Tottenham Hotspur are now just 13 days away from making their Premier League return against Manchester United, however, it won’t quite resemble the game that we’re used to.
It has already been announced that teams will be allowed to name nine players on the bench and make five substitutions per match, rather than the usual seven and three.
Therefore, Mourinho will have far more names at his disposal, allowing him to be more versatile with his on-pitch changes and tactics as players regain their fitness.
With this change to the rules, we wanted to take a look at the current Spurs squad and work out which 20 players are likely to be named on June 19.
Predicted Spurs matchday squad:
Giovani Lo Celso
Notable absentees –
Oliver Skipp – Mourinho may want to get the senior players in good form before giving Skipp a chance
Japhet Tanganga – Wasn’t seen at the recent 11 v 11 training match
Juan Foyth – Likely leaving in the summer
Harvey White – Recently promoted from academy and will likely make squads soon
Michel Vorm – Only two keepers needed
George Marsh – Just came back from loan and played in the 11 v 11 training match
Malachi Fagan-Walcott – Remains on the fringes
Dennis Cirkin – Injured
Troy Parrott – Recovering from surgery
