Roll on Tottenham Hotspur preseason! One week after Spurs went to the Far East to play two matches in Korea, Spurs are now heading to the Far North... Glasgow, that is. Spurs are in Scotland to play Rangers at the historic Ibrox stadium in a preseason friendly. It’s the Walter Tull Trophy, commemorating the first player of mixed heritage to play for Spurs and also the first to be signed to Rangers.
What will we see? Well, it won’t be Ben Davies who is nursing an injured ankle. However, we will likely see Yves Bissouma and Fraser Forster, who are home after missing the entire Korea trip with COVID, and also new signings Ivan Perisic and Clement Lenglet. It’s Lenglet who I’m most anticipating watching, as he’s quite likely going to be starting at LCB on week 1 against Southampton.
As always, this is a friendly and doesn’t mean anything, so don’t get bent out of shape if Tottenham lose this. At least they didn’t give up four goals to Minnesota United, right?
UPDATE: Alasdair Gold has reported that Oliver Skipp will miss today’s match with a minor knock, and that Sergio Reguilon, Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso, and Harry Winks were all left in London.
Well, after two glorious Korean friendlies that were inexplicably televised in the USA by CBS Sports Network, this time us Americans are out of luck. The match will be streamed SpursPLAY, Tottenham’s in-house premium streaming service (£45/year). HOWEVER, if you don’t mind pro-Rangers commentary, you can also pay a one-time fee of £7.99 to watch the match on Rangers TV.
NOTE: please do not post links to illegal streams in the comments or allude to where people can find them. Illegal streams are bad and get us in trouble. Violators will be banned and comments nuked.
