Tottenham have reportedly set up two friendlies with Norwich City and Reading across today and tomorrow, however, they will not be shown live according to journalsit Alisdair Gold (Football.London).
Jose Mourinho has organised the two games in the space of 24 hours to field two separate teams to get an understanding of each player’s fitness levels ahead of the Premier League restart next week (Evening Standard).
Spurs restart their domestic campaign with a visit from fellow top-four hopefuls, Manchester United next Friday.
Just four days after the visit from the Red Devils, West Ham travel to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium which could be why Mourinho wants to experiment with separate starting XIs in the friendlies.
Unfortunately for the fans, Spurs are not intending on advertising the location/time of the games and will not be streamed live.
However, as we have seen with other clubs, we could see a short highlight reel after the game, however, any highlights will not give much away in terms of tactics.
Mourinho is believed to be wanting to keep any potential tactical moves a secret ahead of United’s visit.
Spurs Web Opinion
There is so much on the line for Spurs when the Premier League restarts. If Mourinho feels he can get the slimmest of advantages by not revealing any tactical decisions then let’s go with that. We need every point possible when we return.
