Nuno Espirito Santo has chosen his first starting line-up as Tottenham Hotspur head coach as his side travel to Leyton Orient for a pre-season friendly.

The match at The Breyer Group Stadium will see both teams compete for the JE3 Foundation Trophy – played in memory of former Spurs defender and Orient manager Justin Edinburgh, who died two years ago.

From every match ticket sold, £2 is being donated to The JE3 Foundation, set up in his memory and aiming to support UK heart health charities and to campaign for legislative change – Justin’s Law – to make it compulsory for all health, fitness, and sports facilities to be equipped with a Public Access Defibrillator (PAD).

Espirito Santo has chosen a squad with a blend of senior players and younger academy players, having told on Friday that he did not want to push some first team players too hard after a tough week of pre-season training.
