Antonio Conte has named his starting eleven for Tottenham Hotspur’s first pre-season match of the new campaign.

The north Londoners take on Team K-League at the Seoul World Cup Stadium in the Coupang Play Series.

Conte revealed at yesterday’s that his plan is to give all of his players at least forty-five minutes of action in the match (Football.London).

Team K-League is made up of two players from every club in the Korean top flight, which consists of twelve teams, meaning they have 24 players at their disposal.

Richarlison makes his first start since joining the club from Everton, while there is a welcome return from injury for Oliver Skipp.

Nothing can be read too much into a pre-season friendly, however, Conte will certainly be looking for his players to play within the tactical system that he explicitly demands.

It is a great opportunity for the fans from Korea to see the Tottenham players in action in the first step of Conte’s preparations for the new campaign.
