Team news: Rebrov back

Posted on 18 December 2000  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Oyvind Leonhardsen and Sergei Rebrov are back in the squad for the big derby against Arsenal on Monday night.

Midfielder ‘Leo’ has been out of first team action for two months but travelled to Bradford City last weekend and scored in his comeback in a private friendly against Fulham on Wednesday.

Ukrainian star Rebrov has been troubled by a thigh injury for a while and missed our trips to Manchester United and Valley Parade.

With Darren Anderton also back from a one-match suspension boss George Graham has a few dilemmas on his hands.

Meanwhile in the red corner, Arsene Wenger will wait until the last minute before deciding whether or not to recall Patrick Vieira.

The influential Frenchman missed the 5-0 victory over Newcastle last week with a hamstring strain and with a trip to Liverpool next week, the Arsenal boss may decide not to risk him in the North London derby pressure cooker. If he misses out, Ray Parlour will continue in the central role he excelled in against the Magpies.

Brazilian left-back Silvinho will regain his place from Nelson Vivas after recovering from a thigh strain.

David Seaman has recovered from his shoulder injury, but Alex Manninger is expected to continue in goal.

Squads: Spurs: Sullivan, Walker, Carr, Perry, Campbell, Thelwell, Doherty, Gardner, Clemence, Anderton, Sherwood, King, Freund, Korsten, Davies, Etherington, Ferdinand, Rebrov, Armstrong, Leonhardsen.

Arsenal: Seaman, Manninger, Dixon, Keown, Adams, Silvinho, Cole, Ljungberg, Parlour, Grimandi, Pires, Bergkamp, Henry, Kanu, Lauren, Wiltord, Luzhny, Vivas, Stepanovs.
