Sigurdsson - Big month for Spurs

Gylfi Sigurdsson is once again available after playing 45 minutes for Iceland against a Gareth Bale inspired Wales. Having been out for a while though he will probably be on the bench.

"That was good for Gylfi. He needed the match time and he's in the squad for Chelsea" said Tim Sherwood at his press conference on Friday.

The 34 year-old Icelandic international has figured centrally and on the left so gives Sherwood options from the bench. There is a suspicion that under the Tim Sherwood style of play he might be able to blossom centrally where he was so good for Swansea.

He met up with his former teammates and had some words of encouragement for boss Gary Monk.

"Probably half of the Swansea team was there on Wednesday. I saw a few of them after the game and it was good to catch up.

"I'm sure Swansea will be fine. The way they play football is going to get them out of there.

"As long as they score a few goals they'll be fine. Garry was one of the leaders in the squad when I was there.

"I didn't think he'd be first-team head coach so soon, but he's got the chance so hopefully he can make sure they stay in the league and then build on that next season.

"And if they get results why should they change the manager?"

Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood have both played him on the left which does him no favours really, it's a square pegs in a round hole situation. With Andros Townsend and Nacer Chadli vying for the berth reverting Gylfi back to the centre may not be such a bad move.

I'm sure the system AVB played didn't suit him being central as their was nobody stretching the width to create the gaps for him to play the ball through.Gylfi of course will do a job wherever he is picked and he is hoping he does get some game time against Chelsea.

"Last season it was a good pass from Ade and I just managed to finish it, and this season it was Christian with the cross and Robbie (Soldado) with the lay-off.

“It wasn’t just me on target at Stamford Bridge though. I remember that goal from Ade. It was an unbelievable goal, the way he ran up and just casually finished it into the top corner.”

“Of course I want to score again tomorrow – that’s the aim! It’s a very important game for us. We know it’s a big month coming up for us, we’ve got loads of important games and hopefully we can get three points tomorrow. It will be a good start to the period of tough fixtures we have.”
