The Tottenham team for their Premier League opener against Everton has been confirmed.

Jose Mourinho is without the injured Japhet Tanganga and Giovani Lo Celso, but has been able to call upon two of his summer signings against the Toffees.

Despite just four days training, former Wolves right-back Matt Doherty starts alongside a familiar-looking defence of Ben Davies, Toby Alderweireld and Eric Dier.

Moving forward, Harry Winks gets the nod ahead of Moussa Sissoko – with another new recruit Pierre-Emily Hojbjerg starting alongside the England man in a two-man midfield.

With Lo Celso absent, Dele Alli joins a front-three of Lucas Moura and Heung Min Son, who’re supporting Harry Kane.

Serge Aurier, whose been linked away from Spurs all summer, is on the bench – with record-signing Tanguy Ndombele, Davinson Sanchez, Sissoko, Erik Lamela and Steven Bergwijn.

Joe Hart is also picked ahead of Paulo Gazzaniga, who isn’t in the matchday squad.
