Antonio Conte has named his Tottenham Hotspur side which will take to the field in this afternoon’s Premier League clash against Southampton.

Spurs kick off their top flight campaign at home to the Saints at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and will be looking to begin by taking all three points from the encounter.

The match will see Tottenham will play a Premier League home game at 3pm on a Saturday for the first time in 973 days since they beat Burnley 5-0 in December 2019. It’s also the first time they have begun a league campaign at this time since a goalless draw with Aston Villa in 2001.

New signing Richarlison is ruled out through suspension from his time at Everton, while Oliver Skipp picked up a foot injury in training.

Harry Kane has failed to score in seven of his eight opening-day appearances in the Premier League, the exception being a brace versus Aston Villa in 2019-20.

This is who takes to the field in north London this afternoon:
