Tottenham has started the season 13-2-2 in all competitions and is undefeated outside the Barclays Premier League. The grueling schedule of Thursday Europa League games and Sunday Premier League games has forced Andre Villas-Boas to use his whole roster and we've seen almost every player. Emmanuel Adebayor and Heurelho Gomes are the only players that haven't seen the pitch yet this season.
With all the transfer acquisitions seeing time through European or domestic play, Villas-Boas has probably selected a tentative best XI, but how long will it be before we see that squad on the pitch together?
The amount of games on the schedule likely won't allow for the best XI to play together before the international break. The Manchester City fixture looks like the one opportunity for Villas-Boas to show the full power of the side before the even more demanding December set of fixtures. Qualification for the knockout stage of the Europa League certainly increases the chance of seeing the best XI sooner rather than later.
Here is the best XI for Tottenham Hotspur using the 4-2-3-1 formation used this season.
