Spurs are incredibly yet to sign anyone this summer, although Kyle Walker has left and joined Manchester City for close to £50million.

Mauricio Pochettino guided Tottenham to a second placed finish last campaign, with Harry Kane winning the golden boot.

Team news
Dwight Gayle is a major doubt for the hosts, with Aleksandar Mitrovic set to lead the line here.
