Tottenham vs K-League XI: l: Confirmed lineups, team news, prediction, kick-off time, TV, h2h today

Tottenham this afternoon begin their first pre-season under Antonio Conte against K-League XI, a team consisting of the best players from South Korea’s top division.

Spurs landed in Seoul on Sunday, welcomed by local hero Heung-min Son, ahead of today’s match and Saturday’s against Sevilla.

Four of Spurs' five summer signings - Fraser Forster, Ivan Perisic, Yves Bissouma and Richarlison - were on the plane and should all get minutes, but Clement Lenglet was unable to sort a visa in time so misses out.

Antonio Conte will use the tour to get a first proper look at his summer signings, though Giovani Lo Celso, Tanguy Ndombele, Sergio Reguilon and Harry Winks have been left at home to find new clubs.

The likes of Bryan Gil, Pape Matar Sarr and Troy Parrott have returned from loan spells and will hope to impress the manager. There is also the chance for youngsters such as Malachi Fagan-Walcott, Charlie Sayers, Harvey White and new goalkeeper Josh Keeley to get to grips with the first team.

Dejan Kulusevski and Ivan Perisic are fitness doubts.

Tottenham vs K-League XI prediction

Wednesday’s game should be a fairly routine run out for Spurs, featuring plenty of changes.

It is the first of four games inside a little over two weeks for Spurs and, with the new Premier League season coming just a week later, Conte will want his charges up and running as soon as possible.
