Breaking news from the Spurs camp on Monday morning claimed that Harry Kane failed to report for pre-season testing, with the England captain supposedly keen to complete a move to Manchester City this month.
Kane was never likely to be involved here either way, and Lilywhites have also had to make do without Ryan Sessegnon in pre-season due to a hamstring problem, but there is optimism that the ex-Fulham man will be fit in time for the start of the Premier League season.
Alfie Whiteman was given the gloves for Spurs' most recent pre-season clash with MK Dons, but Atalanta BC loanee Pierluigi Gollini could now be handed his non-competitive debut for the club in the English capital.
English duo Harry Winks and Eric Dier were also nowhere to be seen last time out but ought to return to the squad for Wednesday's game, with the former potentially linking up with another returnee in Tanguy Ndombele.
Recent arrival Bryan Gil remains with Spain's Olympic squad in Tokyo, but Spurs have fielded a highly experienced attack in his and Kane's absence, with Lucas Moura, Dele Alli, Steven Bergwijn and Son Heung-min all in line to feature here.
Tottenham possible starting lineup: Gollini; Doherty, Tanganga, Dier, Reguilon; Winks, Ndombele; Lucas, Alli, Bergwijn; Son
