On the positive we have Ben Arfa, Cisse, Ba, Cabaye and Tiote all making the starting eleven after varying levels of concern, the only disappointment is that Captain Colo misses out with a thigh injury.
Full starting line-up;
Krul, Simpson, Steven Taylor, Perch, Santon, Ben Arfa, Tiote, Cabaye, Jonas, Ba, Cisse
Subs: Harper, Ryan Taylor, Williamson, Anita, Gosling, Obertan, Shola
I would definitely have settled for this line-up after a worrying week and think this starting eleven can definitely take the game to Spurs.
The talking is over, let’s start the season today.
