Pienaar, Sandro, Modric, Bale
Van der Vaart
Jones, McCauley, Dawson, Shorey
Thomas, Scharner, Morrison, Tchoyi
Rafael van der Vaart’s goal against Swansea means Jermain Defoe is likely to be on the bench whilE Redknapp will likely remain without Aaron Lennon (hamstring), Tom Huddlestone (ankle) and Ledley King (hamstring).
West Brom is likely to be without Jonas Olsson after the Swede picked up a knock against Everton, so Craig Dawson, who started the last game at left-back, is likely to partner Gareth McCauley in the heart of defense.
Chris Brunt picked up an injury late on against Everton so Somen Tchoyi is expected to play left-midfield.
