Tottenham welcome back Ben Davies for today’s final pre-season friendly against Roma in Israel.

The Welsh defender – who recently signed a new contract with Spurs – fell awkwardly on his ankle in the draw against Sevilla in South Korea and duly missed the win over Rangers at Ibrox.

However, he’s back in Antonio Conte’s squad now and has made the trip to Haifa. Oliver Skipp, though, is suffering from a foot injury after a knock in training left him needing stitches.

Elsewhere, Spurs’ six summer signings all got a run out in Glasgow and could once again be involved here, with Conte’s selection surely likely to mirror the one he chooses next Saturday against Southampton in their Premier League opener.

Joe Rodon will not feature as he nears a move to French side Rennes and it will be fascinating to see whether or not a certain Nicolo Zaniolo appears for the Italians.

Following the signing of Paulo Dybala, Zaniolo has been strongly linked with a move to Spurs.

Attention, of course, will certainly be paid to Jose Mourinho. Facing Spurs for the first time since his sacking just before the Carabao Cup final loss to Manchester City, his chequered past with Conte adds a different dimension to a friendly match.

Tottenham confirmed XI: Lloris; Romero, Dier, Sanchez; Doherty, Hojbjerg, Bissouma, Perisic; Kulusevski, Kane, Son

Subs: Forster, Austin, Spence, Emerson, Davies, Lenglet, Sessegnon, White, Sarr, Benatancur, Lucas, Bryan, Richarlison

Injured: Skipp (foot)
