Line Up: Luton Town v Spurs – Richarlison starts

Ange Postecoglou has named his Tottenham Hotspur side which will take to the field in this afternoon’s Premier League early kick-off against Luton Town.

Tottenham’s record of five wins and two draws in their opening seven games is exactly the same as at the same stage last season under Antonio Conte, however, many fans will certainly say that the whole mood and optimism under Ange Postecoglou feels like the club could finally be heading in the right decision, at least on the pitch.

The North Londoners maintained their unbeaten start to their top flight campaign last weekend with a dramatic victory against Liverpool in N17 which saw them take all three points deep into stoppage time to secure a 2-1 win.

Spurs team news vs Luton Town

Spurs are without Manor Solomon after the Israeli had to undergo surgery to repair a meniscus injury to his knee which he suffered in midweek with Postecoglou admitting he will be sidelined for a number of months.

The Australian told Football.London at yesterday’s pre-match press conference: “Manor Solomon unfortunately during training got a significant injury to his knee, he’ll miss some significant game time over the next few months.

“That’s disappointing because he was contributing for us already and growing into his role. With Ivan Perisic already down, it’s not ideal when you lose a player in that position.”

This is who takes to the field at Kenilworth Road this afternoon:

Spurs: Vicario, Porro, Romero, van de Ven, Udogie, Sarr, Bissouma, Maddison, Kulusevski, Richarlison, Son.

Subs: Forster, Skipp, Hojbjerg, Gil, Royal, Dier, Lo Celso, Davies, Veliz

Luton Town: Kaminski; Burke. Lockyer, Andersen; Brown, Mpanzu, Nakamba, Doughty; Adebayo, Ogbene; Morris.

Subs: Krul, Barkley, Berry, Woodrow, Kabore, Chong, Mengi, Giles, Johnson
