Tottenham Hotspur name under-21 squad for opener vs Chelsea

Tottenham v Chelsea kicks off this season's Premier League under-21 campaign.

The Premier League under-21 campaign begins on Friday evening, with last season's runners-up kicking off against Chelsea.

Spurs actually finished top of the Elite Group, before losing the final in a play-off to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

There are 10 matches over the opening weekend, while Manchester United begin the defence of their crown a week later against rivals Liverpool.

Tottenham's game with Chelsea takes place at 7.05pm, at Aldershot's stadium, The Recreation Ground.

Spurs have in advance named their squad for the match, featuring several stars of last season, and those attempting to force their way into the first team picture.

The squad is as follows:

Jordan Archer, Jonathan Miles, Alex McQueen, Darren McQueen, Yago Falque, Ryan Fredericks, Kevin Stewart, Giancarlo Gallifuoco, Shaquile Coulthirst, Nabil Bentaleb, Grant Ward, Ruben Lameiras, Dominic Ball, Aaron McEneff, Harry Kane, Tom Carroll.

Chelsea are yet to officially name their squad, but are keen to test themselves against a Spurs side who they did not come up against last season. The way the teams were split, they were kept apart, but this campaign everybody plays against each other and the two London sides can go head to head.

Spurs fans who do you think can make the jump to the first team from the under-21 squad?
