7th start for more confident Vorm


With an injury to club captain Hugo Lloris, Michel Vorm will play his second game in a row against Crystal Palace in the FA Cup, barring a freak injury in the warm-up.

Tottenham take on Palace and Emmanuel Adebayor on Sunday at 3 pm GMT, one of three FA Cup ties scheduled, Blackburn Rovers vs West Ham United and Chelsea vs Manchester City being the other two.

The 32-year-old (33 in October) Dutch international spoke with the club website, just as he did before the Colchester tie.

"We have a big group of players, everybody is so competitive and every game you are involved in is a joy. Playing matches is always great and the FA Cup is something special, so that only adds to the occasion. 
"Hopefully we can make it through to the next round because it's a very special competition and we want to do well in it."

He was asked before the Colchester tie: We saw squad rotation come into play at Leicester in our FA Cup replay last week (won 2-0 with Vorm in goal). How well do you think it worked?

"The strength of the squad at the moment is such that we can make changes but it doesn’t really hurt us. We’re playing so well, everybody knows their jobs very well and I know mine so full compliments to the staff. I work very well with Toni Jimenez (Goalkeeping Coach) and Hugo every day to prepare for games and you want to see results, so to have kept a clean sheet and seen us score twice last week meant everybody was happy."

Vorm has played 6 games and conceded 7 goals, keeping 1 clean sheet. he has played 3 FA Cup ties, 1 UEFA Europa League tie, 1 Premier League game and 1 League Cup tie.

  • 08 Aug Manchester United (a) Lost 1-0 Premier League
He is looking a safer pair of hands now than he did when he arrived. He, like Lloris when he first arrived, was making a mistake a game and didn't look very comfortable with the sweeper keeper role. he is a traditional stay at home keeper controlling his box. Now though he seems more confident in his role and was unlucky to concede during the week. Travelling backwards is the most difficult skill for a keeper and with the ball spinning into the top corner he had little chance.

he'll need to be on top of his game with a fired up Adebayor undoubtedly out to put one over on us.
