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:

Harry Kane

Heung-min Son

Hugo Lloris

Serge Aurier

Ben Davies

Toby Alderweireld

Davinson Sanchez

Ryan Sessegnon

Jan Vertonghen

Harry Winks

Gedson Fernandes

Tanguy Ndombele

Giovani Lo Celso

Moussa Sissoko

Dele Alli

Lucas Moura

Steven Bergwijn

Paulo Gazzaniga

Erik Lamela

Eric Dier

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
