Tottenham Hotspur plays what amounts to a dress rehearsal against AS Roma at the I-Tech Cup in Spurs’ final pre-season friendly in Haifa, Israel.
In a match that seemingly could have been last season’s Europa Conference League final, Tottenham Hotspur finally faces former manager Jose Mourinho and AS Roma on Saturday in Isreal. The pre-season-friendly I-Tech Cup represents Antonio Conte‘s last chance to get his new side ready for the Premier League. With the opener, next Saturday against Southampton is the team we think Conte will use to best Roma and prepare for the Saints.
Although this group has seen some enhancements with the addition of Richarlison from Everton, barring an injury, no doubt will start across the front three for Spurs.
Left-forward – Heung-min Son
Coming off his Golden Boot-winning season, Sonny is unquestionably the starter at left wing. Showing a bit more holding influence in his game throughout the preseason, Son could be looking to make the next jump in his career – if that is possible – with the talent around him.
Centre-forward – Harry Kane
A workmanlike effort from Harry Kane thus far in the pre-season has led to five goals demonstrating the focus our talisman has coming into the season. A match-up against a former coach, who we know he holds in high regard, should keep Kane in fine form, as Harry may want to talk to Sonny about a shoe.
Right-forward – Dejan Kulusevski
After missing out on the first pre-season game of the year with illness, Kulsevski has seemingly jumped back into the thick of the attack. Dekki is going to see a lot of single coverage playing with Kane and Son, a dangerous and every-ready outlet on the right wing. If Dejan can perfect his move right as he has left, the sky is the limit.
