Tottenham team confirmed vs Arsenal: Lloris starts, Lo Celso sub and Ndombele misses out – Football.London

Nuno Espirito Santo has named his Tottenham team to face Arsenal in their final pre-season friendly of the summer.

Starting off their preparations with a draw away at Leyton Orient, Spurs then recorded convincing wins over Colchester United and MK Dons.

Last in action on Wednesday night as they recovered from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Chelsea, Espirito Santo’s men will be looking to finish their summer friendlies off in style ahead of next Sunday’s Premier League opener against Man City.

Captain Hugo Lloris returns to the team after missing out at Stamford Bridge in midweek, with Davinson Sanchez also coming into the backline to partner Eric Dier at the back.

New signing Cristian Romero is also not included after his move from Atalanta was confirmed on Friday evening.
