Hey there gang, it's the final game on the preseason schedule! A week from today, Tottenham Hotspur will be kicking off their English Premier League season against Everton. Today, we have a serious test on our hands, as Spurs will be taking on Athletic Bilbao. If you didn't know, they finished 5th in La Liga last season and have quite a strong side. They're more physical than most sides in the league and they just hired Marcelo Bielsa as their coach, so expect a good combination of tough play and attacking flair. Here's our lineup.

Tottenham Hotspur lineup (4-4-1-1): Gomes; Corluka, Bassong, Dawson, Assou-Ekotto; Lennon, Huddlestone, Jenas, Pienaar; Kranjcar; Pavlyuchenko

Subs: Friedel, Kaboul, Walker, Bale, Livermore, Modric, Crouch, Defoe

I haven't seen Athletic Bilbao's lineup, so if someone could post that in the comments that would be just dandy. This game is on Spurs TV, but since it's not on real television I won't give anyone crap about putting stream links in the comments. Kickoff is at 12:15 pm ET, 5:15 pm BST. COYS!
