Confirmed Tottenham line-up v Roma: Walker-Peters starts, Sanchez only on the bench

Mauricio Pochettino, Manager of Tottenham Hotspur speaks to the media during the press conference at Allianz Stadium on February 12, 2018 in Turin, Italy.

Tottenham Hotspur take on Roma in a pre-season friendly this morning.

Tottenham Hotspur starting line-up: Vorm; Aurier, Carter-Vickers, Davies, Walker-Peters; Amos, Sissoko; Eriksen, Lamela, Lucas, Llorente.

Tottenham Hotspur substitutes: Gazzaniga, Whiteman, Sanchez, Eyoma, Georgiou, Skipp, Marsh, Nkoudou, Son.

Tottenham Hotspur are in pre-season action this morning as they take on Roma in the International Champions Cup over in San Diego, California.

Spurs have beaten Football League sides Southend United and Brentford in behind-closed-doors friendlies, but now head to America to face off against sterner opposition without some of their big hitters.

Hugo Lloris, Kieran Trippier, Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Danny Rose, Mousa Dembele, Dele Alli and Harry Kane are all missing the entire US tour due to their lengthy World Cup campaigns, and that has left Mauricio Pochettino with big decisions to make given that he hasn't made a single signing this summer.

Michel Vorm unsurprisingly starts in goal in the absence of Lloris, whilst Serge Aurier, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Ben Davies and Kyle Walker-Peters form a makeshift back four against the Italian side.

Luke Amos partners Moussa Sissoko in midfield, with no place in the squad for Victor Wanyama, with Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura playing ahead of them in creative roles.

Fernando Llorente leads the line despite questions about his future, with Son Heung-min only on the bench having featured for South Korea at the World Cup this summer.

Joining Son on the bench are Paulo Gazzaniga, Alfie Whiteman, TJ Eyoma, Anthony Georgiou, Oliver Skipp, George Marsh, Georges- Kevin Nkoudou and defender Davinson Sanchez, who isn't in the starting line-up despite the club's centre back woes, as he seemingly isn't ready to start after featuring for Colombia at the World Cup.
