The Tottenham squad were shown practicing their shooting, with the club's first choice goalkeeper seemingly fully fit ahead of the match against Stoke.
Tottenham released video footage of their training session yesterday on their website and Twitter, showing among other things, a training match with full size goals on a much smaller pitch. It looked to give players the chance to practice their shooting while also ensuring goalkeepers would have plenty of difficult saves to try and make.
The video published by the Spurs site has a few clips sure to be of real interest to Spurs fans. Below is a snippet of the vid, with more here. Firstly, there is footage of Hugo Lloris taking part in full contact training for the Londoners, having missed the Premier League opener against Manchester United on Saturday.

The Frenchman, who played the full 90 minutes in a 4-1 Under-21 win against Everton earlier this week, makes a series of flying stops in the video, keeping out several powerful efforts from teammates with his hands, obviously putting his recently fractured wrist to the test. Luckily, the 28-year-old looks in perfect condition to be making those saves, hinting that he could well be in contention for a spot against Stoke on Saturday.
Excitingly, the star of that aforementioned Under-21 win, Alex Pritchard, was also taking part in the first team session. He scored twice in just 45 minutes against the Everton development side, and he showed that he should be getting a chance to replicate that goalscoring form for the senior side as he finished confidently in the video footage.
Elsewhere in the clip, Danny Rose is seen involved in training, while also taking a breather on the sidelines as he looks to return to the starting lineup, while the likes of Jan Vertonghen, Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane score impressive strikes during the training match.
