Happy Spursday, Spursland! Today, Tottenham Hotspur take on Espanyol at White Hart Lane in their final preseason match before the new Premier League season. In eight days time, you can watch Tottenham take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in a game that actually matters.
Paulinho, Roberto Soldado and Nacer Chadli all get their first starts for Spurs, with the latter two making their first appearances in a Spurs shirt. The lineup looks like one that we could conceivably see in a league match, though let's hope Jan Vertonghen and Younes Kaboul are 90 minutes fit for the first game of the season.
Line-up v Espanyol: Lloris; Walker, Dawson, Fryers, Rose; Dembele, Chadli, Paulinho; Lennon, Soldado, Sigurdsson. #THFC— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) August 10, 2013
And our subs vs Espanyol: Friedel, Kaboul, Naughton, Stewart, Huddlestone, Sandro, Townsend, Defoe. #THFC— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) August 10, 2013
Look, it's Kaboul and Sandro on the bench! They'll probably play! YAAAAAY!
Kickoff is at 5:30 p.m. ET, 12:30 p.m. ET. You can catch the game on ITV 4 in the UK and beIN Sport Español in America.
