar Azpilicueta was rested for Norwich but played against Tel Aviv last night and had a really good game at right back. Ever reliable and quicker than Ivanovic, should Azpilicueta be starting on the right hand side again on Sunday?

Baba Rahman has his shaky moments in defence and at times last night was beaten. However, he also made some important tackles and produced moments in attack that are more than encouraging for us.

Two crosses in the game were sublime from Rahman. The first forced a save from close range from Cesar Azpilicueta but the second was fantastic for Oscar as he fired a cross from left to right which was perfect for Oscar to just make contact with the ball from close range. Could that be a factor in Jose's and YOUR thinking?

In the heart of our back four, Gary Cahill and Kurt Zouma in my opinion pick themselves but at the same time, they both concern me playing next to each other as I personally feel they both need a leader playing next to them, talking to them and guiding them through games positionally.

Both are excellent in the air from set pieces when we are defending and more importantly, attacking and both are good at making important blocks and closing people down; I still feel however, that they need that guidance and without it, we could find ourselves all over the place.

Looking at Tottenham's options in wide areas, they have no real blistering pace from what I have seen so my own personal preference would be to start with the below:

What do you people think? Do you have the same concerns about the Cahill / Zouma combo?

  1. No pace? What about Kyle Walker and Danny Rose? Risky

  2. Rahman Cahill Zouma Aspilicueta.

    Linked to the previous article, I wouldn't mind seeing Cahill up top. Through his career he has shown a strikers instinct in and around the opponents penalty area plus he'd be more 'up for it' than Costa, stronger than Remy and fitter/faster than Falcao. Ivanovic would then play CB.
    I can almost hear the tuts and laughter but if we don't want to play the younger talents (I would by the way) then I really think Cahill would be a good option pending the January transfer window.

  3. As long as Ivan doesn't play, I'll be happy. Baba gave us much needed width on Tuesday night, and should definately feature.

    I wish Dave would pluck up the courage to get behind the defence and cross. Even Willian kept on turning inside.

    Would also like to see Ruben partnering Matic. That would be a solid line up.
