Tottenham face off against Atletico Madrid in their second International Champions Cup game tomorrow and they will hope to improve upon their first encounter with Juventus.

A young Spurs side conceded two early goals against the Italian giants on Tuesday but battled back well in the second half and could have snatched the draw.

Diego Simeone’s impressive outfit are the next opponents and we’ve provided a potential Spurs starting XI below:

Kevin Wimmer is fit again after recovering from a minor knock and should return to add security to central defence alongside Cameron Carter-Vickers, who outperformed Dominic Ball against Juventus.

While naturally a right-back, Kyle Walker-Peters has played on the opposite side and would be a more natural fit than Will Miller was on Tuesday. On the other flank, DeAndre Yedlin impressed when he came off the bench and should be given an opportunity from the start.

Victor Wanyama keeps his place in central midfield after a strong display and should be partnered by Harry Winks, who offered far more energy and drive than either Tom Carroll or Ryan Mason managed.

In attack, Erik Lamela starts after his game-changing performance against Juve, while Christian Eriksen features following a recent bout with illness. 

The third spot in attacking midfield is up for grabs and while Josh Onomah and Miller (who is naturally an attacker) are in with a shout of starting, the name on everyone's lips is Marcus Edwards.

The 17-year old is viewed as one of England's most promising prospects and showed glimpses of what he can do as a second half substitute in Tuesday's defeat. A longer run out is needed if the diminutive midfielder is to get accustomed to playing in Tottenham's senior side.

Vincent Janssen should keep his place up top as he attempts to learn the requirements of Pochettino's system and he will hope to make more of an impact than he did against Juventus.
