Tottenham coach Jordan warns Hearts: Redknapp must select strong line-up
Tottenham coach Joe Jordan expects manager Harry Redknapp to field a strong line-up against Europa League opponents Hearts.
The Europa League showdown will be Spurs' first competitive game of the season after last Saturday's clash with Everton was called off because of the London riots.
And with Manchester United away up next Monday, Spurs coach Jordan insists manager Redknapp HAS to give his top stars a game at Tynecastle.
Jordan told the Scottish Sun: "I don't think leaving certain players out will enter the gaffer's head.
"He knows the difficulty of the Hearts game and the danger of the opposition.
"There's a certain balancing act you have because we haven't played a competitive game yet. We have the Hearts game then we have three games in six days starting next Monday at Man United.
"Our preparation will be right, but we have one or two injuries and have to get our house in order.
"When we get to Tynecastle, it will be a sell-out, very compact, but Harry knows the Scottish crowd and what it means.
"In recent seasons it hasn't happened much and these are always good fixtures."
