Nuno Espirito Santo has a number of big issues to deal with as he continues to settle into life at a new club, the biggest priority being the future of striker Harry Kane.
While rumours continue to circulate over the England international, Spurs did at least manage to tie down fellow key man Son Heung-min to a new long-term deal last week.
Spurs have already brought in Pierluigi Gollini to provide some competition for Hugo Lloris, while Cristian Romero is also reportedly close to joining from Atalanta BC.
In terms of on-the-field activity, the Lilywhites started life under Nuno with an underwhelming 1-1 draw at Leyton Orient, before seeing off Colchester United 3-0 last time out.
Son, Lucas Moura and Dele Alli were all on the scoresheet before half time in a routine win for Spurs, who fielded a mix of experienced players and Under-23 squad members.
Nuno will likely take the same approach to this game, but with only two more friendlies to come – against Chelsea and Arsenal – he needs to start thinking about his strongest XI.

As for the home side, they have also played a couple of friendlies this summer, thrashing Coventry City 7-1 in a behind-closed-doors game before losing 3-1 to Bristol City.
The Dons enjoyed spells on top against City, but they were outclassed and were undone by goals from Saikou Janneh, Tommy Conway and Nahki Wells.
Russell Martin made numerous changes as the match went on and Jay Bird, the only player to play the full 90 minutes, pulled back what proved to be a consolation goal
