Here is how Tottenham Hotspur’s under-21 side will line up against Everton this afternoon:
Tottenham U21 starting XI: Lloris, Walker-Peters, Ogilvie, Lesniak, Ball, Carter-Vickers, Azzaoui, Harrison, Coulthirst, Pritchard, Oduwa
Tottenham U21 subs: Maghoma, Amos, Sonupe, McEvoy, Voss
Tottenham Hotspur’s under-21 side play their first match of the new season this lunchtime when they face their Everton counterparts.
Spurs have some of the most exciting young players in the country coming through right now, proving the effectiveness of their academy.
Some of those are likely to get first-team chances this season while others will be prepared for another year at this level as they bid to sufficiently impress first-team manager Mauricio Pochettino from afar.
The likes of Cameron Carter-Vickers and Ismael Azzaoui look destined to feature for the senior side further down the line but this afternoon they get the chance to play in front of the club’s number one with French international Hugo Lloris starting for Tottenham.
The game continues his recovery from injury and Pochettino will no doubt be hoping he gets through it unscathed before being able to replace Michel Vorm next weekend.
