With the transfer market in full swing and the start of the new season just around the corner, it’s that time of the year when we love to speculate how the coming campaign will play out.
Andre Villas-Boas may not have had the most successful of spells at Chelsea but the Portuguese boss has had a hopeful preseason and will be making his final adjustments to the squad in the next two weeks or so.
That being said, we’re able to look at the current batch of talent at the club and develop a general idea of just how Spurs will line up in their season opener against Newcastle United.
The following team selection pertains to players currently at the club and all transfer speculation is moot, no matter how strong the link may seem.
In addition, the candidates included are presumed to be at full fitness in order to give us the optimum team available.
Regardless of who may come to the club before the summer transfer window slams shut at the end of August, this is a starting XI that Villas-Boas could well utilize in the coming challenge.
