Nuno Espirito Santo has picked his Tottenham Hotspur starting eleven for the first time in a Premier League match since taking over as the club’s new head coach.
The Portuguese faces a tough test in his first competitive fixture at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with the visit of Premier League champions Manchester City.
Spurs are yet to concede a goal in their three successive wins over City at their new stadium in North London in all competitions. City manager Pep Guardiola has never lost four away games in a row to one opponent throughout his managerial career.
Hugo Lloris captains the side and will equal Darren Anderton’s club record of 299 Premier League appearances.
Nuno has named an unchanged side from the one which beat Arsenal last weekend, with new signings Gollini, Romero and Gil among the substitutes.
This is who takes to the field for Tottenham this afternoon in North London.
Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris (C), Tanganga, Sanchez, Dier, Reguilon, Skipp, Hojbjerg, Dele, Bergwijn, Lucas, Son
